WRUW - Friday 22nd May 2020

Nice - is that a variant of the harwood?  Bezel turn to set the hands?

The movement & case (American?) may be a Harwood but Organa were definitely not licensed to produce a similar product.

Only Fortis, Blancpain & Perpetual Winding Company (USA) were licensed to do so!!!
 

Have seen all iterations of this model, historical archives, along with John Harwood’s very first prototype.

Don’t take my word for it, send it of to Blancpain for verification & certification.

 

I’m out!

Dug this out of the bottom of the pile this morning. Not worn it for a very long time as my wrists were too large for the bracelet (boxes were left in UK when I came here):       Omega and Rolex

This one today. Stay safe people.

New in 1975 Grand Seiko

I was never really a Tag fan, my wife loves them, but this is a lovely piece. Beautiful, and very understated which i like, with a birthday coming up, there could be some hints dropped for this one.

I know quite a lot of people dont have much time for Tag Hueur...I really do love some of them though.

The Carrera also looks great  on a nice leather strap...but.... the bracelet is just so comfy!

Just changed into my only civilian (chrome cased) Sturmanskie

because I am reliably informed it is as per the watch worn by  Zhugderdemidiyn Gurragcha

He was a Mongolian Air Force Aeronautical Engineer at the time and a guest on the Soviet Space Programme, went on to become Mongolian Secretary of Defense.

I could not find a used bracelet of this type for some time, only very expensive 'NOS' ones - usually with an unsigned clasp - but I eventually found a broken one on the Bay with enough spare links to fix it up to suit my wrist and discard the broken links.

Ive had a look and the leather looks lovely, but Im with you bracelet all the way. Also helps that they do it in a 39mm (my sweet spot). 

And its a weird thing, my missus has a couple and loves them, but Ive always favoured Omega, never quite got the Tag bug, but I hadnt known the Carerra exisited to be honest.

and the garmin 735xt for the cycle there and back. Not allowed in the office. Old pic as the windy ride home means I’m too tired to be bothered taking new ones.:Snore:
