    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.

    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.

    Summer? Four months and counting, by my calendar.

    In the meantime, a song of summer . . .



    . . . to tide us over.

    :cool:

    Hoping for a quiet night, but will stay well-caffeinated just in case :).

    Not on my wrist today, though, and probably not for weeks - the initial timing test indicated poor performance.

    Today's watch is still . . .

    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...
