Saturday evening and living the high life
Speedmaster water resistance holding up to the rigors of the children's science museum today.
It’s time for a rye, neat, of course.
Electro-Chron this evening....
I am stuck at home and change watches about 10 times a day. And now injecting all these cool old Seikos is only making it worse.
For my money, dials don’t come any prettier than a nice 68 trans.
I went for a hike today and happened upon a bear at the edge of the parking lot
… time for one last look at my ‘61 Seamaster
1960's Eaton's Solar.
Still enjoying this one. Not bad for 80+ years old.
"Ain't nothin' anywhere like a big black bear unless he's a mile away from you."
Gosh, I so badly want one of these! Love the history and design. One day. One day. Until then…
Old Viceroy for the evening...YaY!
Navitimer and a smoke. Crusty in all the cool places
Grey Old Rainey day outside today, better have a waterproof watch on......... well it was resealed and tested back in the early 90's.... whadda ya mean there is no guarantee
Beautiful evening in Vancouver B.C
Saw the sun hitting part of my backyard fence and thought photo op!!
Man I have problems...
Shades of my favorite color I have yet to see in this dial until now...
Taco patio reflections in the evening clouded sun:
Zodiac Seawolf, cal 70-72, from around early 1960's. Tail end of the usage of Radium lume, but you can see the big triangle plots at 3 - 6 - 9 - 12, the lume on the hands has all fallen away. Still good & hot according to the Geiger Counter, but only within an inch of the dial. Any further than 6" away & then you are down to just background.
Can see at about 2:30 on the dial where the hands had stopped for a long time & left behind a Radium burn.
Have always liked Zodiac, old & new, & I always thought the Seawolf is an icon for the brand. The dial on this piece is not in great shape, but the 70-72 movement still keeps time to better than 5sec/day (not bad for a 60 year old watch
