Or as my 376.0822 calls it:
winter is coming... eventually
My '58 Swedish military (edited and corrected) watch was a hit at an Atlanta GTG last night:
OK...that's just tew kewl fer skewl.
I've never seen a watch with the date at the top...that's tew kewl fer skewl (imho).
Longines among others made several different models like this...I also have these...
I think it might be time for you to jump into the vintage pool my friend!
Not mine but tried it on for a while, it is really what it is....
@Hijak , dude, you just shot past 10,000 'likes' here, Congrats, Ed!
All so well deserved with posts like this one!!
Thanks Doug, I hadn't noticed. Right back at ya buddy, you're no slouch yourself! And I'm still waiting for that Marvin!
How could "a stuck up idiot" possibly achieve 10,000 likes. It must be a conspiracy and I suspect foul play
I "liked" your pic and I love the watch - but please stop calling it "bomb squad". The Swedish army issued Lemania Tg 195 was never used by any bomb squad. It was used by the artillery - of all sorts - big and small.
Sometimes I see it is called a chronograph - which I believe is wrong also. It is a watch to easily syncronize time between users. Very handy in the artillery. Push the button and the watch stops, the seconds hand move to 12 - and at the same time the crown moves out to be ready to set the time. When the crown is pushed in - the watch starts again.

In many camps here in Sweden the Daytona is considered a girls watch. At one time it seemed almost mandatory for wealthy girls and women to have one.
I guess I am a little girly - and I am proud of it.
Mk2 Friday, with an @Mad Dog chaser.
Love how this feels on the wrist. I think as much as our puppy loves his bone (antler bone we bought yesterday).
Rarely worn, but always a pleasure
Back from the shop, testing out the chrono
TJ Miller was wearing one of these on Colbert last night!
