Tom Buchanan wore the perfect watch for shoring up with Daisy and Gatsby in that swelteringly posh New York Hotel during the early 20s before the mass depression...far away from the sweltering heat of the dust bowl. I had never seen such splendour...they all knew little of what was to come that decade. Not even Gatsby himself. (lovely watch...Nick.)

Morning,

Today it’ll be an uncommon brand, this German-made Soto Fleetmaster probably from the 1950s, with a 21j ETA 1093 and gold-filled case.

The “bird on the branch” logo on the case back is attributed to August Felss of Pforzheim. The spelling of “Tropicaliced” is unusual which I’ve only seen once before, on the back of a Rika-branded watch, coincidentally also their “Fleetmaster” model.

There is still a Felss Group in Pforzheim, founded in 1905 by Otto and Julius Felss originally to manufacture metal working equipment, and perhaps they were the forebears of the elusive August, about whom I can find absolut nichts.

Regards.

Starting day 8 here, novelty wearing off but only 4 more weeks to go, maybe, possibly, hopefully. :tumbleweed:
