Hump day hooray! WRUW 20 Nov

Recommended Posts

It's the giveaway vintage automatic Rotary today, with many thanks to @andyclient. I am wearing it, just hopeless at wrist shots. Photo taken last night, after I'd resized it and the date changed.

Morning,

From the darkest recesses of my Cabinet o’ Clunkers comes an original, um, Original, in a 37mm 1970s-style case. Seemingly made by Constructa, the Mondaine-owned pin lever outfit and probably cased up in Hong Kong.

With exceptions about as rare as unicorn jobbies, almost anything showing a random number on the dial often, but not exclusively, in a circle, is going to be unbridled rubbish. However, with the seller wisely omitting any worthwhile description of this gem, I’d been intrigued to discover what exotic treasure lay inside. I can’t say I was particularly overjoyed, or surprised, to find yet another Baumgartner 866. However, it was cheap, very cheap, seldom a sign of la qualité.

My apologies to anyone else who’s daft enough to have one of these specimens, but it really is a bit of a shocker.

Regards.

Note: Since this photo was taken I have removed the clear protective plastic from the end links of the bracelet, which I hadn't noticed for a few weeks :laughing2dw:

Looks interesting and not a brand I know much about. Think I’ll have a read up!
