The more I learn about watches, the more I realize that inspiration to innovate or to create something esthetically different can come from anywhere. Below is a gallery of a Raketa Copernicus from the 80s I purchased in (supposedly) NOS condition a few months ago. I don’t think that the seconds hand is original and… Continue reading Raketa Copernicus
For many years, horology was considered one of the most precise and difficult branches of engineering. Reliability, scale and innovation are just the top of an iceberg for companies wanting to produce reliable and fashionable watches with automatic movements. Lots of smaller brands aren’t capable of producing their own parts and in most cases decide… Continue reading Wars from Błonie
A few weeks ago I was able to find an old Seiko 5 Actus from May 1976. In general, buying watches on eBay can be tricky and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone looking for their first watch or just starting with their new collection. However, if you’re patient and know what to look for,… Continue reading Dressy Seiko 5 Actus

On the other hand, it… Continue reading Seiko Spirit SCVE005
I got this watch with the idea of opening it and taking a look at the movement. That will happen in a few weeks once I have my watch tools with me, but for now, I just did a quick photoshoot. I wish I knew how to find out the year the watch was made.… Continue reading A turquoise Poljot from the 80’s
