1949 Cyma manual wind
Just received a new tan ostrich strap so I'm wearing my Tuesday watch on Wednesday. ( )
I like it. The color is a little lighter than depicted in this shot. Thanks Mike!
Going to the dark side...
Omega 750 from 1969
Nice, very clean!
Pulled the caliber 800C out today.
This week is the Zodiac Aerospace GMT, expecting a Aerospace "world time" in the mail tomorrow.
Since coming here the number of pieces you've got floating around does seem to be on the increase lol
And there's no vaccine either. Hey, I'm pretty sure I warned Ron that the banner should say "Abandon all hope ye who enter here" so he can't blame me. Can't go wrong with Zodiac, Jenny, or Aquadive recently. They seem to be breaking out of the cheapie bracket and into a slightly higher price club.
The watch thing can get addictive.. The Zodiac GMT was one I ran into locally for $150. As clean and original as it was I could not pass it up. These range from $200 to over $750. This one is an early to mid 60's model with the harder to find silver dial and "arrow" hand. The "world time" is the result of a trade, I let a collector get a "grail" Sea Wolf (yellow/black racing bezel) and I get a watch that I will wear that is just about as rare. To bad Omega never made a GMT or World Time watch back in the day, Flightmaster is about the only "vintage" Omega I know of. The only hole right now is perhaps a "dress" watch, my Soccer Timer might just find a new home to fill that need.
Switching to a Skagen day- date for the evening.
Nothing quite like winding up a hand wind.
Put on the vintage Aquadive after work - maybe for the last time as it's on the block with a pending offer.
