    A proper OF story... middle aged fellow who used to prefer modern watches, sees an old watch he didn't even know existed before listed FS on OF by @JimJupiter . After contemplating for some time, he cannot help himself and ends up buying it. Having seen many lovely custom straps made by @Fost , he then reaches out to have one made special. Having read multiple accounts of whether to service or not, and knowing full well that whether a service is needed or not always "depends...", he takes it to one of the best and gets a proper service by @Archer , just in case. ;) The story doesn't end there of course, because wearing it happily is simply not enough... but he ends up posting about it in as many threads as possible, because the joy of a beauty like this just must be shared! (right?)

    TL : DR -- Dugena chrono today!

    I started with my Montreal but only to bring it into the office to send to its new owner. Fortunately my 176.005 was waiting on my other wrist ready to take over.

    Older pictures, but this one. My 1933 Rolex Prince Observatory duo-dial. The only one of these I have ever run into with 18-jewels (15 and17, typically), and adjusted to 6 positions. Gruen used this movement as well. Suspect it was made by Aegler, for Rolex. I am the second owner. My late father having bought this one in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Unfortunately, a gold filled case.

    1960s Benrus Sky Chief housing a Valjoux 71. Can't really see in this light, but the red sweep hand has faded completely to brown.
