    IG seems to take many of the good photos that used to come here, so here goes...
    Two 145.012's from opposite ends of the condition scale.

    One day I hope to have two Speedmasters on either end of the condition spectrum, but for now it's these two Wittnauer 8023-241T's

    I admit that the 2 have charm even if I am always amazed and attracted by such an old mint watch.

    A pair of 105.012 with some considerable distance between them on the condition scale.
    On the left is a -66CB, on the right is a -64 which at one point graced the OP's collection.
    I love 'em both, but the lived-in one gets way more wrist time.

    Cheers,

    A late 1920s Longines that sat in a drawer of scrap watches until the time was right. Before, and after.

    The beast. Before finding a donor movement.
    The beauty. Close to two years later, after things came together. A Howard series 5 that I did for a friend, about 35 years ago.

    145.022-68 i.e. Beauty versus a 145.022-69 in incredibly overpolished state and sporting a service bezel...

    Two vintage Seamasters. On the left a 1962 14389 with a clean dial. On the right a 1954 2759 with dial spotting and patina (still kinda charming though!).
