Two watches which are not in my possession, but have yet a special meaning (see Notes below) and the first watch below started my Seiko Automatic collecting. I only had Seiko Quartz and Kinetics before. The SKX421 was my first Seiko Automatic 7S26 watch.

1) Philip's Watch
The Seiko 5 actually belongs to my son Philip who bought it in July 2001 here in Bangkok. This pictures are so memorable, because we spent half a day trying to get a sharp picture. Using daylight outside the house (hot!), using a tripod and the timer of the camera. The Digital IXUS 2.1 MegaPixel camera at first just would not focus at all. Those were the very tough beginnings of my watch photography and I am very glad, that I have such a patient son. He could not have inherited that from his father!

2) Alfred's Seiko Titanium Diver
Seeing Alfred's eyes glooming when first seeing this Titanium Diver I had to give it to him. I replaced this watch with the same watch but sporting an orange dial and a bracelet instead of the rubber strap. But since I missed the black face and the rubber strap, I also bought a black face stainless steel Military Diver. Actually two, one for Kritaya as well.

Watches that left my collection and went to friends:

My Seiko 5 "See Through" Asian Edition only
Went as a gift to a watch friend, he liked the Railroad style so much, so I let it go. And also interesting, giving away watches is almost as fun as getting new ones

SKX007K Wrist Shots 2004
Went to a watch friend in Summer 2007. The SKX419K is
better suited for my small wrist. While the SKX007K is a real classic,
 it was not very comfy to wear for me
