Morning:)

Early start today, originally Cup match today was on the schedule, but now off to catch train across to @tick-tock-tittle-tattle way for Hosp visit, been waiting just over two years for a minor procedure, local hosp always full so off to one in a nearby area.

So this for a couple of days.

3133 Strela homage.  You can't beat the original, but this isn't too shabby.IMG_20200208_081433428(1).thumb.jpg.5427354567266e7304d7327e2f6373c2.jpg

I like this Dassari strap, it's not too floppy, because it's two-ply, but neither is it too thick for 'normal' spring bars.

  It's 20mm but forgiving enough to fill the 19mm lugs without buckling.

Morning,

Today it’ll be this Everite which, along with Helvetia, was one of the “sole UK distributor” brands of H (for Harriet, incidentally) Samuel, the Jewellery retailers established in 1862. 

This one runs on a 17j AS/ST 1950/51.

Regards.

SEIKO 5 DX MADE SEPTEMBER 1967 (6106-8000) ON VINTAGE BAMBI BRACELET

I have chosen not to refurbish this watch as it came off the production line in Japan as I took my first breath in Dryburn Hospital Maternity Unit in the beautiful city of Durham.

It runs a little slow (just like me), it has dents and scratches (just like me)... it is my watch twin! Every collection needs a birth watch.

I hope your procedure goes well at Dr Grays today, a nice watch to wear for a couple of days.

I am not a big fan of hospitals so I hope you get out of there pronto, and you hop, skip, and jump out of the place.

All the best matey....let me know if you need some grapes and a get well card bringing in. :biggrin:

Interesting, I was looking at 64 Seikos, they do seem reliably datable (missed a 64 benrus front loader through haggling lol) but went for an early Poljot in the end.  It is nice to have a birthyear watch.  I also found a model that I owned when I was 11 or 12  as my first 'grown-up' watch, ironically from @scottswatches

I think I'll give it an airing tomorrow.
