Got this last month. 5 weeks in service. Finally mine. 1978 GMT 1675 Mark 2 dial
Saffiano leather strap for my Snoops.
Just arrived: Geneve Dynamic "race track," my first "real" adult watch ever, purchased with my own blood, sweat, and tears.
Cal. 565, SN 30308294 (1969-70), ref. 166.039.
The hairy arm/wrist belongs to the seller. Mine is even hairier, darker, and older. Prowling for a bullseye.
This, as of yesterday
It arrived via UPS and we were just ready to go out.
The watch was supposedly coming on Friday.
I managed to get this Max Bill Handwind Sapphire Crystal with box and papers second hand (November 2022 purchase date) for 50% of MSRP.
On it's way!
These just arrived in today.
All Movements ticking.
I could not help it. Just purchased, not arrived yet. 3 bucks from goodwill plus another 16 bucks in shipping and handling. (Too bad they do not let one choose the shipper.)
For some reason they do not show the dial. What attracted me was the side view.
Supposed to be a monarch ladies watch. I have other monarchs. Will be interesting when this shows up.
I also noticed my next post will be #1000. I guess I have a passion for watches.
Just back from service and lens change my new to me Seapearl.
Case reference 314962
The case back inside date of 11 / 1957 puts this example as a very early example of the Supercompressor case for these watches, just one month into production.
Bought another watch this afternoon as an unintended consequence of visiting a thrift shop.
I think I paid less than the gold weight of the case for it so I guess I am coming out ahead on this one and a side benefit is that I quite like the watch as well .
After a service ( my Watchmaker will hate me) I will probably hit break even point.
Took a bit of a gamble on it as my wife wasn't as enthusiastic as me about it and I bought it in spite of her recommendation that I pass it by but as I said I paid under the gold weight and I can never resist a bargain.
Hafis ladies 9 CT with sub seconds, whats not to like, haven't even opened it yet to see what the movement is.
**Edit** opening it revealed a 15 Jewel incabloc movement which my Watchmaker is happy about.
Black dial Zenith circa 1964, caliber 120-T. My watchmaker installed a new crystal and relumed the hands.
Ming 22.01 Kyoto.
On a geometric theme, got this one coming.
Seller claims its 34 mm across, something I seriously doubt, 30 at best but more likely less.
I have had a few cal 1011 Connie’s before but they came and went to help fund a reverso. I missed the watch and decided to get my hands on another to keep this time. I managed to find this one in really good condition for $1000 aud or Aussie pesos.
I regulated it to 0.0 beat error and +2 secs a day from it being 0.4 and +28secs.
runs like a fresh and it’s minty crisp.
Love the tritium degradation into that lovely custard colour.
My first GMT watch!
Just bought this Junghans stopwatch!
