This is back on the wrist day fresh from having a service. Found out the movement is a sellita watch movement. Feedback was still in very condition still had plenty of oil and not so sticky not bad for 6 years!.

Next service in 4 years.

A change into this whilst I tackle the greasy marks on my chore jacket with some cleaning rags, before it goes in the washing machine with detergent and a couple of dishwasher tablets!

Not too happy about my jacket actually getting dirty, despite the fact that is its purpose.  Pretty sure I could'a got the kids to clean up in the old days, for a Mars bar and a trip to Blockbusters. And I could have supervised from a safe distance.

If you can get my kids to clean up I’ll buy you a Mars Bar and take you to Blockbusters.

Child slave labour is getting rather expensive.. costs in my days used to be..

1. Get to stay up and watch Dave Allen or Spike Milligan..

2. (see 1.) & Monty Python. 

3 (see 1 & 2) plus having choice of either.. pick the Betamax rental movie from local shop (there was over 30 movies to choose from!!!).. or.. choose which channel of the 3 available from 7.30pm until (see 1.)

Of course.. very difficult tasks would provide payment of a fantastic new plastic football that would burst within 3 hours of play.. but it was 3 hours!!!!

This is a great dial - I know I have said that before, but the depth from the lume plot layering and indices, it's a work of art, like a collage version of The Splash!

Morning, jalopy for the garden, elapsed time bezel to co-ordinate tea breaks. And snack breaks.  And listening to a bit of radio breaks.

I am sorry Jet, but it's pretty clear someone let you loose on this with a tube of lume paste and a felt tip.

These can get a bad press but that looks pretty slick to me - I like a bead blasted finish (it reminds me of the 'parkerised' Benrus watches that were GI in Vietnam.

I like this because my team in the Subbuteo league was Wolverhampton Wanderers!  The old-gold and black ...  although they did have a spell in tangerine too.

That is spotless, and great brushing on the case - I very nearly bought a super-compressor the other day, but the crown had been swapped out for a replacement during a service (I saw pics of the watch at the watchmakers, and the original was still on, but perhaps it was U/S).  Anyway, it's all about the crowns, yours look the part.

Formal dressed today for travel. Black shirt, black watch. Sorted.

I like a PVD watch, although yours is more tasteful than some I have owned - the only one in my collection currently is an 80s Sekonda, and the PVD on the bracelet was outlived by the proverbial prawn sandwich, yours has done much better!  Got my eye on a Glycine combat tho'.

Not quite sure what PVD is tbh.. but that watch is from 1970-ish, was it out back then? Oh ok. I just read up on it a bit. This one might be DLC considering its age. The strap is a modern replacement but close to the orig as I could find. The orig had dots, this one has stripes. 

Hey, its cool learning new stuff each day.

No nonsense quality - I do sometimes think my watch collection is complete - then I see a Stowa!

Squale 1521

I am glad to see that the new Squale is following in the footsteps of the original brand, with ISO compliant designs and super WR - the only dive rated chronograph I had was a Squale.  Nice to see the crown tucked away.

I wound and set this 8 days ago, worn it for 7 days from 8 and checked the time this morning, absolutely to the second spot on.

Proves that watches can look neat on a NATO strap, and I really like the hand length - so satisfying when you have an accurate watch and the minute hand is stalking the graduations so exactly!  Does it hack?  My most accurate watch doesn't, so the seconds hand is always 20 seconds 'in front' of the miutes hand (which is bang on).  That's why the first rotating bezel was invented- you probably read - so navigators could line the 0/60 up correctly with the seconds hand, since they could not stop the seconds hand at '12' to synchronise it.

Showers passed over, on the way back through the park from the grocers, so time for an impromptu picnic I think.

Although I didn't actually go shopping for a picnic, what've we got? Hmm..... Victoria sponge and fresh orange juice, the picnic of champions!

Wow Jet!  That proves that watches can look great on a NATO strap *and* a leather bund!  Talk about two birds with one stone.  :tongue:

Another Mondaine, handwinding FHF-ST 96. Had my second Covid jab yesterday and feel like I have a mild dose of flu today.

Dial looks in quite good nick, and I'm guessing the minute hand curves a bit at the end?  Interesting I can't see the country of origin from this angle - is it tucked away at the bottom?

Hope you feel better tomo.

@Jet JetskiYes, it does hack pal, ETA2824. I love this NATO, it has really flat keepers and the band quite thin and stiff making it look neat.
This is my gateway watch, it has a lot to answer to! :biggrin:

TBH cooking or parking is usually the only time my bezels get used, but on this occasion it was for timing students break time while virtual teaching. I have been known to forget about them. :rolleyes:

My most accurate watch was a 2824-2 -except the date has decided to change 6 hrs out ha ha ha.   And no I didn't try to quick-set it at the wrong time - I think it is the interface between the movement and the big date module.  Service!  Trouble is, when it comes back from the service, it may not be as accurate any more (which is why I put off servicing it, and probably now why the date is playing up!)  But yeah, 2824-2 movements can be bang on.  My Ball chronometer is a Ball-fettled 2824.  It's also on my wrist as we speak on a similar light grey NATO, mine's from CWC. I did notice you had got a neat tuck on yours. I'm training it to fold in a new place as I must have lost some weight.

Yes, minute hand curves and Swiss Made is right at the edge of the dial. Is that significant?
