A relic of the Jewel Wars, this 35mm 1950s Mount Royal with an 80 jewels (kind of) Felsa 4002, 21 of which are broadly functional and 59 which, er, aren’t. I’ve no idea how many of these watches survive today or, indeed, were ever made but it “coulda been a contender” until the likes of Waltham, Orient, and Titoni climbed into the ring with their 100 (and more) jewelled efforts.

Of the two recorded makers of a Mount Royal brand, Choisi seems to be the most likely candidate for today’s curiosity, it being a product of the original company founded in 1929 before its demise, date unknown. The company name was seemingly reactivated in 2013 by a Singapore-owned  enterprise which, from what I can see, is largely producing retro-style watches along with homages based on the old company’s vintage models. 

Regards.

Buriram United are the top team in Thailand I believe. Haven’t been to a game there yet, but driven past the Chang Stadium

Well, I don't know what the hell has happened, but I've been wearing this one again today and am still loving it:

I think I must have been brainwashed or something............ :swoon:

Definitely going to wear something battery powered tomorrow though, just to return to some sort of normality around here :laugh:

Just got back in from walking the dog. 1991 Pulsar y 182. Its a sports watch in a fashion way being 50m. Scarcity now means they are quiet rare. 5cc03328bffacc2f2ffee61640aadd23.jpg
