    From goofy sport to electric sport! I don't have my scale with me, but on similar straps like this, the Speedsonic weighs noticeably more than the Bullhead!

    As promised, or maybe you were just fore-warned, in honor of @Omega1, my Sunday Vintage on a Budget ......I will rotate through these 3 watches today, after all when was the last time you wore 1 watch for an entire day? I have $4.50 in the blue dial Seiko, $5 in the gold toned with the chocolate dial and $9 in the moldy Hamilton Rodney. I know this isn't the normal case seen on the Rodney, but when I posted my find on here a couple of years ago, I believe it was @Vanallard who said he had seen this case on late model Rodneys and thought the model may have been moved to the presentation watch line. I believe the Rodney model was produced until '63 or 4, so since I was born in 1962, I am counting it as a near birth year watch. Stay safe everyone. Remember, even sheltering in place, we are the lucky ones.

    Some color for the wrist of Mrs. Allwoundup today.....the photos don't do justice to the depth of the enamel work. The watch probably dates somewhere between 1887, when the Swiss began requiring 0.935 silver cases to be punched marked with the "rampant bear", and the first decade of the 1900s when "pin set" movements became obsolete. The watch was likely originally sold into the German market, as evidenced by the "crown in the crescent" punch mark required by German regulation for silver products. The enamel work was likely done by high end jewelry manufacturer Kordes & Lichtenfels of Pfrozheim, Germany, as evidenced by the "K&L" punch mark on the interior of the case back.

    Again, (still). Three weeks on the wrist. Hard to put this 50-year old veteran aside. Accutrons were guaranteed when introduced by Bulova circa 1961, to run within one minute per month. Right off the bench after servicing (and a period of tuning) this veteran is running within 5 seconds per week. I might regulate a bit if I become motivated.

    This one has the Canadian 24-hour dial, and the original Kreisler coffin link bracelet.
