    View attachment 359553


    My daughter is a big TMNT fan and has meet all 4 of the original voice actors from the 1987 cartoon and Kevin Eastman, the creator.

    In fact, last Wednesday we went to Rob Paulsen's book signing and there was a lot of other voice actors there to support Rob.

    She has a lot of TMNT stuff in here room.

    Hence the name.

    What a lovely collection.

    I collect Speedies as well as other makes/models, they are so appealing and of course historically interesting.

    Here's my site showing my Speedies. :)

    I also collect pre war cigarette cards of movie starlets.

    Probably have well over a thousand.

    This sort of thing....

    Ha! I KNEW there had to be other watch nuts on this forum!! Thanks for the kind words.

    Great watches! I've owned many varieties of Speedmasters as well over the years. Prices lately have made Speedmaster collecting difficult, or very profitable depending on how early you got in.

    I have two websites, one devoted to all the cal. 1040s www.calibre1040.com and one devoted specifically to the Speedmaster 125 www.speedmaster125.com which I collaborated with the authors of Moonwatch Only on...

    There's a lengthy wristwatch thread buried in Sidewbinders somewhere. Good luck finding it though. I can't tell you how long I've wanted an Eco-Drive, a whole bunch of years. Maybe I'll sell one of my axes to fund one, or offer one for trade.

    Do you recall who started that wristwatch thread? Haven't seen that one bumped up for a couple of years. I'm thinking it may have been @Polarbear

    I was going to start collecting books, but I already had one, so I didn’t see the point of having another.

    I think you are probably right re @Polarbear.

    He was looking for a leather strap for a Seiko he had and I sent him a new one for free.

    He was delighted and said he would send me some plectrums.

    Never got them though. :(

    That’s as might well be, but I’m concerned to note that you’re cleaning person has, yet again, left the ladder out!

    I have often admired your quaint little home, but do feel that some of your staff fails to take their responsibility seriously.

    Aye, he was a wee lad then still learning the ways of the world. Much harder to take the strap to them now unlike times gone by. :p In any case, I'm in a bit of a moving the domicile phase right now & don't have time to search. I've had the better luck finding older threads when I know who started them. I was hoping to find it for our brother @Speedmaster

    I had a digital watch when they first came out, then a Seiko something. It looked cool but I eventually stopped wearing one.

    Same here.

    The LED's where you had to push the button to read the time a al la Kojak - and the batteries lasted around five minutes?

    I can't ever imagine not wearing a watch.

    I hate wearing jewelry, and when I realized clocks are everywhere, I realized I didn't need one. On my computer, on my phone, in my car, on my microwave, one on my desk. Jeez! I can't not know what time it is!

    I was riding the bus once and some guys asked me that, and right then, a big giant clock went by. Good timing.

    How am I going to operate my digital watch now?”— Arthur Dent

    A digital watch was a piece of technology used as a timepiece. It was considered "amazingly primitive"but the humans of Earth considered it to be a pretty neat idea. Arthur Dent himself owned a digital watch and seemed to consider it useful.
