    My wife has long ago given up commenting on my wearing two watches! Even when I wear three. However, recently, someone commented on my wearing two watches. My reply (after a brief pause) was.....Doesn't everybody? Regales of laughter ensued!

    Don't blame this thing on a member of my bloodline [emoji3]

    It has a tiger on the dial so I'm not sure it matters what's inside, but if this looks familiar to anyone I guess I would like to know...

    3570.50, the Toyota Camry of Speedy Pros. Not an LE, no nicely aged tritium, just an excellent dependable watch that I've had for 10-12 yrs.

    Looks to me like a pin lever movement, and there is no way it has 21-jewels! Rocker bar winding behind the dial. With all the florid engraving on the back, and excessive information on the dial, this watch is masquerading as something it isn't!

    Perhaps not the proudest moments of Swiss watchmaking, but not faked in any way.
    It is some version of Bettlach caliber EB802x.

    I have seen other "divers watches" from the 70s using these. They are fully serviceable and possible to make run relatively precise.

    If you ever see "Seagull" brand watches, they are another Chinese maker who also sends their movements to larger, more expensive watch companies. So even some of your respected brands use cheap movements.

    Nothing wrong with Chinese watches I guess? I have none, but at their best I've been told they can produce decent movements.
    The watch in question has a Swiss movement, but also a very cheap one.

    I am wearing this 1982 Constellation Manhattan. The map in the foreground shows the military operations that took place in 28 October 1940 when Italy attacked Greece:

    My friend wristwatch is nothing special ... unless the wearer is Olympic champion in Beijing 2008 ...

    He wants my Speedmaster. I want to be Olympic champion ...

    If I give it to him ... I will be gold in Rio 2016? ( I don´t think so )
