Saturday Build Up WRUW?

Recommended Posts

Morning all, busily getting the tribe sorted and lunch packed up for a trip to Shuttleworth to see some planes, after last week's Ill-fated and cancelled Safari trip this will be the maiden voyage of the "Bricey Bus".

Timex for the preparations, day wear tbc....



Safari tickets rebooked for next weekend.

Today it’ll be this Union running on a 17j Peseux 7040. Probably dating from the late 1960s and made by Gisiger-Greder of Solothurn (Soleure), the original company operating from 1920 until the mid-1970s.

With its knackered crystal, missing its sub seconds hand and sporting a spaghetti balance spring, this was a bit of a saddo when it arrived but hopefully now slightly improved. The scratch on the dial I can live with.
