    True. If you want to hear a 'no' just ask to buy the Centenary or Conquest. :D

    Thanks Adam! 33mm, but it is a fairly substantial case, and wears a touch larger.

    I like those little Mido's. But this one is even littler... maybe 31 mm... so I've ceded it to my daughter. She says she'll take all my too-dainty men's watches. :)

    Nice piece, thankfully it's an auto. If your daughter is anything like mine winding a watch is just something they do not do ::confused2::

    It's not just an automatic, it's a super-automatic. ;)

    Well "Luxe" and "Super-" are the sort of compensation mechanisms a 31 mm watch will employ.

    Well,
    Horological fasting is more difficult than I thought. I only can hold for 3 months from my intended 6 months.
    .....and these two are the reason why.......

    Speedmaster Mark 3 Caliber 1040 in nice condition

    Pink gold Connie Grand Luxe OT 2930 Caliber 505. Wrong second hand and crown, but otherwise a very nice lightly polished specimen.

    I found them locally from a friend info, drive to his home about 150 km away and once see these two beauties ::love:: (especially the pink GL) I knew I had to bring them home. Yesterday they happily joined my collection ::jumpy::.

    So forgive my weak heart that could not resist this temptation and stick with my horological fasting resolution ::shy:: .

    Okay, technically I didn't buy this today - but I received it.

    Yes, it has some goo on the dial. However, it's in working order and I didn't have a stainless JLC in the box. This gives me the missing stainless case to go with a 14ct yellow gold LC Powermatic, an 18ct red gold JLC, and 18ct yellow gold JLC. Plus, after seeing THIS POST I wanted to see if Steve was up for a challenge. (He is, and I'll do a Before & After thread.)

    So until I decide to sell the 14ct Memovox I can go double barrel JLC alarm watch! :p

    No, it's stil there. You can see it in the photos of the dial, and he does say that it's hidden once the watch is assembled.

    :p I just don't like the way they sit on my wrist. I appreciate the watch and it's history though.

    A 1994 JLC catalog and pricelist popped up on the 'Bay. Bought it just because I wanted a good look at a correct version of this watch:

    I think '94 was the year they issued this, and might be the only year they made them. Actually, I want to see some of the Reversos available back then too.

    It's also in the 1991 catalogue Dennis, on pages 80-81 (see price list below in £stg).

    Is your catalogue a 93/94 or a 94/95 ? If it's 94/95 then I'm calling dibs !

    Must not be the model I was thinking of then.

    I'll let you know when it arrives.
