Hebrews Ch. 13, V. 8

yep.jpg.35367743ab8061b8f3a314bc723068a2.jpg

1946 Omega Cal. 30.10

Neuchatel, Geneva, Kew, Rochdale

1946 was a very good year for Omega!

Case-back is chamfered and takes the 2mm leather strap, from Vintagewatchstraps, perfectly, over a pair of 1.3mm single shoulder spring bars.

The brandy coloured leather and the two-tone watch both hail from Italy, though independently, of course.

Wishing you a great day.

Well, mission accomplished, I've worn a different watch every day so far this year and have finally reached the end of my collection. Wearing a couple of the father in law's today since he has parked a lot of his collection here so starting off with this offering for the oldies thread. Seiko Lord quartz:

Morning,

A name which may be largely unknown, and which certainly isn’t recorded in any of the usual databases, this 1950s Amdex isn’t fooling anyone.

Everything about it, not least its Newmark 13’’’ movement, tells you that it was made by Louis Newmark’s original Croydon-based company, but whether intended as a stand-alone brand or as some product promotional job, that I don’t know.

Regards.

I think I definitely fall into the vintage era preference-wise.

Today I'm wearing my slightly odd 1976 Seiko Hi-Beat automatic.  There a few things abut this watch that are slightly unusual (I've seen very few of this style, which uses a calibre 2205 movement, as used in the lady divers of that era), one being that it's a front loaded movement.  I haven't actually tried looking at it, as I'm not sure what to expect - must be a smidge awkward, as watch repairers charge extra to service front-loaded movements.  It also has a mechanism I've personally not encountered before to change the date, in that you pull the crown out to the same stop as for moving the time, but flick the crown out and release it to move the date forward one.
