Back to this one for me, having a nice chilled day    

This one for me today.

Having done the croco, in deference to all the guilloche and gilt hands, I thought it might be an idea to go a bit industrial because it is, after all, quite a chunk of watch, especially with the display back, so I put it on an old car tyre.

"No watch is strong unless it has within it's character antitheses strongly marked."  to paraphrase Blaise Pascal :whistle:

This complicated one today

I have the white dial version running awful slow - I changed the battery too and the case back was a swine! I'll have to take it apart again ....

The movement is as per a Frederique Constant model, but available on eBay. 

And the date pointer hand is just asking to get bent lol.

Technically speaking the Rover 75 was a heap of junk, like most Rovers. However, the MG version with the large engine is rapidly increasing in value. Always thought it looked quite nice though. As far as the watch is concerned, I would love a Steinhart, and perhaps one day I may invest

Technically speaking, both Rover and MG have the larger engines(2.5 V6) and both had the 4.6 V8, which was an American lump.

The diesels were/are BMW's own M47, so not a lot of rubbish there:toot:

Do try a Steinhart, very good value for money. They are now having to use Sellita sw200 movements as the ETA' are drying up.
