Not a speedie but kind of related

I know its #SpeedyTuesday but my SMPO called out to me this morning for some wrist time.
Heading out of Paris on the Eurostar. And picked this on the trip. Yema Yachtingraf Regate Jumbo 1970.
Cal 135 today.
I think he approves:
I realize that Speedmasters are the watch of choice today, and I could choose either of my two Speedmasters. But I have been wearing my 27-year old Date-Just now since reconditioning it in mid-November. Re-set once, and regulated since late November, and not touched since. Total variation since last re-set in late November? It is 28-seconds fast, but it has gained only ONE SECOND since early February! No good reason to change watches, actually.
Fresh from watchmaker, working again.
Back from service
Coral (pink gold filled) Wilshire today, ca. 1941
Thanks. Every Speedy Tuesday needs some palate cleansers
It's a blue day.
That's quite the "palate cleanser." It's like looking at the sun and the temporary blindness that goes with it...now I can't see any other watches!
Having serious trouble getting the Seiko Bell-Matic off my wrist, I've turned to a not-too dissimilar Omega reference, a lovely chunk of Chronometric perfection:
Later that same day...
It's an AT Tuesday for me
Because Tuesday.. and I can't get it off my wrist any day.
