    FE8778DA-010B-44DE-B84B-0A95DD13BACC.jpeg It’s not a watch, but I figure it’s enough like a watch to include it. Bought it from a market stall. It’s accurate and everything works, apart from the hands seem a little loose. Need to get it serviced but no idea where to go.

    You’d think … but experience suggests not.

    I never touch watches, too small and my hands and eyes aren't what they used to be but travel clocks are a bit of a dodle so long as it's only a clean and lubricate.
    I did this one a few weeks ago.
    Mine says hello a brother from a different mother.

    Accutron 261 reissue

    C7033109-5E81-46AB-8FFC-177D655FFB1F.jpeg

    Appears closer to original 1971 release on the outside

    But no tuning fork inside, a Sellita SW200 instead, at least it’ll be easier to service in future.

    Maybe I’ll find an original someday, I’d bet that 14k model is hard to find . . .

    Bought this last night at auction and it will be my third similarly themed and dated Citizen XXX Tiger watch, all with beautiful blue dials.

    Stainless Steel and typically very lustrous dials this will look stunning after a service, new glass and a cleaned case.

    Seller pics.

    It's big, it's ridiculous, and looks absurd on a NATO. But, I'm having fun.

    This is Heuer #2 for me. Now, I just need to get a windfall so I can add an Autavia GMT to round out this funky mini-collection.
