My "new" pulsar railroad approved watch! Still better than most of the watches that Drop used to offer!

I have a railroad pocket watch (on the left in this shot). Can't be sure it's truly an approved version, but it does have a nice engraving of a steam locomotive on the obverse of the case. It's accurate so long as you wind it on a regular basis. My favorite feature though is that rather than tic marks to indicate minutes, this dial actually shows them--by number! Makes it very easy to tell the exact time without the mental exercise of counting the little indices--damn near as easy to read as a Casio digital! On the other hand, not as easy to wear on the wrist as yours ;- )

I appreciate a nice vintage pocket watch! I love that Elgin! I would probably own own but I'm too lazy to have to reach into my pocket to get the time lol

Bought that Elgin at an antique shop on Young Street, in Toronto back in the 60s--or more accurately, my parents bought it for me--I was a kid at the time. Interesting thing about pocket watches--in their heyday (pre WWI), movements and cases were normally purchased separately--first you'd select the movement, and then pick the case (movements and case were sized by number: a Number 6 Movement required a Number 6 Case, and so on). From time to time, a guy might keep his movement, but upgrade his case--or the opposite if the case was engraved and had special meaning. Another interesting thing about cases is that whenever a watch was repaired or serviced, the jeweler or watchmaker would scratch his initials and date (or a code for the same) on the inside of the case, where others would find it during future services. There are a few markings on that Elgin case, but none that make any sense to me.

Diving with an old boy - SEIKO SKX013
Yes, It is summertime. Heat waves are already here and the sea is calling. It was time for an automatic adventurer that can decently deal with sea water, yachting, snorkeling and most kinds of summer activities, so I started looking for a mid-size diver's watch. 'Out there' I found several market options and budget solutions ( from brands like Vostok, Citizen, Invicta ) but the watch that really got my attention was the Seiko SKX013. A watch that many collectors seemed to refer as a legend for it's category and I could clearly see why.. Simple design, durable manufacturing & good finishing. This watch seemed to be what I was looking for. Elegant proportions and great wearability on a very dynamic sporty look. By the moment I noticed it, everything else looked just like an alternative. Sadly the next thing I noticed was that SKX line discontinued just few years ago and Seiko's current options on automatic dive watches was not close to it's characteristics and...

Announcement - Changes to Hidden Posts
Hey everyone, we are making some changes behind the scenes that I wanted to share with you all so you aren't caught off guard if you notice anything different. As you may be aware, we have a few different Moderation tools available to us to assist with moderation on the site. In an effort to increase transparency and minimize what could be perceived as egregious moderation, we will be changing the behavior of Hidden Posts, along with some accompanying changes to moderation procedures. Currently, a moderator can choose to hide an offending post, which effectively removes the content of the post/comment while leaving behind a message that the post was hidden. This behavior was selected in order to leave a public record of the removal. However, one concern with this methodology is that the user (and general public) has no feedback as to why the post was removed, nor any recourse to engage in a discussion regarding the decision. Going forward, there will be two potential paths that...

I was saving up for some sweet outdoor gear and checked in to see it's no longer a category. What happened?
