My watch collection
Seiko 5 Sports
One my two first watches that I bought in Singapore during my travels. It showed me that with a sporty field-watch design I can wear even 42mm watches on my small 6,5 inch wrist.
Seiko 5 Sports
One my two first watches that I bought in Singapore during my travels. It is so wearable and universal that this is definately a watch that I've worn the most until noways. It shows as there are many scuffs a scrufs on them, but I love them so much.
Seiko Moving Design (Discus Burger)
For a long time my "grail" watch. I just loved the unusual design even when it was released, but it was out of my reach in that time. I finally managed to buy a nice used piece in October 2020 directly from Japan. Love it so much.
Nomos Orion Neomatik 39 Silvercut
I longed for a Nomos watch for a long time. I love the minimalistic design of their pieces and the work they have done with their calibers throughout the years, but I was always hesitant to buy one. There were no dealers here in Czech Republic and I wanted to try some of their wateches before purchase. Finally, in 2019 we stopped directly in Glashutte during one of our trips to Dresden and I tried some models and sizes in the boutique. And my wife "forced" me to buy it :-)
Swatch Sistem51 Hodinkee Generation 1990
While i admire what watchmakers can do with their own hands, I'm also a fan of modern technology. So the Sistem51 movement completely built by robots is so tempting for me as well. So finally by the end of 2020 I scored this Hodinkee Generation 1990 version.
Timex Marlin® Automatic x Peanuts 70th Anniversary
My wife supports me so much in my strange hobbies. She got me this beautiful Marlin with a Snoopy on the dial for my birthday. I'm a (copy)writer, I like iconic designs and I also love when my watch isn't so serious about "itself". So a Marlin with a Snoopy with typewriter is a thing I really love.
Mido Starking AM0184
I was always curious if cheap Chinese watches can be any good. After seeing positive reviews of this ultra-affordable Starking watch, I just decided to try it on my own. And for about 50 USD this is an amazing looking thing (admitedly looking a lot like Mido Baroncelli Heritage). Wonder how long will it work though.
PRIM Sport II
I just wanted to have some of the Czech timepieces in my collection so one day I snatched this vintage Prim Sport II, a true Czech Classic. First I wanted to have it factory restored, but in the end I decided that the watch is in pretty nicely worn state and I'd wear them just like that. It just needed some smaller repairs and cleaning and here it is, I truly enjoy it on a simple nato strap - its so light and comfortable, very sweet.
Vostok Wostok 18 jewels
This is my grandfathers watch and it will always have an immense sentimental value for me. I actually know very little about the watch itself, but it doesn't matter. I'll always remember my grandpa when wearing it or even having a glimpse on it in my drawer. And that makes me happy.
Seiko 5 Sports
I just wanted to have this "legend" and when all the hype was over, I bought it. I'm really impressed by the dial, it looks so much more expensive.
Yema Superman GMT
I've been eyeing Yema watch for some time and I finally pulled the trigger at the beginning of 2021. I learned that they're not planning to release more bronze GMT they raised up money for in Kickstarter, so I went the oposite way and bought one of the last ETA 2893-2 GMT Supermans available. After arriving, I had to return it for a repair almost immediately, but everything seems all right now and I really love the details of the watch.
Orient Smart Disc
I like watches with unusual designs and the Smart Disc is one of the most accessible "mystery dial" watch and I really like the depth of this dial. It is a fun watch and despite the terrible bacelet (the black "PVD-style" is not helping here) I really love wearing it.
Timex Q Reissue
I like design icons. And the Timex Q Reissue was a tempting thing for me for quite some time, so when I found one for sale in one of the local watch enthusiast Facebook group for a nice price, I went for it. And I'm so happy with it. The size, the case shape, the warm colours of the traditional pepsi combination, all of this makes the wearing the watch a charm. It feels so comfortable on my small wrist, even the bracelet is of an unexpected quality. And of course, its a great grab and go watch.
Seiko 5 Sport
The new Seiko "dresskx" got me interested as soon as they were introduced. I just wasn't able to decide which verion I want and also I was waiting for the prices to drop a bit as the original msrp didn't seem too "seiko 5ish". But when I saw these well under 200 USD on Amazon Japan, I went for it - the gilt dial, as I didn't have any other watch with this colourway. And I'm so happy with it. It's such a good looking watch, very well made too, comfortable on the wrist (original bracelt went off).
Zelos Swordfish 40mm bronze teal
Bronze and the way it develops patina got me interested a long while ago, but the moment I decided to pull the trigger was only when Zelos announced that they're going to have a SF40 with a matching bronze bracelet. I love bracelets (really my prefered way of wearing a watch) and the bronze is such a unique thing. It is already getting some nice patina and it feels so special to me.
