    Earlier this season my boat's speedometer sensor broke....
    6309 ws 1 20200817_162326.jpg
    ...and last week I installed a new one
    6309 ws 1b 20200817_162113.jpg
    Today was test day! Slap on the 6309-7040 that's only 2 years younger than the whole rig from 1979, drop the boat, and out we go.
    6309 ws 2 20200817_161700.jpg

    Result: Working speedometer again...woohoo!!!

    Thanks for this. I've been wondering how the SMP would look on that Nato.

    Nobody has said anything to me about my Casio, Seiko Sports 5, or Vostok Komandirskie. If watches that cost < $150 new don’t bring out the snobs, they’re at least under control. There’s a great Urban Gentry video about watch snobbery.

    I agree and will add something I read somewhere:
    "I wear a watch for my own enjoyment!"
    1) Entertainment
    2) Impressive technical details that I can look at and think......
    “Whoa, how did they do that?”
    3) a bit of jewelry.

    It applies to all my watches, from timex, to Citizen, to Omega and even my $50 Dakota radio controlled!
    Happy to see such a vast variety of amazing time pieces.
