    My teenager's crush - which I was lucky enough to bag as a young adult not too long after (can't say this about all the girls that I've desired as much as that watch, but we digress). These were the days when Breitling sold Miyota quartz movements in sicura-period cases, and clueless people (like me) would pay automatic-watch money to buy them because they looked bloody marvelous back then and we didn't know better... I will admit shamelessly that I still love it on its original (and not too worn-out) shark strap :D

    Interesting Dial...why would a Swedish Military timepiece have a British Army crows foot on it? Never seen a Swedish Dial with any Mil Markings, other than the TG 195 and there's lots of speculation as to what that actually means.

    Does it have three crowns on the back?

    I still cannot believe how accurate this watch is. It’s got an ‘adjusted to five positions’ Lemania movement in it. Only a second or two gain a day. It’s currently one of my favorite watches.

    To some, it’s a frankenwatch. To me, it’s a stunt double for my Speedymoon, which cost me around five times as much as this did. I even found a 1450 bracelet for it.

    Only three things, from the outside, give it away that this is not a real Speedymoon. Bezel is modern, not DNN; dial is service replacement for Speedymoon, with luminova and lower numerals on the date subdial facing outward; and, hands are also luminova, with the chrono second hand having the older tail.

    Hey, two Doxas in a row!

    "Aubry era" Doxa Searambler. The previous owner took such good care of this one, I'm always nervous that I will scratch it. ;)
