If dogs could talk...
Very nice. This Tradition is actually a different watch as I had the chance to buy 2. This is the one I kept
Wow! Fifteen years with one employer is a lot these days. Way to go, man!
I usually try to wear this on a Wednesday, but today it was a Wakmann Thursday.

I had an early medical appointment today and decided to extend my leave from the office with a little...a...er...respiratory therapy in the Santa Monica Mountains before returning to work. This Spring is the first in several years to feature abundant blooms of wildflowers due to the extended drought. Our precipitation so far this year has just been average but we'll take average with gratitude. The flowers in the background are called Isomeris, also known by the rather un-romantic common name Bladderpod.
Full disclosure: I removed a blob of dog slobber from the watch crystal with Photoshop.
Warm sunny day today.
Brings out the yellow in this dial.
Here's a 1967 Bulova Commander. 33.4mm case with some rather funky sized 17.3mm lugs. I only mention the lugs because of the strap.
When I received this watch my first impulse, like always, was to get rid of the old strap. Most of straps that come on fleaBay watches are cheap, ugly or nasty in some combination. I pulled out the springbar tool and prepared to remove the strap when I gave it a closer look. Real lizard. Hmmm. Kind of a nice buckle, too. Whoa! This strap was, if not original to the watch, certainly a real period piece and like the watch showed no real wear. The photo below shows a little discoloration that I may try to remove but I really, really like the crosshatch texture. The taper of the strap is different than contemporary straps - a little sharper going from 17.3mm to just over 12mm.
After a service the watch is a great timepiece. I just love the strong styling of the dial; it's what I love about mid to late '60's watches.
I can't stop looking at this!
Please tell me one day you might be willing to sell, or trade for one of mine...
My concern is that while the GF is out, he is wearing his WIFE's undies. So cheating as well?

Ordered a replacement crystal, as well as the o-ring for the case
Amazed by this every time I decide to wear it....

If I had a talking dog I'd sell it and buy a lot of nice watches.
But I'm not much of a people person. Can you image if dogs could talk? I don't think they'd be talking about watches.
Tonight's after work menu includes 2005 Lucien Le Moine and 2013 Omega Aqua Terra.
