Good morning! Vintage Omega Dynamic mk1 'Bullseye' circa 1969

This today

Posted Images

Painting today (GLOSS!!!)

So no watch today other than the ghostly imprint of where a watch once was, and pale skin where the sun doesn't reach.

I'd normally wear my Casio 'beater' while doing DIY, but no watch deserves a glossing.

Have a great day guys (when I say guys, I actually include any 'gals' in that term, and any person who does not associate themselves as male or female )  Was that pc enough? :biggrin:

Should have been this, could have been this, would have been this, but gloss mist from a roller???.

Morning :)

Was going to wear this the other day but it had stopped (been in the dark for a while), so put in the light for a day to charge, but didn't work. Left it for a few days and still didn't seem to work. Started thinking might have to go to the expense of getting a new movement, but then when looking at troubleshooting problems with solar chronos found out you need to reset the movement before it will work again, hey presto worked. Breathed a huge sigh of relief, really didn't fancy fiddling with the small sub dial hands with my eyesight these days. :laughing2dw:

Not seen this rascal for a while, still ticking, Harwood powered Organa (by Selza SA):

IMG_20200924_083504935(1).thumb.jpg.1362c8808cad9e51bd0950497de50185.jpg

These crop up with brands from Selza registered as far as currently known between the twenties and forties, which ties in with Stern's assertion that Selza were involved from the start, 'and after ' with production of Harwood powered watches.  Stern is the editor of Walter Flume's work to re-translate the book of erstwhile technical head at Rolex (Emile Borer) "Contemporary Watch Repair and Correction" back into German, so I am banking on him knowing his onions.  Interestingly, the word Automatic is always in the same font, regardless of branding.

Luxor and Solix branded, also by Selza:

So pretty good evidence of serial production.
