    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 :confused:

    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 :whistling: )

    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.

    Hi Elroy, poor birds couldn't use the bird bath so I made use of it - sorry not me as such :confused:
    Good backdrop for a quick shot with the iphone and not to worry left the garden water feature running for the birds :thumbsup:
