Lucky me i found this rare specimen Got your point..sorry!
Haha, nicely done! You see - red is lovely
On this one. the tachometer ring is actually the crystal retaining ring. Has anyone had a watch with such a feature? Do you think I’d be able to reuse this retaining ring ona new crystal? I have a slight crack in this crystal.
See my previous post, all Sherpa Graphs had the Tachymeter scale printed on the retaining ring. Btw 3 years earlier (the Graph was introduced in 1960) then Heuer, who many believed were the first using the tension ring as extension of the dial
Nice! Any luck using the old retaining ring on a new crystal? I imagine it would require some experimentation.
Not quite as exotic as some of the other examples, but I recently managed to acquire a very nice Speedmaster Racing Schumacher
I am working on my website and wanted to share it with this community:
Updating this thread with this model by BWC
I've seen several other watches with this "oval checkered flag" motif. Seems that it was quite common on Valjoux Chronos (but branded differently). I really love these. This one belongs to a friend.
