Morning,

I'm still in pin-lever land with this 1950s Ostara made by Walter Ris of Grenchen, founded in 1945 and producing watches at least up until the 1970s before liquidation in 1997 and eventual dissolution in 1998.

Today’s effort runs on a 15j EB 1344, which many moons ago someone thought to show through a display case back, the only credible reason being that the original steel one had been lost.

Regards.

Does it tell N.S.E.W? I'm sure I had a digital watch as a kid that did. That one looks familiar.

I've got a little vintage handwinder coming that I'm hoping you'll be able to teach me the history of. :thumbsup:

The mod for this Casio arrived today so would be rude not to :)  The steel case adds a bit of chunk to it but it's still very wearable

Couldn't see the picture and thought it deserved to be seen.

Moved on to my CW C65 diver.

It's simple (much like it's owner) but I love it.

Couldn’t resist wearing this one

...and why would you be trying to resist wearing that one:thumbsup:

So in a "money isn't everything" choice, having now worn everything once this year I've got the entire collection to go at again and the one I fancied this morning was this. half price in the H.Samuel sale jazzed up with a cheapie strap from ebay (I say cheapie, worked out a bit more expensive due to being so impressed for the price I seem to have ordered another 4 in various sizes)

Had a frustrating wait for some straps to arrive for this nice VSA Chrono (strap was described as "used" but was fubar!) - Really pleased with this particular choice - The sailcloth fabric is a perfect match for the dial (imvho) ...
