I have to get hold of one of those gray-dial Datejusts some day. But for today, this will have to do.
Today, and for the next few weeks. My 52-year old Accutron 214 of which I am the sole owner. Had it since 1964. This is a sentimental favourite because it is the watch I wore on our wedding day, April 16, 1966. It shows on my wrist in our wedding photo, albeit on a strap rather than a bracelet back then. Fifty years married! Not a record, but better than average. Still married to the same girl!
today is seamaster's day!
The straight writing is providing some serious wrist time competition to the Ploprof 1200. And it's been 3 days since I have worn the Ploprof 600.
Big congrats to you and the Mrs.!
One last quiet evening before the official start of the Sevilla feria
... with my faithfull 71yo ...
... a brand high above ...
... it seems
Only had my old camera phone to document a rather lovely evening stroll with my girlfriend, whom I'm truly lucky to have! When reading something like this
I know I have someone special - hope to live long enough to share a similar story sometime
Oh yeah, the watch:
Wow what beautiful shop front.. And great watch of course...
Fifty five years ago, on 12 April 1961, Yuri Gagarin became first human to journey into outer space when his Vostok spacecraft completed an orbit of the Earth. Allegedly Gagarin was wearing this watch during his mission - Poljot Sturmanskie. Not fancy as a Speedy but this timepiece has its own place in history
Started the day with an oldie (picture taken when I left work)...
Then, changed to this so I could use it again (still new for me and awesome to wear)
And finally, had to dress up for the night so wore this (also a new addition from last week)
So yeah, got to wear three watches on the same day!

At the Dolphin resort in Disney, work conference, no fun . . .
The sangria doesn't look too shabby either... I can think of worst ways to spend some time with a Longines Greenlander.
