    they're actually surprisingly affordable, nobody really wants an A anymore (A freind of mine figures the young guys that lusted after them have all passed on)

    And pretty much every piece is available new. A few years back there was company in western Canada assembling them from new parts and selling them, dunno how they got around the Ministry of Transport on that one, maybe they were recycling old serial numbers.

    I recently viewed a '29 "A" sedan which was all original, except for rear seat upholstery. It hasn't been painted by the owner, so I believe the paint to be original. Same family has owned it for 63 years. Don't know the mileage, but low. Owned by a watch and clock collector who recently passed away. The wife doesn't drive it. He swapped a Rambler station wagon for it, all those years ago. The Rambler has likely ended up as rebar, by now.

    Wearing this 3552.59 Speedmaster Racing today, which I suspect would not win any popularity contests here. But I believe it has a small claim to Speedmaster fame. I believe it is the only 42 mm Speedmaster with WR >= 100m...with all white hands!

    racing ws cIMG_9933.jpg


    No manual Speedy has the WR. Neither do the earlier cal 1040/1045 autos. Other 42mm Racing/Schumacher and Broad Arrows versions have metalized hands. The 3313 Speedmaster co-axial is 44.25mm. No 9300 Speedy is 42mm. And even the new Mark II is a little over 42mm.

    Oh, and there is no reference to Michael Schumacher anywhere on it.

    So how about it...is this model worthy of a bit of WIS respect? :)

    Beautiful day on Lac Leman (Lake Geneva). People always go visit Geneva but they are missing out on all of the Lavaux region.
