  1. Still wearing this old thing... Oh, sorry. Ha. I didn't realize we were only posting oddballs.
  2. Good advice, thanks. Okay, I'll just leave it alone, then.
  3. Is it worth trying to do? I've never tried to do anything like that. And I donlt want to mess around and screw the thing up. I have a 1974 Bulova Big Block still in the packaging and I believe never worn. Apparently it was someone's retirement gift from the company they worked. I bought it a few years back for some reason that I cannot particularly explain. You all know how that goes, I guess. Anyway, I'm probably gonna flip it with the rest of the stuff I'm clearing out, I'll never wear it, but I'd like to remove the engraving prior. Thanks for input.
  4. A green Rolex wallet and a silver Bulova thumb drive. Oh, and a really nice Hamilton Key chain. The thumb drive and the key chain are Baselworld stuff, the wallet I got when I asked the sales rep if he had anything laying around. Though, I didn't ask for the wallet specifically. I just asked if they had anything they could throw in the bag with the watch.
  5. I don't generally wear anything worth more than a thousand dollars while I'm out and about. Depending on where I'm going, I might slip on something a little more expensive. I've never had a probem and I don't even try to hide it. I guess it just depends on where a feller congregates. I've just been wearing one of my '88 Timex beaters lately, though, with one of Carl's straps on it. It works for what I need. I've got three of em, so I wear the one with the most scratches on it. I've been mainly in the garage wrenching on stuff anyway.
  6. Of what? The car? Here's a couple. I replaced the top, though. The one on there in the picture is the old one. Now I have the stock glass one.
  7. Oh, I see. I haven't been on in quite a while. Like a dummy, I got into a more expensive hobby. Which needs new headers and an exhaust replacement. Heh heh. Thanks for telling me, though. Appreciate it.
  8. I was gonna put my '51 Bulova Thayer and my Bulova Moon Watch Highlight Set and a couple of new Lunar Pilot Bracelets up for sale, maybe some other stuff I no longer want, too, but I can't access the classifieds. It says I need 50 posts but I've long since already had 50 posts.
  9. Now that I'm getting my health back my view on life has changed. Particularly what I do with my free time. I've been spending more time tinkering around with my Corvette. It's enjoyable. And I'm outdoors, even if the weather isn't the best this time of year. I might buy another Corvette this year some time. I dunno. I always had a thing for the C3. Will see. Odd as it is, I really only wear my old Timex watches now. Remember the racing ones from the 70s? Those ones. I walked in my room the other day and said to myself what the heck do you need all of these watches for? Heh heh.
  10. I'm wearing the 51 Thayer this Christmas Eve morning. I don't often put the original strap back on it, but I dressed it for Christmas since it'll be our last Christmas together unfortunately. Its going on the bay afterward. It almost pains me to do it.
  11. The movement is the Shanghai version of the Valjoux 7753 in a 316L SS case, 40mm in diameter and 16mm thick. Running seconds are at 9, minute counter is at 3, hour counter at 6 which actually tracks the hours, and is not a 12 hour subdial like many seagull chronographs. It beats at 28,8000 bph for a nice smooth sweep. It has a signed dial, crown and clasp. Also, a domed sapphire crystal with blue AR on the underside. I believe that Bernardino isassociated with Million Smart some how. I can't read the receipt or the cards, they're printed in Asian... Check out the dial close up...
  12. Today I had to go into town to the hardware store. It's about 30 degrees F, so I put on my Carhartt J001. So, then I was like, wait. Let's slip on a Hammy.
  13. I've been wearing this one for about two months.
