    Headed to nose around the freshly re-opened RAF Museum at Hendon earlier this week... I don't have any military pilots watches, but this felt appropriate. :)

    I took this along to the Mini-Meet last night as a bit of contrast to some of the much bigger, and much more expensive bits of kit in the watch roll... and realised that I kinda love it, so have been wearing it around town today.

    Service history unknown, but from the untouched screw heads on the movement, and lack of service marks, I don't think anyones been in there... as a result, the time keeping is... interesting. ::facepalm1::

    683F79B5-2FA6-4929-A859-1274AA9838F7.png A hot and humid morning gave way to sunshine earlier. Then the storm squalls rolled in and the lightning is crazy. Hitting very close now, less than a mile from my house. How does one brighten up such a fiercely unsettled day? By putting a splash of color on one’s wrist!

    There’s a long backstory about this Abercrombie & Fitch Seafarer and I’ll try and write it all up in a thread in the next week or two. In the meantime I have to say a big thankyou to a group of fellow forum members who provided invaluable advice, and guided me through a (hopefully) sympathetic restoration. So @Northernman @Modest_Proposal @Syrte @georgetownhoya and @vintagechrono - Thanks :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Rose gold Universal today. Classic bling, when the sun hits it in the car, it lights up the headlining like a glitter ball
