    Well allow me make matters worse then! :p

    Ordered on Tuesday, arrived in northern California from UK on Thursday. Comes with the nato (I wasn't really a fan before, but I like this one) and two quite nice quality leather straps (a brown and a black one, open ended, with an adhesive flap with a paper peel-away tab). Comes with a two-watch zippered travel case - which looks more than capable of doing the job and appears well made. All of this for, what, almost the price of an alligator strap. What's not to love here?

    I've got all the big honkin' oversized watches I could ever need (well, you know, for now ;) ) - I like the 36mm a lot, I think it'll make a great summer-casual watch.

    Glycine Airman SST.
    OF6.jpg

    OF4.jpg
    SST-Super Sonic Transport. Caseback possibly depicts the Boeing 2707 which only got as far as a prototype before Government funding was pulled in 1971. Could also be the Tupelov Tu-144 on which development began in July 1963. To confuse things further the watch manual depicts Concorde on a couple of its pages. The Glycine Airman SST ran from 1967-1978. The one above is from 1969 fitted with the A. Schild Cal.1903. This went on until 1971 when the A. Schild Cal. 2063 was fitted. There was a final change in 1974 to the A.Schild Cal. 2163. This lasted until the demise of this model in 1978. It was pretty much the demise of Glycine in general with the Quartz crisis and other factors.

    Seiko Zimbe 3, babytuna. As I was on vacation in Thailand last week, I found this LE and couldn't resist.
    Yes, it's big and bold, but once you tried it, you can't get it off your wrist! Fun watch, with nice light grey dial and great lume
