The rest of the day with my favourite old mystery piece.
Certainly some retooling and expanding at a minimum, and not just drilling holes for chrono pushers, but as for the freshness... soooooooo 1968.
***EDIT*** I see your point now - not sure about the date of introduction of those Tempo-Matics, but thought it was earlier. Still interesting about the shared bracelet reference.
Greetings all Always great seeing the beautiful watches here after a rough and long day...... Feeling rough and banged up myself after an intense day at the office, so am going out with my rough and banged up project watch this evening
SM 176.001 chronograph, cal. 1040 - "tachymeter-less" first generation, on original 1170 SS bracelet and makeshift 604 end links (till the 653's drop from the sky somehow )
oohhh... not done this before. fun. 712 on gator look leather strap. minute and hour hands are actually stainless with black and lume inserts, and 'sparkle' in the sunlight.
Pink Gold Ranchero Cal 267 2990.
Speedmaster Mark III 176.002 from 1972
wow. That cleaned up nice....
I did not know that one was pink...
Neither did I.
It's the main reason I'm selling the yellow gold one!
Oh, this is a different watch! Thought you had found replacement hands.
Alpha, did you put that beautiful Seamaster in a muddy, Scottish slush puddle? It's a very good photo.
Kommis, that is as nice an example of what appears to be a 105.012, unmolested, as I've ever seen. If it's a 145.012, it's still true.
Yes, this one is definitely a keeper. It's been in a display box for ::years::. I want stick to the cleanest examples I can find..
Hi Elroy, poor birds couldn't use the bird bath so I made use of it - sorry not me as such
Good backdrop for a quick shot with the iphone and not to worry left the garden water feature running for the birds
This off to London again.
I hate shooting black dials..!
Looking for signs of spring
This hasn't been out for a while
New strap arrived for this fella so a quick change.
