    This is a fun little game for folks to put their years of collecting knowledge to the test. It's pretty simple - a user posts an image of a section of the watch (including the dial helps, but no such rule) and others have to guess the make and model. Once it's figured out, another user posts an image and it goes from there.

    I'll kick things off.

    Damn, that is correct though I fully expected this one to be a little challenging.

    Ok, who wants to post one next?

    Well, to be fair, your riddle was solved by one of the most knowledgeable collectors on this forum. ;)
    The rest of us mere mortals were stumped, but that 24-hour ring was the clue wasn't it?
    I assume your watch looks like this example:
    [​IMG]

    A picture of your watch too, if you please. :)

    I expect the first answer to be the correct answer.

    I knew that one would not be a problem. Not tough, but a bit tougher. One major clue is quite evident.

    I think we need another clue, although a wild guess might be a Zenith?

    Never seen a Zenith star look like that, though, perhaps a Russian one might...

    Not Caravelle. But from the same company. Hint! 53 years old.
