    Got the Speedy on a new leather strap, bought from Etsy from Babu Handmade Leather. Great price, and absolutely top notch quality!

    This is my consistently the favorite watch to wear and has rarely been out of the rotation since it arrived last year.

    5B90A192-30DE-4DBC-BA67-33B0F3A4BF28.jpeg

    Even though it was a pain in the butt to get it squared away after it arrived (needed that elusive hour reset hammer, an unbrutilized caseback and an inner cover), it has become much beloved.

    All the rest is still as it arrived, correct pushers and crown, nice dial and hands, faded bezel and midcase.

    Monday Night Football, a glass of Eagle Rare Bourbon over a ball of ice, and this companion on the wrist.

    I have my stepfather's Spaceview from the early '60s. They are such epic watches ... a good reminder that I need to get it restored so it can run again.

    Not fair! A tease, at best, @Omega1 .

    At least give us a movement shot and maybe even say something about it?

    Incoming - 2.5 yr old Hamilton GMT retro-style automatic with screw down crowns for 100M WR (not going to get the leather deployant strap wet, but not sure what strap I'll stay with). Too bad the GMT hand isn't tied to the city track once you set it, so that you could change cities and the GMT hand would follow (worldtimer). I like that I can use the outer track bezel for timing things up to 60 minutes.

    Yes, I have aligned the bezels since this photo was taken.

    EDIT - I hate autocorrect because even when you know how to spell deployment < autocorrect fixes it like this - Deployant Deployant Deployant in caps and autocorrect ignores it.
