Rediscovery

Post by foghorn » December 11th 2017, 9:19am

I was going through my ,soon to be dead, Photbucket account (moving stuff to imgur) and found some old shots that I consider some of my favorites. Some go way back to the original BDWF days. None of these watches are still in my possession . (dammit!!))




I bought this Orient as a "passaround" watch to be passed amongst the owners group at BDWF (at that time myself, Nac, Furdog,Natgas,Raiderfan,and DX I believe) It's final stop was the founder of BDWF Don Ruch, who we bought the place from) Interesting to note that the picture pre-dates the appearance of Michael Davis on the scene and the text is either an omen or coincidence.

This Swatch "Body and Soul" is still in production. Cool watch. I thikl I sold this over 15 years ago. I always liked the pic.


Image




I should have kept this one too. The only "spot on" watch I ever owned. Simply never wavered until it started to run down. I kept with the Jazzmaster theme by using a contact sheet (any photogs remember them?) from an Art farmer show that I photographed in Boston.



Image



This Max Bill was a beautiful watch and I bought it when they were pretty reasonably priced. A little too classy for me back then.

Lastly is this older version of the Glycine Combat taken along with a couple of my dads medals from WWII (the big one) and his dogtag. Interesting note on this pic is that it was in a contest at BDWF and beat out some guy named Skelton who fancied himself quite the cameraman) for first place.

That is all.

I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

Wow. You flippers; those last three are pretty boss. I mean, really nice. You do have a touch with the lens as well. Damn.
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster
