I`ve always felt that the 17 to be a superb watch sold at a truely bargain price, if it had a `famous` brand name on the dial I bet it would have sold for triple the money on the high street :rltb:

I suppose this is not famous enough :D :

Seeing as this thread now seems to be live again I thought I should check in. Recently received my first, but certainly not last, RLT. The 17 is a beautiful watch and believe it or not the biggest in my meager collection (mainly British pin-pallets). Love the old style dial and hands, it is very like a smaller, knotted lug Waltham that I have been trying to get cleaned up for a while.

Anyway, some (poor) pictures of #7 - now happily getting plenty of wrist time in the colonies.

and the obligatory wrist shot - could not avoid reflections outside.

Looks great on that Fleiger :)

Yes, thanks. I can't take credit though - that's how it came and I could not think of anything that would suit it better. The chunky Jurgen's is over 3mm thick and complements the somewhat bulky case well.

Got the watch mainly for the dial but I must say that the crown really suits it. Not so huge as to get in the way but it has a real presence and looks like something to be used rather than just for show - easy to wind too even with my fat fingers.

Cheers,

BB
