    On this day, January 10, 1969, El Primero was introduced to an awestruck world. Today, 46 years later, it remains -- essentially unchanged -- at the front of the pack, among the finest automatic chronograph movements existing.

    Post 'em if you got 'em, particularly those of the Primeros you received this year, be they vintage....

    ...or modern....

    ...or just disorienting!

    Thanx for the reminder LouS. I think this special day should be an official holiday. And on such a holiday I will even wear my cufflinks... 2015-01-10 19.18.50.jpg
