'Benson' having an early night so a CWC it is
Speedy Tuesday! And my new book...
Bought this yesterday, automatic Hafis Aquamaster, runs well but missing the crown.
Opened it up for a look and it has an gorgeous untouched pristine 21 jewel SU2472 ( ETA 2472 movement) the black dial is as it left the factory.
Bought at auction for $10.00, money well spent!
So its off to my watchmaker for a service, replacement crown and a lens polish.
Just hoping he might have an original crown as these watches were very popular here in New Zealand in the 60's and 70's and were the go to quality prize to win on Television shows back in the day.
glad I bought this 20 years ago.....
the hand crank radio not the watch!
minimal electrical power so going old school for music entertainment saving iPhone battery.
when’s summer, again?
oh, yeah, cool watch, too.
Really happy with my first Grand Seiko... One of the most handsome faces in the whole watch world
Haven't had a chance to take post-worthy pics yet, Mark . . . just retrieved the package from FedEx last night.
Hope to have decent pics in a day or two, depending on when I can get to the coast.
Oops, old browser window got me.
Summer? Four months and counting, by my calendar.
In the meantime, a song of summer . . .
. . . to tide us over.
Hoping for a quiet night, but will stay well-caffeinated just in case .
Guinand E31 for today.
Here's what I could come up with indoors . . .
. . . using a jury-rigged light box.
Wow, that dial is gorgeous!
Not on my wrist today, though, and probably not for weeks - the initial timing test indicated poor performance.
Today's watch is still . . .
. . . the '72 GS.
Speedy Tuesday...checking in from Hooters...good times!
That’s absolutely stunning! Congratulations, Art! I’m looking forward to some wrist shots in the natural light!
Nice bracelet too!
We didn't believe you are ACTUALLY Dr. No but now that we see your sinister plans to keep all Omega Forum contributors in suspense we're re-visiting our initial thoughts...
