    Picked this up yesterday from a bargain little 'ole Watchmaker along with some Illinois and Elgins. Ran out of money there

    Movado Calendomatic. Bumper, early 50's gold cap.
    came with original Movado gator w/ pig back band,(like new), buckle and instruction pamphlet/tag.
    Dial looks much better in life.

    Was using it to time a bike ride this morning. Unfortunately, like a tempermental '50s sports car, it is acting up, namely the top pusher is now stuck ::rant: Hopefully an easy fix for my watchmaker next week...

    Switching to a new acquisition -- well, reacquiring an identical watch that I used to own in the '80s-90s and have since regretted selling. It was the first "real" watch I bought for myself in those days (1987) soon after college. I loved it, but hated at the time having to pay $$ to have the battery changed every 3 years, with new gaskets, etc. I sold it on eBay in about 1999.

    It's a bit small compared to my Subs and GMTs, but I am getting used to it (again) on the wrist very quickly.

    I remember at the time that the models with steel bracelets were quite a bit more (mine was $150), but I liked this better. It came in all sorts of cool colors. I think the current distortions that Tag-Heuer has made to this model are garish and ugly, but these original ones still excite me.

    I worked a job tonight where wearing a 4 or 5 figure watch is not a smart idea. So I wore this eco drive; really enjoyed it and it helped make the night fly by:

    To answer the puzzled looks on fellow members' faces, I (re)-bought this one basically to have as a travel watch; planning a trip to Hawaii soon. I thought it would fit the bill. It is sort of vintage, in any case (at least the modest size is).

    In England, you'll need to wear the watch on your right wrist for the full Bizarro-MMMD effect. :)
