    I can relate to and sympathise with you, I had a watch/clockmaker for 3 or 4 years during the first period of collecting. It always took an age to receive anything back from him. And then only after many telephone calls and visits to check on progress. On numerous occasions things had to go back to him too. It was a terrible time and the final straw was when I went in to check on the slow progress of a 1940´s Omega alarm clock that he had in for 6 months for service only to see all the movement parts together with the perfect and fragile radium filled hands sloshing around together in an open plastic tub on his messy work station. I was really peeved and for that, amongst other things, was the last time I used him for any work.

    After this I found the guy I still use today who is fantastic and has enabled me to consider and take on project watches too, which I love and brings my enjoyment of this hobby to a whole other level.

    This finally came back from minor surgery:

    The A788 is one of those watches that does not photograph well. It is, however, one of those watches that, once on the wrist, makes the wearer look at it frequently to admire it.

    OH. :) Thx !!!

    It's beautiful. I've an Eton or 2 but I've not seen anything close to as nice as that before. I must take another look,

    I'm also "long" (~17.5 x 38)

    I hate doing bespoke because, well, I can't really afford it. Lol. Nordstrom always seems best. Sometimes I get coupons for Zegna and then take a ride out to Short Hills, NJ.. (where they have the deepest inventory). The coupons help big time.

    I had the best connect (((ever))) around a decade ago. A friend from high school worked @ Richards in Greenwich, CT and the infamous WWE Vince McMahon had all his MTM done there. It was "one and done" for him so they would sell me his "used" stuff on the down low. I was getting $5000 Zegna sport coats for a hundred or two hundred bucks. We were identical size. This was when he was all jacked up on HgH and TRT.

    Sorry to digress...

    Spent the morning checking out the Phillips catalogue, so naturally felt like putting an old steel chrono on (plus I can use it for timing my breakfast eggs :D)

    @citizenrich - Thanks! The brand is Seaboard Yacht. There is little information about the watches. They are quite rare and not easily found. Some info on the brand can be found at: http://www.heuerchrono.com/seaboard-yacht/

    The watch is powered by a J.P. Pingouin signed - Valjoux 7733 with a special double tooth on the minute counter that counts every 30 seconds vs. every minute.
