    Decided to kick it up a notch today. Very dressy redial vintage Vostok. You know when you buy a twenty dollar watch from the Ukraine shipping included the quality is real. Although this JBL Bluetooth speaker my wife won in some company BS thing has some crazy sounds, nothin left to do but smile smile smile m C947B99A-ACFE-4D64-B571-CC987546D496.jpeg 2D611237-D6BA-4C1D-BECE-C09090240352.jpeg

    Actually, that was post 3000. When I joined OF I doubted I’d make 200 :)

    "understated, laid-back, and unlike a brand new Submariner, it’s not an obvious choice, which I always find a bonus"

    We don't have those where I live. The highways are too narrow and twisty, the sleeper cabs can't make it out here.

    I’ve put the collection away, and dug out this artifact. This is one I serviced for a friend about 5 years ago. After I finished it, I phoned him, and he said he didn’t want it back, and that I could keep it. So it has become the watch I wear when we take off on a camping trip. I don’t call it a “beater”. I don’t have any beaters. But I would be less upset if something cataclysmic happened to this one, than if I had an accident with one of my collectibles. This watch is 22-years old..........much newer than most of my collection. It was made in an era when name brand watch companies used good quality movements in their watches. Nowadays, you open up a name brand watch the customer likely paid a grand for, and you find a ten dollar movement. Hang onto your collectibles, friends. Affordable ones of any quality are getting harder to find.

    Last minute swap out, I just picked this up from my WM 10 minutes ago after its lens change.

    Bought it last week with scratched up lens but it was running well with in COSC specs, just 3 seconds out over 3 days!
    Remarkable for an unserviced watch or even a fresh service so I didn't opt for a service just a new lens.

    Todays new lens
