    iconic pieces; enjoy them!
    I was really surprised the first time that I wore a primero. its just such a darn good watch. it does everything like you wish. great chronograph with a high frequency automatic movement and with a date function. and the looks...
    105.012-66 HF not bad either;-)

    Yes, and incredibly light on the wrist for an automatic. Ok, i’m used to wearing Big Blues, Ploprofs and other divers, so maybe this is the reason that the El Primero feels to me like wearing nothing on my wrist or a Swatch. :)

    Interesting to see how much dust has gathered inside the crystal on the Speedmaster. Well, off for a well deserved trip to the spa it goes.

    @JanV Nice pair you got there!

    I live on the west coast of Sweden and need a spa for a speedy. Do you have any recommendations?

    Sorry, I don’t know if any good watchmaker on the west coast of Sweden. Maybe some other members could chime in for this?
