Full speed ahead today (well, almost -  28,800BPH). Off to town for breakfast with family. No light, so old pics of two of my more irregularly shaped watches.

For the morning:

Thank you.

Happy to say it is, waited a long time for the correct (verified), unadulterated one to become available.

Obtained it for less than what I was 'prepared' to pay.

Have become very fond of my example. :biggrin:

I think it's 1992. Pretty sure these are from late 80s and early 90s.
