    “Phlieger” ETA 6497-1 for today...and for the record, it’s amazing the appeal a watch can generate when you have sweat equity in it...three days of joy, chaos, additional joy, frustration, more joy, stress and even MORE JOY at the AWCI introduction to watchmaking school where I built this watch [with quite a bit of fantabulous help]...good times! :thumbsup:

    NOTE: Bergeon swag provided by the AWCI as part of the school. :thumbsup:

    Contorting for the wrist shot...man, those domed crystals are difficult to photograph in certain lighting conditions...

    Every once in awhile she suggests that I might want to help. When that happens I help as much as I can by throwing everything that looks remotely good into the cart. It doesn’t happen again for a long time after that!

    Very, very impressive.
    Once you’ve settled on the logo and the ‘Mad Dog’ TM registered brand, please put me down for one :)

    Thanks, sir. :cool:

    How’s this for a logo? A beautiful [and humongous] trench that I skillfully engraved on my ETA 6497-1’s movement while rushing to install a screw [to catch up to my classmates] during the AWCI introduction to watchmaking school. :D
