Morning...   Snow Star Cal: ETA 2892-A2 (Top). 21 jewel. 5 adj.

Blue navy dial on blue suede strap ;)

Bit of digital wizardry from Seiko today. The G757-4010. An early example of LCD tech from 1980. Standard timekeeping. Dual time mode.

Citizen 8110A column wheel flyback chronograph. About 1970.


Rescued from Egypt.

It came on black leather but I think I have found the right pairing for this one-piece - it's like a glove in the concealed lugs.


Case is stainless, there is a 'gold' version but I have a thing now about not getting PVD watches.  For the moment.

This is the closest thing I have had to 'having a watch' for some time, as opposed to having a watch collection. Worn it for a few days now, but will change later when I go out.

From the box of French Obscurities comes this 36mm CBD from the 1940s with its 15j Cupillard 233. Mikrolisk attributes the trademark logo to Christian Bernard Diffusion of Paris who did, indeed, have connections with jewellery and watches although not, to my knowledge, as makers.

That present-day enterprise seems to be owned by far-Eastern interests and declares itself to have been founded in 1973 so is therefore unlikely to have had anything to do with today’s effort which was possibly assembled and badged up for a much earlier incarnation of the company by an unknown maker.

Seiko 6205-8940

Made August 1965

Cost: A little over £10.00

Value: Priceless



Yes the dial is past its sell by date, it is on an awful bracelet, but it always works, it is always accurate, and it always makes me smile when I wear it.

It is not high horology, it's not high anything, but it is a fantastic little watch with a rock solid movement that deserves some praise.

Have a great weekend guys!

H20! I've been racking my brains trying to remember this brand, thanks! Love the look of these. How do those big lugs feel/sit on the wrist?


Its the weekend! No dusty work, so on with the Deville Chrono
