My current love is for Omega. I've got a growing collection of watches now. I'll have to photograph a few more. This is one of three Omega's

If someone has info on this model I'd like to hear about it, I haven't seen one like it. It's a Automatic De ville, I've seen ones similar but they don't have a second hand. I have a feeling this is circa 1970's

Hairy wrist and a fairly petite Seiko SUG089K1 - thought it was a mid-size diver but turns out to be a tiny ladies diver. Still, its automatic + hand-wind, the engineering inside must be impressively compact. Nice evolution from the 4205.

From the other end of the price range. :) What a beatiful watch movement.

Do I need to use a Polarized filter to improve the contrast through the crystal?

New acquisition - a classic Seiko Bellmatic. Was actually caught off guard when I set the alarm and it actually rang. Like a real live alarm clock bell and not a synthesised beep. Awesome.

Solid copper torch. Solid brass fountain pen. Solid unpolished raw steel.

The watch was one of three Chinese forum* project watches on WUS. This design was inspired by watches worn by the Tokkotai (Kamikaze pilots) of the Japanese Imperial Navy* during WW2. All three designs use the same auto movement with three days power reserve and the same case, just different dials and finishes.

I've waited close to eighteen month; from registering, to the endless voting on design decisions, and flip flopping between this and the other design (WW1 trench "Classic" dial), to finally having a watch on my wrist. Yes, the stock strap has to go. I'm going to replace it with leather, either German flieger style or something custom made in Poland.

GM1, 15mm.

*In times when people destroy statues they disagree with, it feels good to wear something manufactured by old enemies.

There's a full walkthrough of the creation of this image here:
Using non IGBT lights to freeze action

Really want to try getting into watch photography to match my watch obsession but man is it ever difficult! Lighting w/ the crystal reflection is the most difficult part I think.

Taken with E-M10.3 + Oly 12-40mm PRO

Any feedback?
