    :D
    Next week, when the last buckle arrives, I have to prepare a new picture of my Modular collection after the latest additions: a brand new digital module (to keep it as a spare module), and 8 more buckles (4 titanium, 4 black ceramic) so that all straps will have their own buckle ::screwloose:: :D

    I'm sorry to have kept you waiting so long.

    I pulled Luxury box out of my warehouse today and took a picture.

    It's what @Albert-AMG wanted to see.

    Yes, but the wait was worth it! ;) Thanks for sharing! :)

    The Luxury box is amazing, and having the all three existing mechanical modules (Calibre 5, Calibre 16, and Heuer 02 Tourbillon) in your Modular collection is really great! :) Congratulations again! :thumbsup:

    And it’s nice to see the Red Bull Racing Special Edition strap there... not easy to find either ;)

    So you are still on the hunt for the red rubber strap with logo, right?

    Yes, from the BMC cycling team! It’s also missing in my Modular collection. I found the yellow rubber strap with logos from the BMC team, but not the red one. I guess it’s also very difficult to find...

    Let me check with the BMC racer i bought mine from to see if he knows anyone that would want to part from it. It's a long shot but you never know...

    I spotted the US-only orange with logo on eBay a few days ago and was going to flag it to you but alas it disappeared when I went back to find it again. I'll continue to keep an eye out.

    Thank you!! :) :thumbsup:

    I’m looking for this US-only orange with logo, but probably it doesn’t appear in my eBay app searcher if the seller doesn’t inform he can send it to Europe :unsure:

    Great collection. Nice to see you have some spare smartwatch heads also to extend the usage of your collection before going fully mechanical. I think if looked after and charged biannually the spare heads could see you though 10 years. I recommend anyone to pick up a few head only deals on eBay when you still can. Ok I’ve gone a bit overboard with 8. That reminds me I have my watch therapy session for compulsion buying this afternoon

    Thanks! :)
    Yes, it’s a good idea to buy one (or more :D) of these smartwatch head only that we can find for sale, just to swap them if our current one has battery or screen problems (it’s cheaper than repairing it, or than buying a complete watch).

    I found on eBay a brand new smartwatch head only (titanium case with black ceramic bezel) still with the blue stickers, and I keep it stored -with battery charged at 80%- as a spare head unit. I’m using the other three smartwatch heads (another titanium case with black ceramic bezel, the full black titanium/ceramic Kingsman case, and the Alec Monopoly titanium case with silver steel bezel), so I hope to enjoy the collection -not only with the mechanical modules- during many years :thumbsup:

    8 heads? :eek: Not bad! :D ;)

    Please post pictures here of your Modular collection, including the 8 heads! :) :thumbsup:

    Sure, when I find time I want to do that. My long term aim however is when the module fails I want to attempt to open it and try to build my own watch with a dial and automatic movement that fits inside. Ambitious maybe, but I’d like to try. I’d then end up with 8 automatic watch heads. I won’t know if it’s possible until the first head fails however.

    That’s an interesting project :) You could name it #connectingtoeternity ;)
    If you want to put a chonograph movement inside, then you will need to make two extra holes for the chrono pushers... on a titanium case. Not easy but challenging :thumbsup:

    Think it’s safer to stick to non chronographs here. You would need good tooling to make the extra holes look professional. There are many faces for 2824 based watches , try to stick with tag theme but you could put any make in of the right dial size, but who knows it’s possible to have the first tag, rolex and omega modular watch. Worth a try in my book when the modular heads die, can’t lose anything. I prefer the #PhoenixInfinity range, the watch that rises from the ashes to be reborn , if anyone has already got a dead module head they want to sell let me know, I obviously don’t want to operate on a living watch
