    Flieger Friday with my AWCI Build a Watch 2.0 assembled pilots automatic with the ETA 6497. I loved the class, and am delighted by how much I enjoy wearing this watch!

    A good chance to wear some WWII time. Hamilton USMC issued 37102. Cal 2987. These are great watches, but the pivots on the balance staffs are terribly fragile. Tough to imagine them in combat.

    Cool beans! :thumbsup:

    Where and when did you go to the AWCI class?

    It sounds like you did NOT get ridiculously frustrated like I did...which is good. :D

    My built at AWCI ETA 6497-1 says “Hello!” and “Phlieger Phriday!”...

    I did the class in Portland, OR on 7 March 2020. It was my last activity prior to staying at home in Seattle, WA as my work office closed on 4 March.

    It was EXCEEDINGLY FRUSTRATING, but I loved every minute of it and my watchmaker, who is awesome, was one of the instructors so it was a GREAT DAY!
