Nice choice Kasper. :-)

It must of been a short break if you only took 3 watches, I always take a different one for every day.

:scratch: The watch on the far left looks as if it would raise some eyebrows with the airport TSA screeners here in the USA.
Is that a rechargeable model?

As for myself, I’m always a bit leery of leaving valuables in my hotel room, so I generally travel with just one watch.

Last week I attended a large graduation party for my friend’s daughter and took along the world’s first (to the best of my knowledge) wrist command LED watch discussed here. Only one other person (a career electrical engineer) had ever heard of a mercury switch, and everyone thought the vintage dot display looked cool.
Next time I think I’ll wear something ‘70s space-age.

Happy collecting and wearing!

Last decent holiday I had we hired a pirate ship and raided various secret coves along the south Portugal coast. Not much to pillage though . . its all gone !

I wore a '75 Seiko 0634 most days and a '72 Hamilton Dot matrix LED by night ;-)

8-) Nice photos! The Canary Islands also are a great vacation destination.

Would that be a Frontier Semiconductor or a Pulsar module in your ’72 Hamilton? I just love the early dot displays.

Cheers!

I went on vacation, and brought my Synchronar to the races @ Grangē track in AppleVally California. I didn't place because someone wrecked into me, ripping 4 spokes from my rear tire during the last race.
Here's a link to my YouTube videos http://m.youtube.com/channel/UCRRjlR4WUIhozZGfcoNfm7Q there's some crash footage ;-)

Hopefully you weren’t injured during the spill.

Back in ‘79/’80 I was heavily into the trendy moped craze of the day. My mopeds would do about 45 MPH once the engine had broken in and I had removed the governor. My very first moped came sans oil pump, requiring that I mix the synthetic oil with the fuel manually. This was a bit of a chore after a while, so I sold it and upgraded to a full featured General 5 Star model:

Here in the northeast, we would race down in the subterranean swimming pool lockers that were closed during the winter months – such a blast! :mrgreen:

Hi sorry about the rubbish photo, but this made me think and the only watch I have always taken
on my hols is my P2 wearer.
The others (normally 4 or 5) are chosen to be of a match to the type of holiday I'm taking.
Now what will I be taking to Vegas in June (apart from my P2)
Maybe my Zeon Jackpot ???

Anyway here's the rubbish shot of the one's I took on the Cruise last month.....
