This is where I sit and read

My favorite chair. I sit and read books. Similar model of chair when I was in junior high school many years ago. I feel like entering a time tunnel. When I sit, I remember the past. Every precious time that I had. People may come and go. "I know I never stop to think about them," the Beatles says in "In My Life".


This is rare brand, "Envoy", manual winding, blue dial. It ticks laudly. 36mm size, ca. 1970

Again, Seiko Bullhead Black Dial

I still collect Seiko Bullhead , especially if I find it in a very good condition. Last week I found a Seiko Bullhead with affordable price (fair price). Its dial and casing are not the best that I have ever found. I still have another two Bullheads which are much better (dial and casing), but this time its movement is the best. Its power reserve is very good, its acuracy is very good, even when its chronograph is on. Over all, its performance is really good. I believe many collectors here have Bullheads, but not sure about the movement.

Always "De Luxe"

Why we always find the word "De Luxe" in vintage things? What does "De Luxe" stand for? We can find in old cars, old TVs, old radios, etc. I remember: "De Luxe"; "Transistor" or "Solid State" on TVs and radios. Let me show you "Cyma De Luxe" and "Olma De Luxe". I guess thay were released in 1930s or even older. Cyma De Luxe is made of gold 14 k, square (look at its movement! Very old!). I have no idea about Olma De Luxe, is it a pocket watch or what? I would appreciate if you have any information.

Maybe I should have a special blog on Constellation

I am thinking of creating a new blog specialised in Omega Constellation. These are cal 561 (gold capped top), sexy lugs, and cal 564 (with bracelet, gold capped top). Look at the dial of the 564 (C shape), it is textured white satin dial, black steel hands, very good condition. It is harder to find a 564 with bracelet like this. I believe Constellation is Omega's masterpiece in 1950s.

Omega black dial bumper movement, subsecond, 10k gold filled, good condition

Black dial is rare, bumper movement and subsecond is rarer, 10k gold filled case is the rarest. Good condition is the rarest of the rarest.
