Icon17 Traveller's Pictorials

A Pictorial is my own take of a "first impressions" of a watch.

While I'm by no means an expert, I am very passionate about my watches. I try to get to know everything about them. I love getting into the minute details. It's therefore convenient that I also enjoy photography, making it a pleasure for me to capture all those awesome details. Just as importantly, I enjoy sharing what I've learned and captured with fellow WIS like yourselves!

Since my Pictorials are scattered among the various sub-forums and over roughly eight years of posting here, I thought I'd put together a list. Maybe one of my watches is on your wrist or short-list or even a grail, in which case... I hope I can add to your enjoyment / excitement / experience with my own!

A case study...
...38-39.7-41-42mm stack ...of awesomeness!

Of course it takes more than the diameter to really appreciate the "perceived" size with dial, bezel and lug2lug all adding to the final impression.
