I'm starting to get into collecting Wristwatches and just made my first acquisition , a Maurice Lacroix Jour et Nuit in full 18k gold. Mechanical art for the wrist ! Anyone else a collector or have a favorite watch? I'm now looking at a Martin Braun EOS with black face and a rose gold case and a Chronoswiss Delphis gold and steel. 8)

That sounds like a very expensive hobby.

That does sound expensive ! Well, if you're into it, then give it a try. In the mean while, I'll stick to me 52 pieces of cardboard that can keep me busy for hours.

horology is watch collecting?

I thought it had something to do with prostitutes. Guess I won't be following this post.

Recently back from a one-month holiday in Malaysia. My brother bought an amazing new and totally genuine Swiss Tissot watch there.

First, press the winder for a second or so and then touch the crystal at the 2 o'clock position and the watch forecasts the weather; touch at the 4 o'clock position and the watch tells you the altitude; touch at the 6 o'clock position and the watch tells you the temperature; touch at the 8 o'clock position and the watch becomes a stop-watch; and, darn, I forgot what it does when touched at the 10 o'clock and 12 o'clock positions (my brother's away right now).

Honestly, this is not a wild attempt to wind you up (no pun intended) The watch genuinely does exactly what I've described, except that I may be confused about the watch's actions at each crystal position.

Even the guy in the watch shop at one of Kuala Lumpur's amazing shopping arcades was very excited about the watch and we flipped when he demonstrated it! :shock:

I've just heard of that model , it's called the T-touch. Kind of like a watch and touch screen computer in one. One of the functions was a compass...
