    Not wearing, actually. A bit awkward for that. This is a dash clock for something about which I have no idea. The movement is an 8-day, 15 jewel, dial marked HEUER Master Time. Movement is a 22 ligne, Swiss, Arogno calibre 27. I like it. It is equipped with a micrometer regulator, sweep seconds hand, a hack, and with Incabloc jeweling on the balance wheel. I didn’t realize untiI uploaded the images that there is a bit of lint on the outside of the glass. Dam black dials. This one needed a repair to the centre wheel (arbor broke loose), and recondition. Shows really well on the timing machine, so will test it as a bench chronometer.

    What, and have an air bag deploy and end up with a second “ticker” embedded in my chest? Surely you jest! ;)

    Naw man! not the modern thing.... we're talking the he-man's Camero, the one that came with a glove box full of gold medallions on thick gold chains and an 8 track of Englebert Humperdinks greatest hits... you remember, the glory days of the GM F body... 305 cubic inches and 150 soggy horsepower

    Call me square. Not a GM guy, never owned a gold chain, and Engelbert Humperdinck is really an loser English rocker named Arnold Gerry Dorsey who only made it big after he adopted the stage name of the German classical composer Engelbert Humperdinck who lived in the 19th century. Sorry!

    Wow, dude must be from the prairies or some other highly civilized part of the world.

    I’ll bet you have a Hamilton 950.

    Or maybe... a Bunn Special

    Prairies, right! Civilized? Is that how you easterners view us out here? Hamilton 950? Yup! And a 950 B, and a 952. A Bunn Special 60-hour? Yup! Anything else you’d like to know? :)

    I put in a few years in Winnipeg, and had to move south to get there. I’m mired in the “Golden Horseshoe” in Ontario now. Take my word for it, having tried both, you live in a more civilized part of the world than I do now.

    Any 18 size Bunns, you have to love those!

    I have several 18-size Illinois, including two model 2, grade 4, 11-jewel Railroaders (train engraved on movement), one model 3 transitional key/stem winder (5th pinion), one model 1 key wind hunter, and an 18-size, 21-jewel Bunn Special as well as the 60-hour Bunn Special. But I’m really more of a Hamilton guy.
