Long Live the King (Diver)!

26/10/2020 3:17 pm Long Live the King (Diver)! I’m generally drawn to watches that are unique and tell a story. For these reasons, I collect mostly vintage watches. I do have a few modern pieces but even those carry forward vintage cues. I picked up my Weekly Auto Orient King Diver in August to mark five years with my company. Orient recently turned […] The post Long Live the King (Diver)! appeared first on FIFTH WRIST. FIFTH WRIST

Is it a dive watch? a dress watch? a sports watch? No. It’s a Panerai Radiomir

25/10/2020 8:13 am Is it a dive watch? a dress watch? a sports watch? No. It’s a Panerai Radiomir Sometimes you end up falling in love with someone you used to shun, ignore or even hate. It’s like that girl in your class at the start of high school, that you barely even notice and sometimes make fun of with your pals. She has friends, a boyfriend too maybe, but she is just not […] The post Is it a dive watch? a dress watch? a sports watch? No. It’s…

A G-Shock that isn’t a G-Shock

24/10/2020 1:57 pm A G-Shock that isn’t a G-Shock I’ll be completely honest with you – this is a watch that I don’t pay much attention too. It’s not a watch that I take photos of frequently either – in fact, I struggled to find a pic with it on my wrist – that’s why I’ve put a candid shot of me taken by […] The post A G-Shock that isn’t a G-Shock appeared first on FIFTH WRIST.

Simple but effective – My Ochs und Junior

23/10/2020 8:58 am Simple but effective – My Ochs und Junior Ever since seeing another gentleman of the watch world, OuJ, I have always been intrigued. I like simple watches, mostly three handers so when I saw how the date displayed, I knew that to me it was a special watch. No logo, no numbers, no written text anywhere to be found on OuJ watches. They […] The post Simple but effective – My Ochs und Junior appeared first on FIFTH WRIST. FIFTH WRIST

The Enicar Super Dive That Never Sailed

19/10/2020 3:24 pm The Enicar Super Dive That Never Sailed After reviewing Christopher Ward’s C65 I figured that a proper super compressor review was due from my favorite vintage brand. As you may or may not know I’m a huge Enicar fan, most of my vintage collection are Enicar’s. One thing I discovered about the small community of collectors is that most are very approachable […] The post The Enicar Super Dive That Never Sailed appeared first on FIFTH WRIST. FIFTH WRIST

I want a new drug. 💊

18/10/2020 11:55 am I want a new drug. 💊 After nearly seven months of being cooped up due to a global pandemic, I’ve come down with a strange new symptom of my watch-addiction madness. I have now acquired an inexplicable predilection for obscure vintage store-brand watches. It can lead to any and all of the following complications: 1) All-night sessions researching obscure vintage store-brand […] The post I want a new drug. 💊 appeared first on FIFTH WRIST. FIFTH WRIST

The Riddle of the Rocketeer

17/10/2020 1:24 pm The Riddle of the Rocketeer I love a good mystery. In my modest collection, this Lanco Rocketeer from the late 50s is exactly that. The gold-plated case measures 35mm but the 44mm lug to lug and 19mm lug width make it wear larger than its case size would suggest. The case is both attractive with a fine coin edge bezel […] The post The Riddle of the Rocketeer appeared first on FIFTH WRIST. FIFTH WRIST
