Had a meal with the local brand manager of Hamilton and she brought me the prototype Hamilton 2012 Limited Edition Khaki Navy Pioneer. Photographed the watch at the restaurant itself - trying out the new 5D Mark 3 with 100L. I have not published any of the images yet but thought this one is worth sharing on this thread - especially with the Americans who can associate with the Hamilton brand - which was once wholly American brand before it became Swiss.

I took this shot of my Omega the other day, with the rented 400mm f/5.6L. My daughter looked at it and said "the bokeh is stealing my soul". NOt sure what that means, exactly, but she did seem to like the shot:

Oh, man, I owned that very watch. I gave it to my brother for his 50th birthday back in 2009.

I wear a Planet Ocean now, which is my grail...


It wouldn't happen to be the blue PO liquidmetal would it? I really like the way those stand out.

Bronze or brass cased watches are relative rare even though not new. They have been around for some years but until recently, they had not caught on. This is a collage of a very little known brand from New Zealand.

(EDITED THE IMAGE to put in a link instead to comply with forum rules on size. Completely overlooked it earlier)

All luxury watches have gone through a process of inflation of their retail prices. It is to meet up with the demand with the current supply. Cash flushed economies like China caused much of the problems of price hikes.

Also, to an extent - Richemont Group that owns IWC (like all luxury groups) have the policy of increasing their prices annually. Prices will continue to rise as demand has not let up. It will do so until the demand for luxury watches level out.

this thread makes me want to do two things: go shoot my watches & go buy some more watches :lol:


It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.

anyone ever hear of seagull watches?
http://usseagull.com/i​ndex.aspexternal link

they look pretty sweet, though i know they aren't catered to the upper level watches as featured by canonised.

other watches that i've been looking at
-bulova automatic: http://www.amazon.com ...-Exhibition/dp/B0018AJI​P4external link
-skagen: actually have one in the mail since i love the idea of a slim profile watch. (i'll post picts when it arrives)
-suunto vector
-casio pathfinder
-citizen eco-drive (eli manning sponsored): not a watch that i plan on purchasing right now, but maybe in the distant future.

any other recommendations would be appreciated!
