Decided to come back on the forum and block whoever I need to. Anyone who doesn’t like my posts can do the same Zenith Stratos today:

Speedy reduced today:  

Good morning chap's. I am not buying any more watches. [emoji17] Well maybe the odd one or two. [emoji16]

Vostok Komandirskie 1965 for me while I try and psyche myself up to start painting the hall

Morning,

This 1930s Inventic with blued hands and screw heads, is another from my watchmaker’s magical “discards” box and one of the earlier (1915) of many brands registered by Eduard Kummer's Ebauches Bettlach as discussed here by Honour:

 

Today’s effort runs on an EB 698 which in other non-Kummer brands also sees service as the AS 698.

Regards.

Early Snowite metal version of the Rolex Oyster case used for the Rolco and Unicorn branded versions.

The strap looks OK in the pictures but I am still looking - but because the lugs are horizontal rather than angled it needs to be very flexible if a one-piece is to be used.  I heard silk watch straps were a thing.

I`ve probably said this before but I think these make a rather good couple...

 

Laco Model 862014, ETA F06 & Orient CEM58001B (Slide Rule), cal. 469 21 jewels

1255207040_ORIENT--LACO-DSC_0054.gif.4495825d825a192ea32cda642c90b50a(1).thumb.gif.c44013bcf736f0b77727d74b2d890550.gif

:biggrin:

I like the Laco & have had a couple in the past - lovely case design but too big for my 6 3/4" spindle hence me selling them. Good to see one again though :clap:

I'm wearing Borealis Oceanaut again - my brass/bronze watches (I own an Armida A7 as well) are getting all my wrist attention at the moment. So much so that I'm thinking of having a cull of my other watches. I also have a couple of incomings - both covid delayed unfortunately :( - so could do with clearing the decks a bit.

Hope you all have a good week :thumbs_up:
