I don't want to sound like Mrs Bricey, but aren't you just a little premature?


Only marginally, just finished polishing my post and it's already gone midnight.  It might look like I just chuck my posts up ....!  But yes, if I start a WRUW thread I post a picture quickly then edit.  If you spend ages typing and choosing pictures and looking up info about your watch, by the time you get around to posting it, unbeknownst to you, someone else has come along and started the WRUW thread and we end up with two.  By spending as little time as possible starting the thread, the window of opportunity for two people to be doing it at the same time is reduced.

Have another picture.


Can you tell I took it through a magnifying glass?

Going a little further East today with this 1960s “cross-dial” UMF (Uhren und Maschinenfabrik) from the Shangri-La that was the GDR. 

The shading of the dial sectors change according to the angle of the light and it runs on a UMF 23, a short-lived (1961 – 1963) movement before being superseded by the easier and cheaper to manufacture UMF 24 series.
