    Hey Mick. Beautiful watch! Can you elaborate on what you mean by "updated" here? Thanks.

    From time to time I try to improve a watch. The tasks range from cleaning the case by hand or in an ultrasonic cleaner, polishing the plexi, changing the strap or bracelet, up to simpler works on the movement. Sometimes I have to define the work to be done by a watchmaker.

    The series of my last WRUW posts documented the results of this care on my early Autavias.

    Stay tuned, I will finish with another rare (non) Autavia.


    Cheers,


    Mick

    Just a bit loose on the tightest position, but I'm not about to bend/pry any links to shorten it further!

    Safe travels my friend

    Wearing Speedy Gonzales on the Rothco protective band...due to "being volunteered" to offload 48 cubic feet of mulch for my in-laws' yard.

    Today I'm wearing 16 vials of radioactive gas. It's the watch I wear when I'm feeding alligators, or working with hand tools. No alligators today :)

    I'm not quite sure how it goes with a croco strap, but the dial is nice enough to give it a try

    Don't forget to look for the lunar eclipse tonight. Most in Europe, Africa, and the Americas should be able to see it.

    Of course it's supposed to be completely cloudy here near Chicago :( so I've made the best of it by fully setting and wearing my Speedmaster Moonphase. Tonight I'll be enjoying Lifetime's new "The Speed Edition" which just came in. YaY!
