Back to 'old faithful Smithy' today. Bought on a whim as I was suddenly hit by 'explorer-itis' and couldn't drop 5k on a 'real' one if I could even find one. Even these can be a bit tricky to get hold of, especially this 40mm version but I got lucky. 36mm version is more popular and has more versions (dial colours / designs) but with my mammoth wrists I can barely pull off the 40mm, a 36 would be far too small.

Watch itself wears lovely (clasp is a bit bulky for some but I love the adjustability) quality is exceptional for the price. A very easy watch to like if you get the 3-6-9 explorer bug.

Morning,

Today will be this Ingersoll from around 1930, with a silvered dial and 34mm polished nickel plated carré- shaped case.

This effort  is a product of the long ago association with Junghans of Germany, being driven by the Junghans Cal. J53, previously identified as simply the Cal.13’’’ which came from the Junghans factory in Schwenningen whilst their better, jewelled movements were produced at the Schramberg plant.

Prior to being repurposed as a gent’s wristwatch, this calibre had also been known in the 1920s as “Miss” having been installed in pocket watch models for ladies, and also as “NOBRK” to promote the notion of its staff pivot being “so constructed that it is shock-proof and practically NONBREAKABLE”, not a claim which I intend to put to the test.

Although DOA with much of its hairspring wrapped around the top of the centre wheel, a loose balance bridge and a grubby movement as black as the Earl o’ Hell’s waistcoat, it’s now back to fully functioning, leaving only a replacement movement screw to find sometime.

Regards.

Sometimes extra time is a good thing.

Last summer, I put my Zürich Braungold up for sale. Nobody wanted it, which is a good thing as by now I would have had "seller's remorse". So much so, that I'm now thinking of "investing" further in the brand.

You rotate the crown to select Alarm, then use the pushers to set it. It's a genius movement.
