    Such a wide range of watches these days. Years back mostly Omega. But I do enjoy browsing on a Tuesday.

    24 hour dial.

    Earlier Saturday (today) I posted a picture of my German-made Laco wrist watch, mentioning that I had discovered another watch in my stash that has the same Durowe calibre 455 movement in it. Manual wind, shock resistant, 17 jewels, 10 1/2 ligne. This is that watch. There was no case back for the recently discovered one. This watch had been buried in my stash for at least 45 years. I spent some time today, trying to locate a suitable case back for the heavily worn gold plated case it was in. I gave up, instead scrutinizing my stash for a better case that suited the watch. Voila! I found one! This one is close to 34mm diameter, and it is a size I like. The dial on this one is marked Alanbury. A name that pops up on the internet, but a name I know nothing about, except that it was copyrighted in Canada until the mid-1980s when the copyright was not renewed. It looks better in this donor case than it did in the original one. A new, stylish Hirsch leather strap completes the look. This is not a watch to titillate the tastes of a case hardened, jaded collector with deep pockets, but it shows what can be done on a budget. I like it.

    A late-in-the-day change to test a new watch+ strap combo. I had a Sinn OEM 20mm non-tapered strap lying around that came with my Sinn 104, which had a tendency to drive the 104's top right lug into my wrist bone no matter the tightness of the strap (I'll leave a description of my strap solution for the Sinn 104 for another day). And, to make things interesting, I put a 20mm buckle and pin set from an unused Omega NATO strap I have (I actually own several Omega NATOs which remain unused because of the thickness of the strap weave) and put it on the Sinn strap for the Planet Ocean. So far this combo seems like a winner :)

    The Zontavia (as the Swedes call this one) Omega was calling to me, so I decided to take Miss Z out to my closest (5 minute walk) and favorite watering hole!

    That place looks kinda familiar.

    But I'm sure a lotta places look like that.

    Polarizing for some, but it's a keeper for me! :)
