Your pen matched to your watch

I know we all have great pens and I'm pretty sure we all have a watch or two so let's start a thread matching your favorites!

Seiko SARB017 Alpinist to an Omas Rosewood Milord.

That's a good match Sir! Speaking of Bulova and Jim's post, I have my grandfathers early 60's bulova that I need to match up to a pen. Gotta get on this asap!

The watch is from 1954 and that pen was from about the same period, certainly prior to 1959. It is a Montblanc 144.

How do you like the navitimer for the long haul? I have one on my list. Also on my list is an Omega speedy. You seem to be a few watches ahead of me

If I wear it daily or remember to keep it wound it is great. Wears too big to go with a suit or nice shirt though. My biggest issue is the lack of a quick set date, so if you let it die for say 3 weeks and want to wear it, you will have a blister on your finger to get it to the proper date. Otherwise it's a nice watch with a great heritage. It's really the only Breitling that I have any love for.

While the speedy needs winding every 3 days if you wear it, it is easier to wind and is more versatile with various cuffs. I wear it as often as I do my Submariner.

I've been blessed in my adult life thus far. As a kid I always wanted a speedy cause that's what the astronauts wore, a Navitimer cause that's what Lindberg wore (I grew up wanting to be an aerospace engineer,) and a Submariner cause that's what James Bond wore. I was sure as a kid that I would never have any of the 3 but I worked hard and got all 3 before I turned 31.

If you have any questions about either let me know! Always happy to oblige.

John
