Tuesday's Terrific Time Tellers. WRUW


Recommended Posts

Got drunk and bought a new watch.

Meanwhile, this shouldn't run, but it does.  Cased by Selza SA, who I, along with other gifted scholars, believe were involved with the genesis of Harwood's first self-winding watch before Vogt bought into the company, and again in the evening of this bumper production, some time after Vogt had sent Harwood down the tubes (if the registration date of the brand is contemporaneous with its first use).

Running a little fast now, but nothing to be ashamed of, the movement dates to around 1930, and was fettled by the great JH himself (that's me - whether John Harwood was also once fiddling with the cogs under my dial is tantalisingly unknown, but oft his personal touch is thus ascribed).

The historic future of watches, envisioned for everyman, from museums to mortals, they ticketh ever and anon.  90 yr old train and rate.

Morning,

Today it’ll be this 38mm Stellaris from the 1970s and regarded as the second tier (after Tradition) of transistorised watches made for Sears & Roebuck.

Some models of this brand run on ESA movements, whilst this example uses the hacking 9j Seiko 3302A calibre with the crown between 2 and 3 and the image of which has been “borrowed” from our own Silver Hawk’s excellent resource.

Regards.

One of Rotary's finest quality "Les Originales" Swiss made range which means I've only had to crack it open twice: to replace an hour marker which was rattling loose inside, and then to reattach one of the subdial hands.
