  5. Morning, French-made Mardor for today, a brand which was related to Kelton and thereby to Timex. This one runs on a Timex M22 movement, possibly sent over from the Timex plant in Dundee. Regards.

  8. First watch purchase in a while, so home from work with the Seagull 1963. First impressions are I like it a lot although I’m not sure it’ll stay on the Milanese bracelet. The blue hands are difficult to capture with my phone.

  16. The man from TNT (FedEx) turned up today with my first new watch for almost a year. I like small manufacturers, what could be called high quality and genuinely in-house capable micro-brands -- hence my entries in this section about Moser (ca. 1500 pieces per year), Grossmann (ca. 400) and Dornblüth (about 200). This time I was looking for something different, and in conversation on this forum with the usual suspects. @WRENCH suggested a Benzinger. I knew nothing of the brand, but had always wanted a "guilloché main" watch, so I pursued the idea. After a long telephone conversa

  26. Nice man from UPS arrived earlier with my latest Swiss acquisition... Some may recall that I had shown interest in the launch of this model a couple of months back. After much hunting, chatting with colleagues in Switzerland, I eventually was put in contact with a retailer in La Chaux-de-Fonds, & a deal was struck. MILUS Snow Star. Case: 904L SS, Width 39mm, Depth 10mm, Lug to lug 46mm. Dial: Silver sunray-brushed pattern dial, applied indexes, polished dauphine hands. Cal: ETA 2892-A2 (Top Grade), 21 jewels, 28,800 VPH. Strap: textile with leathe

  30. I haven't worn a watch today. I fully understand there may be some sort of petition to have me removed from the forum. ...or burned at the stake. So here is a picture of a watch that I didn't wear today, and wouldn't wear any day.

  32. Baltic have added a brushed steel 12 hour bezel to the Aquascapthe , giving the watch a more "toolish" look . I think Baltic are one of the best micro-brands on the market and I think this model will sell well . https://wornandwound.com/baltic-adds-a-new-bezel-to-the-aquascaphe/

  33. Lovely watch that, Alan. And your thread-head with those excellent pics goes nicely with the piece I wrote for the Forum giving some history of the Milus Snow Star, posted in my topics section on 25 April.

  34. What I particularly appreciate is the fact that Mr Benzinger is carrying on traditional skills with traditional tools and equipment, some of which will no longer be available, especially the "guilloché" machine. When you watch the parts of the movement being "skelitionised" with what looks like basic tools, but with such skill, and confidence, is interesting if not mesmerising .

  37. I accept that I’m probably one of the few who share a similar view to yourself, family heirlooms (regardless of value), along with gifted pieces, have no monetary value whatsoever. The sentiment with which they were given is irreplaceable & priceless in my eyes! Would probably sell someone else’s kidney first though...

  39. Yup, every watch I own has a new strap put on almost immediately. Usually because I order my watches with a bracelet if there’s an option, but I don’t like bracelets, so change for leather, rubber or NATO. I think that that way I’m maximising any resale value, should I ever sell. My Marathon MSAR came on a rubber strap with no holes, so you can fit it perfectly. I didn’t want to mark it though, so off it came and put up safe and sound in a box of safely wrapped watch straps.

  41. Nice addition, as already said, very classy looking. That's what's good about this forum, you hear of brands you've never heard of before, off to read @Always"watching" thread on Milus.

  42. @Roger the Dodger just ignore the 7T32 watches in the far left, there are two that are the same (blue with silver, bought one forgetting that I already owned one as a project) the silver grey with blue chapter ring and chrono hand is rare, I haven't seen another one like it. The bracelet is slightly different and I think this is due to it being an early model (1999) most of my other 7T32-7C60's are from 2000 onwards. Sorry about the poor quality images. (Motorola phones have terrible cameras)
