Lured yet another friend into the world of horology, this time with a Seiko Alpinist SARB017. Made for the Yamaotoko, a term used to describe a type of man known in Japan as “mountain man”. . ."The Yamaotoko spends weekends and holidays climbing many mountains in Japan with the sole purpose of conquering as many peaks of the famous Japanese Alps, both the southern and northern ranges. To this end, a dependable climbing gear is crucial and Seiko Alpinist aims to fulfill two key requirements namely, accurate timekeeping and the ability to locate points of the compass manually without the use of a magnetic compass" - WristReview ⌚: @hsiangster
#speedytuesday featuring one of my favourite limited edition speedies, the Gemini IV. Only 2005 pieces were made to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Ed White's historic space walk in 1965. Definitely a cool piece for speedy collectors with that unmistakable blue dial. . ⌚: Boggy (PWC) .
Probably the most iconic piece of the Saxon brand with a dial design now considered classic, the ALS Lange 1 confused many with its strange layout when it was first unveiled as recent as two decades back. Funny how times change. . ⌚ belongs to @kwokkinfei .
Been posting lots of blue, so here is some red for a change. The Manufacture Royale 1770 voltige with a red Satin sunray finish on its dial. Fantastic details evident all the way up to the levitating balance wheel. What a stunner! . ⌚ belongs to @watchinery .
The polished white gold poire hands of the Glashutte Senator Chronometer catches light easily, and in this case takes on a nice golden shade, contrasting against the deep blue shade of the dial. In addition, the railroad chapter ring, the indexes and numerals are all engraved and galvanised in silver. .
