This is the first nice watch I've purchased. I have used a Timex and a Skagen for about 15 years, but always wanted to get myself a nice mechanical watch. I finally did it a few weeks ago and today I took some proper photos (still not great).

Meistersinger Scrypto Automatik three-hand, 43 mm diameter. The automatic movement is an ETA 2824-2. Meistersinger are better known for the single-hand watches they make. But they all have the same characteristically minimalist, instrument guage-like design with the double digit arabic numerals. Enjoy...

The single hand with the tan face is on my short list of someday purchases.

Thanks! The dial simplicity was what really got to me, though I kept going back and forth between this one and a Stowa Marine Original... maybe next year.... I just love the mechanical movements, I've had one other mechanical watch, a WWI-era transitional, also a very clean simple dial. But it's too small for me, so my wife claimed it recently (after it had sat in a drawer for 12 years!). I just wound it up and it runs perfectly. It was made in 1915. Very cool. Here it is:

Hello there, I hope you enjoy your new watch and it is every bit as good as you hoped it would be. It's not for me I'm afraid but watches are a VERY personel thing arn't they? :001_smile I must say the Elgin watch is lovely and the fact it works as good as new is a testement to it's great design and build quality. I must also congratulate you on the superb photographs, dark room worthy :thumbup:

I am a big fan of mechanical watches too. The intricacies of these watches is truly amazing. Most are well built and will last a lifetime. Enjoy it in good health.

Great purchase. You are a man of taste. My advice for any horolophile out there is, buy German. My current object of fantasy is this
