Frederique Constant Classic Worldtimer arrived today. Ironically I didn't have the world time setting figured when I took the pics, but I've got it now. Love it. It's my official 'brown' watch.

Very nice! How many watches do you have in your collection now ?
Four that I can put my hands on. I have 3-4 more I can't find...I think they are boxed up from the last move. The three in the sig are recent purchases. The older ones I can't find are not nearly as pricy but pretty nice; a Citizen, a Micky Mouse dress watch I got at Disneyworld in the 90s, and something 'Swiss' I got at JC Penny for something like 75% off...impulse buy but it's real good looking.

Sounds like a nice collection!

If I may interject with one thought... sometimes we like to buy many new watches at lower prices, but don't forget that for what one pays for three "mid-tier" watches, one could have an Omega Speedmaster or Seamaster 300. Just a thought...

Whoa, actually a watch like this could be considered a collection in
itself though tmoore ! 🥇🏆:D The company, or brand name alone
has to be just extraordinary to have on the wrist, and there with you
in your collection. But then the style with this amazing world time
model, as well as unforgettable look is THE best. o_O ..Honestly,
would just be staring at the dial, and not even care what time zone
it was. 😊However, knowing how to use it has to be a real blast !

Can imagine that brown is extraordinary there in person as well.
Because it looks like this hypnotic bronze on this end, and is really
gorgeous. ..What a pick-up ! A HUMUNGOUS congrats here to you !!!

Found the older ones...
Citizen Eco Drive, Mondaine, Disney Time Works, and Columbia (the sportswear company)

Sorry for the low caliber pic, but they're all pretty good looking. The Mondaine and Micky got a lot of wear. The Eco Drive and Columbia were gifts that came along when I wasn't as inclined to wear a watch.

Ooh neat, you found them huh?! :D(y)(y)

Was thinking it might be tough locating them again, but wow, you found
them right away ! 😮:cool: What's great is you already have a fantastic
little collection, and you cover the spectrum of styles too which is nice.
You can almost wear a different watch every day. Or can just really enjoy
one a time for weeks, and months at a time !

Am so glad you were able to find them, and thank you for showing them
to all of us like this !!!
