The Tudor Black Bay is a fairly new addition, which I got in a trade a couple of weeks back for a Grand Seiko hi beat gmt.

From time to time I buy/sell/trade watches as a hobby
Damn, those all look amazing! Someday I will have a decent watch.

Based on some peoples comments that the M2 interior is inferior...I have been looking on eBay for several old Timex, Swatch and Casio calculator watches to fit the interior.

I dont see the watches you fancy guys are touting as a proper fit for this budget BMW.

I got these three 'disposables'. As noted before: no 'time pieces' but 'watches': no stress about scratches, damage or loss.

I've never been a watch "collector" but recently I find myself being sucked down this watch collector rabbit hole!

Laco and Stowa watches along with ORIS are my weakness.
