Morning,

Shamefully, after what’s been posted already, today it’s this Ackro “De Luxe” (oh yes!) with its 1j Baumgartner 866. The brand isn’t recorded in the usual databases and whilst a cloak of anonymity isn’t particularly helpful, it’s perhaps understandable when it comes to things like this one.

Probably imported into UK by Gaumont Watch Co and is such rubbish that I’m afraid its once a year wearing doesn’t merit a new crystal.

Regards.

I've been wearing this 1961 66-8070 for a couple of days now. It's got a bit of wabi going on but I quite like that.

Pretty sure I can squeak this into the oldies, @scottswatches will back me up :yes:.

Proof, if any were needed, that you don't need a Cyclops for a date to be legible, nor a funny shaped date-slot to figure out the date when it's obscured by the minute hand.  Just a bit of elegance -

Unitas 6428.

I am reminded of a very fastidious chap, who cursed loudly once, on seeing a mark on the paintwork of his range-rover that anyone else would have needed a 3x loupe to spot. The polish on this is marvellous, but I am kind of dreading the first 'ding'!

I must get off to shave my stubble, if I'm going to start bandying words like 'elegance' around!

Just out of quarantine, after arriving in the post last week, this Citizen Homer Phynox with 17j Cal 0201 from Nov 1960, according to the dater. 

It came on a Condor expanding bracelet, but I think it needs the contrast of dark leather to set it off, so currently on a brown NATO.
