    I was recently told by an unidentified astronaut about a wild night of watch tomfoolery that happen the night before their mission.:whistling:

    After a night of consuming too many whisky sours and white Russians in the VIP suite at the Sea Missile Motel the guys got to talking about their watches. He said it got totally nuts and went off the rails with all kinds of crazy watch combos being concocted from their various watches. Then all of a sudden Al Shepard busted through the door and shut it all down. Damn near lucky they were not pulled from their mission the next day he said.;)

    Out of everything created that night this combination was one of their favorites so I thought I would try it out for the weekend. Love it or hate it I have to say it wears quite well and gives the GMT a real 60's vibe. I've even poured a bit of gin on the bracelet to give it that after party next day stickiness and smell.

    Not wanting to hijack your post, but here is my watch which was 3 years old when we were married over 50 years ago. 1963 Accutron 214. Still have it, though it is not on my wrist today. An outdoors day today, and rain is predicted. It was $195.00 (Cdn.) on a leather strap, back then. High tech and very advanced for the day!

    2254.50 back on bracelet today....

    If anyone's seen a spring bar it took off from central England about two hours ago. Last seen heading towards America's east coast travelling at 2000mph.
    By my reckoning, and depending on wind direction, it's probably in the NewYork/Boston area about now. If you find it send me a PM. Cheers ;)

    With a strong head wind, it might have ended up in Iceland or Greenland! But don't give up searching your work area! After a search involving several hours in my shop, I was fortunate enough to locate a Rolex stem and crown which recently disappeared from my bench top. Fringe benefit? My shop received a badly needed freshening over the process!

    Other than the internet, which I know creates new problems of trust that seem to me to be higher than face to face encounters, how do you find specimens like these?

    Every day I'm in awe at the number of superior examples of vintage timepieces shown here. These are just the latest....
