    I am a serial Bellmatic owner - one of the best buys in the vintage watch world, IMO.

    +1 on bell-matics, great watches.

    Trying to limit myself to 4005s, or it could get expensive! Though a 18k JLC is pretty high on the wish list.

    Instead of an alarm to hear, an alarm to “feel” while underwater:

    7BE0D978-3BA9-49B8-AAF4-8218554437F2.jpeg

    Far less economical and for the same reasons not owned by me (photo from here) - but maybe this post will draw out a member with one?

    if so, a presumptive “dibs”

    I still want an example of a Helvitia in the watch menagerie here. It's just that the ones seen on Ebay are chrome plated rather than stainless steel and so beat to a pulp that I haven't availed myself of obtaining one yet.

    1950s and 60s autos often have all stainless cases.

    Here is one of my favourites
