    OK! I promised to stick to Alpinas this week, but this one finally got a proper strap, and a quick clean-up after having undergone full service.
    Omega DeVille caliber 860 chrono. 1968/69 ref 145.017. This will get some deserved wrist time this evening after possibly a decade or two in hibernation.

    Today, the last few days in fact, have been "bumper" days... but tomorrow is Hamilton 992 day, pure porn made in 1908.

    I freakin' love it! As much as I dug the Omega 321's inside the 145.006 and their younger sibling 861's in the 145.016, they were always just a hair too large at 40-ish mm. This one has much better proportions for me. At 36.7 mm wide it's right in my wheelhouse for casual watches. My Breitling is shaking on it's winder cushion right now.



    Marc / MMMD posted it in the Recommended Zenith eBay thread. I was watching it, but I don't know my ass from a hole in the ground about most EP's and thought it was an 80's or 90's watch. I PM'ed Marc and Lou asking about it and made an offer to the seller that was accepted. There's a short story about the smoke filled backroom dealings on a few watches recently, but that's for another time and a bottle of something. The best part of this group is how easy it is to come to agreements.

    Running a final time accuracy check, by simply wearing it, on this 1962 Cal.561 Constellation

    Once I have finished editing the images - it will be for sale.

    Making it a funky Wednesday with my Alpina week. An early 1970's Alpina President Automatic. Never seen another one like it!
    Check the asymmetric lugs... Why? Because they could I guess...
    :rolleyes:
