The old boy bought one of those when he was in Japan (73-74ish?). No idea what happened to it.

how many have ya got now?do your wear all of them or like me do some sleep in a drawer?


I'm not a collector. I have 3 watches. An Animal 83 for work, the Aquaracer for out and about, and the Seiko for W&F. May get a Seamaster or a Daytona some day, but it's not a priority (thankfully. damned bikes are enough problems as it is).

Not a collection more an accumulation. Thinks that's most of them. Lots of seiko and rotary, couple of tissot and Swiss army plus an omega seamaster I was bought new in 1990. I know there are another couple of waveceptors somewhere.

Only one watch here. I bought this Festina in 1994 with the money from my first summer holiday job. It's still my only watch and is worn every single day.
So far it has only required battery changes. The (original) strap is developing quite a bit of play. Not sure if I can have it fixed or if I'll need to order a new one.

They only made a limited run of these, so it would be collectible if it weren't for most collectors looking down on Festinas and saying they are fashion watches.

The only thing I would change to this watch is the font they used for the numbers. In the 90s that was okay, now it's really looking dated.

Think there's a WVA-430 wave ceptor there - I've got the same model, on the resin strap, and another multiband 6 wave ceptor (one from the Lineage range), and a solar, multiband 6, analog G-Shock, and an Edifice. I've also got about 3 or 4 Rotary watches, too, and several Seikos.

Dunno what I'm more shocked by... The hugeness of the OP's new watch or the fact that he's out Xmas shopping and it's still only August...
