    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

    As sharp as a tack and a wee star, taken to the touring life like a duck to water. Helping my French no end with so many people asking about my boys.

    This is surprising and disappointing. My navitimer and aerospace are both beautifully finished.

    This is why I sold my great white. Loved the watch but was a pain in rotation without a quick set date.

    ^ I also went military today but not quite so old - the CWC G10 that was issued to me back in '95.

    The strap is my regimental NATO. I've spent several years trying to source a replacement of this. My regiment was amalgamated into the Rifles nearly a decade ago and I was starting to think I might need to do a custom run of 1000 just to get one but I was successful a couple of weeks ago while I was back in the UK.

    I'm surprised by this too. I've had a Super Ocean for years and love it, fit and finish very good and rubber Hershey stap very good as well. Granted I don't have the steel bracelet but still surprised by this.:(
