Not really thinking much about watches ... just switched out the Rolex after 2 weeks.
Reporting for Phlieger Phriday with my generic ETA 6497 built at AWCI Build a Watch 2.0 earlier this month in Portland, OR.
It was a birthday gift from Mrs.1128 to yours truly, and my last activity away from the house before hunkering down for the duration of COVID-19.
It was a great all around experience and provided a new level of appreciation for the art and our hobby - with the added bonus that my watchmaker was one of the instructors for the class!
Pretty happy with the outcome too: bead-blasted SS case, box sapphire crystal, matte blue dial, brushed SS hands, a sapphire case back and blued screws for the movement. And despite me assembling and lubricating the parts, it keeps great time at +1 sec / day.
I was inspired when @Mad Dog did this class a year or so ago, and when I heard from my watchmaker that he'd be instructing, my attendance was a no brainer. It is a challenging course to be sure, but highly recommended .
Omega Deville reverese panda for me today
Stay well folks
II I lI l love this watch. 1960s Benrus. Inexpensive and in my opinion beautiful. I like the odd numbers being left out, the red seconds hand, light “gold” hands and hour markers and stainless case. Alligator band helps, too.
Back to bday watch. 70’s survivors.
Nice! and the Marantz...
Dreary, gray day here. This one to the rescue!...YaY!
I decided I needed some change in my life so I wandered down to my safe and grabbed old faithful. This was a gift from my parents when I graduated from university 32 years ago. I had it serviced and a new bracelet put on it a couple of years ago.
Going with an old speedmaster today
