WURW Friday, March 9, 2018

Postby Artman » March 8th 2018 7:22pm

This post was inspired by our esteemed member North Country who recently completed an epic week of Pulsar watches. For your viewing pleasure I give to you....
MY WEEK OF FASHION WATCHES!!

And for those who may be offended by such "ahem" mediocrity of horology, please avert your eyes now. You have been warned!

In today's episode, I present to you my favorite guilty pleasure in my humble collection, the stylish Caravelle 43B139. This is a handsome 40mm chrono which originally came in a nice steel bracelet...

...but with most fashion watches, this beauty goes well with all kinds of shoes including this manly nato...
Image
Not only is this Bully Jr. versatile, this is the most traveled watch that I own. It has been a worthy travel companion to the local beaches, in traffic in Manila, in the subways of Korea and to Tokyo, over looking the world famous Shibuya Crossing.
Image
So despite being scorned by most serious collectors, why do I even bother with fashion watches?
Image
Well, because I can and they just look so dayam good with what I wear! Thanks for watching.

HOORAY for ARTY!! I love fashion watches, and yes, they're something of a guilty pleasure for The Dead Guy, as well. Anyhow, I'm looking forward to seeing the full week, starring His Artiness!!

(And I now see what you meant about travel photo's with watches! I get it now, and it looks like a lot of fun...so you've convinced me, Artery. I'm not much good with mixing wartches into a shot like you did above, but I'll try it and see what I can come up whiff..)

Going for the very unusual this last-day-of-the-workweek, a vintage Wostok (later Vostok, or, for the purist, "Boctok") piece from the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, or USSR. It's powered by a Russian-built mechanical/hand-wind movement, and mounted in a stainless steel case. The original strap was black alligator, but that one went the way of the Yugo some time ago. I've replaced it with a high-gloss 'gator strap that really seems to fit its personality, and helps to make the whole package a wonderful addition to my modest little collection of vintage watches. My favorite feature, though, is its very rare and unusual dial face, which is made up of a delicate & compelling floral pattern pressed into the dial's unknown material (probably leather, according to my watchmaker). My next-favorite facet of this beautiful watch is the notation at the six o'clock position: "Made in USSR." 8)

The dial on that Russian is ultra cool! I've never seen anything like that.

Arty, I am glad to inspire you, and look forward to the rest of the week of fashion. Mort, that dial is way cool.

For today some moon landing from Bulova.

I should have bought that moon watch Foggy was selling on WL. Too many watches that I want. Not enough cash!
