Looking up information on the vintage Mondaine brand, I found this and added it to the stable. Movement appears to be 17j handwinding FHF-ST 96, the same as the much smaller Camy I have. It came on a weird expanding bracelet that needs fumigating, so old leather for now.

Case is in a bit of a state underneath, but it keeps good time.

Morning,

Today’s Raketa could possibly date from the 1980s or equally possibly from last week. OK, that’s an exaggeration, but I haven’t the faintest idea when this thing was produced, or even if it should have been in the first place. Running on the 19j Raketa 2628.H movement, it is my only 24hr dial, which scratched that particular itch.

It measures a good 39mm across, all of which it absolutely needs in order to accommodate the various graphics and gee-gaws on the dial, one of which ШТУРМОВИК (approx. phonetic “Shturmovik”) presumably refers to the depiction of an attack plane.

Regards.

First time wearing it and I‘m absolutely in love. No logo, no date, just a perfectly clean Flieger.

Not worn this lovely Fossil for a while, so a good enough reason to give it an airing today:

My top half is attired for Skype meetings and my lower half for when I visit the plant rooms on an old ICI chem plant!

I did say 'pretending' ...

I wouldn`t bother, normality is overrated, far better to be weird like the rest of us :partytime:

Back to my Ulysse Nardin today. Tried a bit of a different angle and lighting to try and show the detail and finish that makes me love this watch so much. The  'teak' stripes on the dial (but with an unusual pattern) the applied, lumed indices and numerals. Skeleton hands with big lumed ends to allow the seconds, 2nd time zone and date to be read, the flashes of orange around the dial and chrome surrounds on the DT and date displays. Even the case sculpting, GMT pushers and serial number plate on the left side are fantastic.

The custom strap arrived today and I'm regretting my choices right away. The stitching is a bit much, and I should've gone for off-white or light brown instead of pure white stitching. But at least the Hamilton Khaki Air Race is getting an outing today after a long time.

It's a bit like new trainers.  The stitching will soon 'dull'.

I guess I'm just a very lucky husband. :-) I mentioned it a couple of times, but since she's not into watches at all I was utterly surprised by the gift.
