Got a great deal on a 2nd hand Cartier Santos TT auto, only down side is that they couldn't really polish the screws on the band after they brushed the bracelet. I also asked Cartier about polsihing the screws on my previous Santos and they said it was too time consuming and reccommended for me not to as it would be $$$ and would not be 100%

Gotta stop spending now

I only where Citizen Eco Drives. Can not where watches with batteries, they die after a day or two. Had the Blue Angles edition but gave it to my brother when I retired and the Mat Kenseth edition that went to my father. Grandfather always said, "must have nice hands perfect nails, good looking feet and toes, hair always cut, and MUST have nice watches". And shoes polished! Also have a Russian made watch I got from a Russian soldier. Manual wind, red star marking at top, and the crystal is made of plastic. They were using all other materials during the war, and had to use plastic. Nice simple great looking watch but not very practical.

You could get an automatic. Mine usually will last a few days without being worn before the power reserve runs dry. I suppose I could always get a watch winder but that seems a bit excessive for my humble collection.. maybe one day

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Picked this up at the gunshow today. Soviet made. New leather band.

Don't know too much. It's an automatic and requires manual winding.

Not to nitpick, but if it requires manual winding it's not an automatic.

I definitely want to get one. They sell for under $100 on the internet, but I want to go to Russia and actually get one so it means more.. yahmean?

Some automatics can be hand wound, not a requirement, but potentiality.

What do you mean? Autos charge by the kinetic energy created via your movement as you wear them.... but if you let them sit on a shelf or in a watch box, they'll die and require you to wind them...

Girlfriend randomly gave this to me.. as a thank you for bringing her food to her office one night when she was working late last month. She said the dials on the chrono (in particular the day of the week) reminded her of the gauge pod in the bmw





Gotta add it to the collection
