    Well I'm no expert but, beyond all of the other vintage watch criteria, I looked for one in very good condition with a movement picture that looked good. When looking at movement also made sure there wasn't evidence of prior battery leakage. I then asked about the date change since these plastic date wheels can be an issue. all was well so I went for it. Oh, forgot to mention the price was right too!;)

    Make sure there is no corrosion around battery, or anywhere else for that matter. These aren't very expensive so waiting for a nice one is advisable...patience is your friend here.:) I was really looking for a steel one but this one was so nice I couldn't resist.

    So far, so good!;)

    P.S. I'm sure the more knowledgeable on the Tuning fork movements will chime in as well.

    Had to dress up a bit today. Figured my SMP would work nicely under the jacket...only to be seen by me as I make a turn (on red after a full stop of course).

    This one has been on my hit list for a while, but something vintage always pushed it aside...until now. Mrs. Darlinboy's comment when it arrived..."So I can have the SubC now?":eek:

    I do love blue dials. Most any blue will work for me. :)

    Today I mounted my Heuer Monaco ref. 740.303G on a new very dark blue strap – too dark for a blue dial, which nicely corresponds to the dark sub dials.

    The movement is a hand-wound Valjoux cal. 7740 ticking with 28,800 bph.

    I'm glad that I found a matching shirt, too.

    Enjoy,

    Mick
