    My 14 y. o. daughter's electronic alarm clock no longer works for her, so last night I strapped this to her bed post, and she awoke to "barking metal crickets"... She looked a little frazzled at breakfast :confused:..but she was right on time!

    Lemania 1281, essentially the same base caliber as the Omega 321 AFAIK. ca. late '50s. It's not large (33mm) but that's okay on my medium wrist.

    Here's a shot of it next to my contemporaneous CK 2907:

    Dibs on that CK 2907! I love the beefy lug Seamaster chronos! I would hate to split the pair up so double dibs.

    Mr. Heuer borrowed a few ideas, methinks.

    Test driving a Breitling Seawolf 3000M Titanium Diver... first impressions are quite poor... very poorly finished and crummy feeling bracelet, not just because its titanium and light but because they haven't put much effort in, its stupidly top heavy which makes it flop around badly, way too tall, and the level of finishing / build quality is disappointingly sloppy. This is a surprisingly bad watch compared to a Submariner, Seamaster Pro, or TAG Heuer Aquaracer, which I really didn't expect from Breitling.

    Readability is good I guess, so there's that...

    Always a favorite. I am always attracted to these, and other, exotic dials, though I own none. Go figure.:rolleyes:

    One, of my "stable" of Accutrons. This one from 1964. Unique in one way. It is the only gold-filled Accutron 214 I recall ever having seen which has a gold filled back! Rather than the usual stainless steel back. The fellow had been given a Rolex Date-Just by the family. He offered the Accutron to his adult son who was wearing a modern Rado. The son declined! Can you imagine? The father wanted the 214 to go to a good home, and he knew I was a collector, so he gave it to me. That was 30 years ago. I sent him a floral arrangement and a bottle of good sherry. He phoned me to express anger that I had done it! Go figure!

    That's a good one! :thumbsup:

    LATE ENTRY: Sort of funny how it works...my recent craze with thrash metal is due in part as a rebellion against our teenagers (ages 17 & 14) listening to rap and hip-hop. :D
