Give us your best or worst shot

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.


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.


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'd like to order a pizza to go with no anchovies.
No anchovies? --- you've got the wrong man. I spell my name "Danger".

How did you let any of those go? They all would be keepers in my collection. Nice photos too, especially the Swatch and Hammy shots.
