    Yes it's the 2nd version logo for the Tudor issued watches. Same logo carried over to the newer sapphire Tudors and the Omega Constellation Philippine Airlines. The latest issued watches started around 2007 and were Tag Heuer Aquaracers but the logos moved to the case back which was produced flat by Tag for Philippine Airlines. We have one of those too and I will have to dig it out and post a pic :thumbsup:

    A typical dilemma fo a watch collector to wear. Which ONE to wear. The Spaceview since it developed a problem on a recent camping trip. It commenced stopping and starting! Very out of character for this watch since I put it into service, earlier this year. After phasing it several times, I hadn’t solved the problem. So I stripped it and conditioned it. No joy. Still acted the same way. So this morning, I got out my 40-power microscope to check on the index jewel, and pawl jewel. These jewels are 10 thousands of an inch long, and 4 thousandths of a inch wide. They operate the index wheel which is 95 thou. in diameter, and have 300 teeth around the perimeter. How these two jewels present to the index wheel is extremely critical. So after an hour or so, I succeeded in making a microscopic adjustment to he angle of the pawl jewel, re-phased it, and so far, so good.

    The Omega date at 6, caliber 355, bumper automatic I have worn continually now for about two weeks. This one also has been a challenge! It is little wonder to me how vintage watches end up being retired. If an owner had to pay someone like me to coax one of these old babies back to life, the watch would have been retired, or worse. Thrown out!

    Wearing the non-running, but beautiful ‘49-er.

    Reference 2493, a jumbo bumper caliber 332

    Who needs a running watch when you always have the cell phone anyway :taunt:

    I actually rarely use my cell phone for the time, I habitually look to my wrist first, but I have been late a few times when I forget to rewind my manuals!

    Hockey season again. Stinky gloves and pads left at my front door by people I barely know. I fix them fast to get rid of them. The mask helps with the fumes from the glue and with the smelly gear. 9623CF44-2CE9-4B5F-916A-02F4EA9918CC.jpeg 7B8071E2-0A29-4356-946E-BA77EC4325F3.jpeg D1FAFCE0-71FC-4FC0-B157-D7604FF0CFFF.jpeg 8DAF7B2F-14CC-4574-9146-1F0FF6A09F13.jpeg FCA298F9-5743-4BDE-9606-BC2B88B23380.jpeg 353B2C8E-23DD-4509-9034-3C3ACF63FFFE.jpeg
    Quick patch job (10-15 minutes).
