  1. On this day in 2004 i rose at 3AM left my wife and children sleeping in our rented gite and made my way to Omaha beach to be on it at Sunrise , i remember wearing this watch as i used the alarm facility to back up my phone alarm , It was an amazing if somewhat sombre day during which i met and chatted too many veteran's , sadly each year there are fewer and fewer.....We will remember them.

  18. Dad's tatty old Lorus for me today. I remember him every day, but 6 June is always a special day that he never forgot, as its the day he trundled up Sword beach in a Churchill AVRE.

  25. Morning, This poor old Elco deserves to have been treated with a bit more care during its 80 years of life. Probably made by C. Ruefli-Flury & Cie (Era Watch Co) on the basis that they are Mikrolisk’s only Swiss attribution and their 1936-registered Elco brand has the same style of wordmark. It runs on a 15j Elco L105S, likely based on something like an AS 1158 but with a much modified bridge configuration. Regards.

  26. My final pair of the day & as they are still going well despite their advanced age I wouldn`t say they were bottom of the hill INGERSOLL CROWN, SWISS MADE (circa late 1920s/early 1930s) & (unnamed) FOREIGN (possibly made in Germany, circa 1930s)

  28. Honestly ..it does look a bit better in real life…..the Chenin des Tourelles is the street where Tissot started watchmaking.

  29. May be going out shortly so dressing the old wrist up a little, with this Cal. 40.10 bumper. 1946 was a very good year for Omega, in the battle for precision, and 75 years on this is still no slouch in the time-keeping department. The strap has been around the block a few times in different watches, now home to roost, 2mm Italian leather ('brandy') single pass, from vintagewatchstraps. Sobering to think though that the watch strap - although only leather - may well outlast me Maybe I should start using tack care products on my skin? HAGD JJ

  32. Morning Lot of great watches today , now i'm about to lower the tone, considerably. Away to do some work in the back garden, and after reading @Always"watching" Kahuna thread, thought I would dig out an old watch that was a trusty work watch back in the day, Got it in the 90s for approx £20/£30 and was a great servant and took a lot of punishment at my work, but kept going, although the original velcro strap is done, hasn't been on the wrist for a long time, but changed the battery and still ticking. Fine for working in the garden on a Sunday. If it & I keep ticking may make the seniors thread in a few years.

  34. Seem to have had a bit of a run on Iron Annies recently, curse Amazon and their random pricing strategy! So something different today: Hmmmm... what could it be??? Oh... Ok. Slightly odd but never mind. Looking pretty familiar.. More of Germany's finest (oh OK @yokel maybe not technically finest, but not bad) De-plasticked. and on wrist, gotta love a lumed logo. Bit of a mini collection coming now. Quite liking these things.

  41. Final day today. I am now firmly convinced that I can take this on a two week beach holiday as my only watch. so the experiment was definitely a success. Of course, it wouldn’t do for a busy working day. But this week I have found myself glancing less and less frequently to see what the time is, and I haven’t fretted about whether the watch is gaining or losing the odd few seconds per day. I just check it in the morning and it seems pretty much in the right place every day. And shirt wise, finishing the week with a few parrots.

  42. Too late done it ....for better or for worse I've made a new crown cover today & added a bit of shape/texture to it. I tried knurling it but it hasn't worked very well (it's better than it being plain though I think). I've glued it on to the existing crown using a drop of loctite 638 (very strong threadlock) which I've used on a some of my other lathe related projects without any problems. The crown still works fine - screws & unscrews, the date quickset works etc. I like it but think it'll look better when the crown tarnishes a bit
