Monday 12 APRIL WRUW?


Recommended Posts

I reached in to my case this morning for this..

The minute hand is bent, the date doesn't change, the bracelet is a bad ebay fake Boctok. It's quartz and I think it looses about 2 minutes a day.. it's my brown little ragged eared mongrel and will chase the blues away.

Have a Happy Monday folks.

Morning,

Unrecorded in the Mikrolisk database but not a completely unknown brand, this 1950s Tusal with its 15j Arogno 120 gets an airing today.

More modern-styled examples of a Tusal brand are known, but with a different wordmark, perhaps suggesting that the original name became dormant and was then revived in more recent times.

Regards.

I would guess that many will see this as a plain, boring watch, but it has a special meaning to me.

My Grandmother left some money to all of the grand kids when she passed 18 months ago, and I used it to purchase this after a long deliberation over which watch I would buy to remember her.

Yes it is a bit plain, and I would imagine that if you had 100 kids draw a watch 95+ would draw my Frederique Constant, but it is beautiful in its simplicity in my opinion.EA4VXlK.jpg

I don't know much about movements, but this either has a decent movement or I got lucky with a very well performing poor movement, as the accuracy is excellent, easily in line or better than some of my more expensive watches.

I love the smooth profile, a little like my datejust from the side, it has that feel that it was sculpted from something larger rather than just machined.

Whilst I do like a display back to be able to see the movement, this watch has a solid back that makes it feel like its engine is a secret between me and it.

It is my Frederique Constant Classic, and the name is exactly right and fitting in my opinion, it will be a keeper and remain with me forvere.

:thumbs_up:

Squale 30 ATMOS GMT 

Wow... this green GMT dial is phenomenal, :notworthy:  I love it   :thumbs_up:

Too much bored at home, I tried to make a canvas strap for my blue dial, made of 6 rolled layers of Levis jean LoL... I used the same light orange colour of the Levis jean stitching, but with a super solid 2mm kevlar tread :)

@Jet Jetski Are you still hibernating?  It's April, not February!

No one else commemorating the anniversary of Juri Gagarin's inaugural space flight today?

Sorry it was -3 on my thermometer and felt like February!  Slight error there in choosing my auto-complete post title.  My best Gagarinskie has been re-homed, and my second best is being serviced.

I have changed into an old watch though.  Ca. 1938 Audax Fortissimo, Fortis signed hand-winding bumper.
