Morning,

This 90 year old from the time when Ingersoll had a working relationship with Junghans of Germany.

It has blued hands, a silvered dial, a polished nickel-plated case and runs on the 13’’’Junghans Cal. J53 which started life as “Miss” in the 1920s driving pocket watches aimed at lady buyers. This calibre was later known as “NOBRK” with Junghans claiming that its balance staff pivot was “so constructed that it is shock-proof and practically NONBREAKABLE”.

Today’s effort came to me with the movement completely seized, a loose balance bridge and a spaghetti hairspring but is now back to fully functioning with exemplary timekeeping. And I‘m rather fond of its refusal to give up the ghost.

Regards.

YEMA Superman (the cheaper one with their own in house movement) on a RIOS Apulia strap. Only recently put this strap on it, seems to have gone all 1970's on me, feel like I need a moustache and a Ferrari while wearing it.

I'll wear this brown Fossil quartz (with stuck date window) on its (upside down) fake Bostok bracelet today.

It looks like rain/clouds and this offering with its day stuck in the same day over and over on its odd/wrong bracelet will perfectly reflect my mood. :thumbdown:
