WRUW Dress down Friday- Time to break out the ...

Recommended Posts

Velcro!

31659 : hacking version of the 3133.  Bit of corrosion on the blued hands but c'mon, it's dress down Friday!  So, fast-wrap strap for when I change into my 3rd-best spacesuit later, for a little extra-vehicular activity.

What are you breaking out? (Watch related please, there's an off-topic forum for advice on your friend's rash :laugh:...)

I dress down every day but.. lately I've been wearing some vintage wrist wear. Trying some new straps for a new lease of life. Today, ERC, German, little else known.  Long live the golden oldies!

Bracelet looks cool too. I managed to get an old stelux off the bay with the curved ends 19mm to fit the case on my 6619 to complete the 60s look. There were only 2 for sale on the bay. Been on display in a jewellers shop for years apparantly.

Morning,

For today it’s this 1960s UNO made by Dimier Frères. Runs on a 17j FHF 73.

Regards.

ive owned a couple of unos from the 60's really well made and under appreciated with some interesting swiss movements. I can see where IWC got their numerals from for the Portuguese now

So this is my beloved SARB033. I have quite a few watches (I made the rookie mistake of buying loads of cheap watches when I first got into this hobby earlier last year). Some are nicer than others. However, for some reason I am totally drawn to this one. I think it's absolutely beautiful. I wear it much more than the others. I only wear the rest in order to get some wrist time out of them.

This is a new brown strap I bought yday. What do you guys think?

Ultimately I want to buy a Grand Seiko or two, but even then I don't think I want to neglect my SARB033! Maybe I'll just stick with this for the foreseeable future!0a8d20a55bd5216e2eb4e26adabd8c4b.jpg

Its a classic and looks good on the croco. Have a look at some of the 60s and 70s hi beat grand seikos before plumping for a modern. They are really cool.
