    It actually weighs 250 grams. I really like the weight of it. It’s really not that much different than the BLNR. I just like the shape of it. It would be thick if you wear a dress shirt often. (I don’t ). It’s an awesome watch. I sent mine for service a while ago and wore my BLNR during that time. I missed my PO a lot.
    The other watch I like to wear is a titanium Aqua Terra GoodPlanet on strap, which is lighter yet.
    My watch is a discontinued model so you’ll have to find it in the used/grey market. I got mine from DavidSW. Good luck with your search!

    I managed to pry MY watch off of my wife’s wrist so I could wear it today.......and yes I’m wearing green. Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! Look after yourselves and your families.

    Mido for the evening, some may remember it languishing on the sales without interest and then a daughter decided she liked it but that relationship barely lasted a couple of weeks ?

    Happy to have it back :)

    Thanks to a little assistance from @Canuck , I've gotten the Accutron Spaceview that my late stepfather wore daily for many years running again. It needs a service, but for now, it's a great memory come back to life. A wonderful distraction in the midst of the current confusion!

    So the great escape committee of Tom ,Dick & Harry had its inaugural meeting this afternoon ,and decided the best way forward would be some good old fashioned bartering . So after some heavy bartering negotiations with one of the hotels security guards here’s a quick pic of the spoils , the dearest can of Guinness I’ve ever bought but just had to have one to celebrate St Patrick’s . 67695FEA-F6AB-4614-AC1E-B398FDAB88D1.jpeg

    Accutrons are really not more of a problem than any other type of vintage watch. The problems aren’t greater.....just different! One recurring factor in Accutrons that don’t appear to work is that many people equate them with typical modern quartz watches! Installing incorrect batteries the wrong way up is typical. In reply to a PM from @flw , I was able to tell him what to do to put his Spaceview back into service. Always glad to help!

    I’ll keep an eye open for the PO reference but post a picture next time you wear the GoodPlanet! Sounds like you have a great collection, wear it in good health!
