Beautiful Tuesday morning here in NY.
Traded a Seiko diver for this from some wierdo American serviceman in Cebu City quite a few years ago. Had to get Jack's help at IWW for the parts to get it back up and running. The dial actually had green mold on it from getting flooded due to the crown seals and threads. Miraculously it cleaned back up fine.
Fossil hunting at a beach I last visited 30 years ago.
ST1 for Tuesday.
At the correct angle, words just disappear.
It’s losing about 2 seconds per day. Put it on a different strap, waiting for a Jubilee bracelet to arrive by slow boat from Florida. Yay, USPS!
At this rate, it should be here by Xmas.
Edit: I didn’t know I was going to follow a post of @Mad Dog electrocuting himself!
Hey, it’s only a Speedy Tuesday. Easy does it.
Wow! Hard to find those with such a nice dial!
Wife taking an MRI. “Watch after my watch” sure!!!
This week's daily wearer:
The sunlight coming in the window warmed it up a bit. The dial is a bit whiter and opalescent . . .
The rehaut or outer flange is a bit grayer and has texture to it.
Below one can see a lighting difference left to right . . .
Still further below is the kind of photo that, while it shows that the subdial hands are not black, but rather polished metal, one sees a bit of a wash-out effect.
Must be Tuesday, hopped into the elevator with a chap that was also sporting a speedy!!
He thought mine was old b/c of the Uncle Seiko Flatlink bracelet...
Took a picture of my Citizen WR-200 pilot watch at the local airport.
It brings back lots of good memories watching the small Cessna and Piper planes take off.
Brunch with the wife.
