    After promising not to buy any more watches before Easter, I got drunk with friends and bought this on eBay.

    It's a one owner, non running watch - have ordered a correct battery, will pop it in when it arrives and see if it hums to life.

    Then off to Paul at Electric Watches once his back log is clear.

    Check out the wrist cheese... and the service numbers scratched into the lugs... could be another for the STS refinish treatment.

    First impressions: Love the 1970's styling, and this thing is really heavy.

    No... and to be fair she doesn't seems to be able to tell one watch from another. ;)

    This one was at least on my watch list... and I bought it within the price bracket that I'd set for myself... I didn't do anything too stupid. :D

    There are no words...
