    Absolutely the most accurate watch I own. Now I'm going to the pool.

    Some watches have worked harder than others. Caliber 463 serial number matches case serial number. Possible WW2 German military ordered watch is theorized. 20190304_103728.jpg

    Speedy Snowy Monday! We got about eight inches of snow overnight here in northern NJ.

    Historical Note:

    On this day in 1849, there occurred an event that gave rise to another of the twelve great barroom puzzlers - - "Was there ever a guy who was President of the United States for twenty-four hours?" Actually, it was an event that actually didn't take place that caused this oddity to happen.

    Prior to FDR Inauguration Day occurred on March 4th (due to longer travel times by horse and wagon). This particular March 4th fell on a Sunday and the newly elected President, Zachary Taylor, refused for religious reasons to take an oath on a Sunday. So, since the term of the former president expired at noon….and the new guy wouldn't take the oath till Monday....the oval office would be empty.

    The Succession Act of 1792 had provided for just such a problem (gotta love those Founding Fathers). The vacancy was to be filled by the President ProTem of the Senate. Interestingly, the Senate had elected a Missouri Senator, David Rice Atchison, to that post only two days earlier.

    The White House logs indicate that during his twenty-four hour term as President, Atchison did neither tax nor spend. Rather he slept through the day. Ah! For such a benign presidency these days.

    In preparation for Tuesday I figured I needed a new Speedmaster Pro, but when it arrived the packaging was MUCH bigger than expected; I could hardly fit the box(es) into my Cooper.

    This one will be turning 50 in August, glad to have found one in such good cosmetic condition. Internals needed some work, but my watchmaker was able to get it sorted and back to me yesterday. :thumbsup:
