    Funny... I procrastinate clothes buying for months - even years - but I can buy a watch with two seconds notice...
    I am really not into clothes at all and buying them is close to torture. But every second year I have to do it and at that point I will buy everything at once - and lots of it. Rather buy a lot at once than torture often. Accordingly I also tend to go for timeless classics and old time high quality - it prolongs the period until next torture while at the same time not being totally off fashion wise... (I am a 50 year old white guy built like a tank - so no one expects much) :)::facepalm2::

    Please, pleeeeeeeease do not change anything having to do with dial and hands! That is pure beauty! I am normally not that much for patina but that piece is just beautiful.

    From Ranfft...
    PUW 60 From Ranfft Dated 1955.jpg
    PUW 60 On ebay almost all PUW 60s are chronometers (a striking success of my movement archive). This one is none, but it has the capability: 1955 the PUW 60 was regarded as the only German movement with chronometer capability. Probably the reason was that the movements were tested by the traditionally responsible Deutsche Hydrographische Institut Hamburg, while Junghans chronometers were tested by the PTB in Braunschweig.

    ...solid movement in this ol' girl!::love::

    I think I found the right strap for this one. Olive cordura seems the right touch of military feel to it.

    Pretty much all year long ballons fly from Del Mar and end up landing right in my neighborhood, frequently flying right over the house close enough you can chat with the occupants - my dog is the only one who doesn't like it:

    This is my daughter standing on the roof, no photo trickery just depth of field:
