This comment doesn't have the least thing to do with watch collecting.I
could think of no other way to ask this question.

Have you seen one of the best films supported by the Netherlands Film
Commission, "Secrets of war"?

Kinda a sequel to "The Diary of Anne Frank". Dutch kids Tuur and the
cute little Dutch girl Maajerit Hollerman. She's hiding a small pig in her
gramps barn.Tuur's parents are hiding a downed RAF pilot. His dad, mon
and older brother are members of the Dutch Underground!!!

Oorlogsgeheimen? I know it only by name. To be perfectly honest, I'm not a big fan of Dutch acting (with a few exceptions). The delivery is often woody and all too memorised. Dutch TV dramas are sometimes atrocious. But that's probably because I'm Dutch so I can catch everything down to the littlest details (that are often missing ).

Here’s my modest mini herd. Leather watch cases by Bey Berk, winders by Heiden and suede watch roll by Hide & Drink. I’ve slowed my impulse collecting cause I only have 4 more spots in my back up case. I cannot recommend Hide & Drinks leather goods enough! I have the watch roll and a belt and they’re both fantastic. It’s a vertically integrated company in Antigua, Guatemala and they donate portion of profits to educational programs.

From what I can make out, that bunch does not look too modest. There's more to a collection than mere numbers

I have this feeling you may have some pretty interesting pieces as well, Steve.

I particularly like that one piece, the 7005-8052 I believe it is.

That sounds like an encouragement to post.
I have 5 watches away for servicing at the moment which includes one for a relume - all in the UK. That's a quarter of my bunch.

No excuses, I'll take a few pics and post up tomorrow

Are you aware of any watch producers in the Netherlands?
Son lives in Finland and they have only one producer.
The Suunto. Great watch. Mediochre resin strap. Shelf life
is less than a year.

This is the state of my rotation at the moment fourteen pieces, one for each day and one for each evening. I did try to stick to a magnificent seven but as we all know it is almost impossible for a freek.
I do have one more which is a 1960s Omega Speedmaster mark 1 which needs some serious TLC a repair and a service. My Dad gave me it years ago and he was not very careful with it to say the least it is in a bit of a state. When I have the funds I would love to bring this hand winding Speedy back to life and love.
I really dare not buy a bigger watch case at the moment as I hate to see empty slots. I am hoping to enjoy the watches that I have as I love my rotation as it stands, I am trying not to purchase any in 2019. I am doing great thus far but I tried this last year and I purchased twelve, let's see how it goes...

Come on peeps this is a great thread let us see your rotation, please don't be shy, some top notch rotations on here already.
It is time for a show and tell...

Impressive assembly there Gary. To say you like Isofranes would be somewhat of an understatement ... and that Citizen ED is just the beast

Thank you, very happy as it stands for the moment. Yes I absolutely love the Isofrane straps, I do swap and change between them and bracelets. I have tried lots of different rubber straps but these are my favourite more breathable and much more comfortable for me.
They are not original Isofrane by the way I have a mixture of Borealis and Obris Morgan, I cannot justify the price of an Isofrane for what is essentially just a rubber strap, but in all honesty I may try an Isofrane just to see how they compare. My Chris Ward looks like an ideal candidate for the trial. Cheers...

Within the dive watch category, you've got quite a variety in style and color as well as in case shape, case material, etc. Diversity in divers, put another way.
