Because we can’t keep them all ... at least me
Mustache, muffin, military (inspired) Monday.
Junghans Max Bill Chronoscope.
Looking at the back, I've actually wondered if the Max Bill signage might just have been scratched on by a prior owner...with about my level of skills...
But besides seeing pics of the back of other examples, it does appear to be a reasonable facsimile of the artists signature!
YaY! and Happy Monday!
Ref 168.010 Cal 564 from 1966 enjoying some sun in the garden.
This one has been feeling neglected. Haven’t worn it for a year or so. Caliber 341, circa early 1950s. This one is a survivor. Condition when it came to me was such that many would have considered it as a donor, useful only for parts. Gold shell case on it was destroyed. Beyond doing anything with. Dial was equally bad. A quick check in my stash, and I discovered that I had a steel case, and much better dial. With a hand-made case clamp, new mainspring, recondition, replace sad hour hand, non-genuine crown, and voila. Here is the result. An excellent runner. Considering the terrible abuse it had endured, I was delighted that the movement survived in quite good condition.
My avatar watch today. It’s almost a new moon.
Golden Monday after golden sunday.

I bought this a over a year ago, but due to various problems it only arrived today ! Thanks to an OF’er who helped out big-time with delivery
It’s a first version of the Junghans Bund (the 88/0110) which was very quickly superceded by the better known model with the wavey bezel (the 88/0111). Dial is more like a civilian one but I managed to get a correct one with a movement just last month. The 88/110 normally had a coin edged bezel but there’s not even a groove on this midcase so it never had a bezel. There’s at least one other bezel-less 88/110 out there so it might be a correct variant. I’ll have to try and research things...
Left one today.
