TIME for a different kind of Karma

Recommended Posts

I'm definitely a watch guy.....been repairing railroad grade pocket watches and mechanical wristwatches for many years. I still have over 20 high end pocket watches and several RR wristwatches in the collection. That's a beautiful watch, but quite possibly way to large for a small boned guy like myself. It's a fantastic karma though and very generous of you to offer it! You said no Mickey Mouse watches......   Circa 1934 and still running!

Is the perimeter of your watch a built-in slide rule?

Yes of sorts. 

 

Dive calculator?

Ah, so you can know why you suddenly find yourself piloting a glider, rather than a enjoying powered flight!  :-kxD

Great karma Rod! I’ve always loved watches.

 

I can’t believe that 4:20 is still available so I’ll take it!

Well sunovabeetch!

 

After a protracted battle getting the correct storage cell for the Citizen, it's FUBAR.

Thought it was sorted out, had a good reserve charge and reset.

 

But no, dead half an hour later. (Insert many bad words here)

 

SO, It's reset TIME.

 

How about this one instead?

Stauer "Graves '33"

All mechanical, no electronics to fail. Works without sunlight or DiLithium.

 

This is a 'replica' of a 1933 Patek Phillipe, the Supercomplication.

All dials are fully functional, automatic movement (self winding so long as you wear it), 33 rubies in the movement.

The only downfall is it has a stainless steel back, a window back to show off the movement would have been nice.

Time: 12:01

 

The Gold Seiko was my dad's first watch, he passed away 20 years ago and left it to me.

My youngest daughter sent it to Seiko and had it completely overhauled and presented it to me for my 60th birthday,

what a GREAT present.

2 Seiko mand  2 Tag Heuer.
