The world's first Analogue Quartz Chronograph
Rolex 6580 today
2375-1 circa 1945 cal 28.10
Omega Speedmaster Professional Mark II with racing dial:

Something a little different for a Friday...
Illinois Blackstone today.
Dibs on 'em all.
Afternoon coffee break
This one today.
Little known fact about the Speedmaster 1450 bracelet: Not only do the links taper in width, but they also taper in thickness and length!
Here are measurements from my 6 o’clock side links, starting after the end link:
Unlike the width, the lengths and thicknesses are grouped in 3s. Then all the removable links are identical.
Couple of pics in case that's confusing.
Note that the width measurements are approximate because the width of each individual link tapers down a bit from the near watch side to the away watch side, meaning they are trapezoidal in head-on profile rather than rectangular (except for the removable links).
I believe this is the only Speedmaster bracelet that tapers in all 3 axes. And imo, this level of bracelet detail presents the watch with a greater degree of depth and elegance.
Casual Friday/chore day
Time travelling back to Skyfall!
Such a great watch. Looks amazing!
