Pierce mono-pusher chronograph, in-house Cal. 130 by Leon Levy. Telemeter scale graduated in Great British Miles!  I believe his dual-pusher chronos were used by the RAF.

Morning,

Some years ago, I bought a Konak-branded watch in kinda odd surroundings, never expecting to find another one. That is, until today’s effort appeared on the ‘bay in recent years and although being offered as a complete wreck, my first, and quite different, one was pestering me for a chum.

A couple of images are attached for anyone interested in the before and after, and it now runs really quite well on its totally unremarkable replacement Baumgartner 34 movement. However, the Konak brand was, and still remains, a mystery to me.

Regards.

Morning all...today I'm wearing  this rather strange looking 1950's Swiss animal.

Have a great Sunday guys, and stay safe.

I’m finding Day Dates essential at the moment - so today (and for the rest of the week) it’s my Tissot PR516GL

That's 'different', if we are going to play 'top trumps' of weird watches we should maybe start a Weird Watches thread. :biggrin:
