          I agree, some watches don't even mind if they're missing a part... one less thing to worry about anyway imo

          beautiful! (Sarbie) eibraS

          I took that photo at the dealer today, put it on the yellow strap so my wife didnt have to deal with the deployant clasp at the airport. Man it is a nice watch but the leather i feel is too thick. With a thin NATO on it it took on a whole new dimension.
          REALLY looking forward to getting this back next week...luckily my wife flys out Monday and returns home Wednesday. Feel good friday indeed. I appreciate it more today than I did yesterday when i first tried it on. Have a great weekend everyone.

            Nothing wrong with going bezel-less Luther. If it's good enough for this guy.

              Notice, the truly famous watch in that same film, the Seiko APOCALYPSE NOW 6105 of Martin Sheen didn't have any parts falling off of it, and by all accounts survived entirely unscathed??

              Love the way the lume (radium?) has aged in the Cymaflex up top

              I'm wearing something that has a historical connection to the Heuer Autavia 7763 (Valjoux 7730) above in that both movements was originally designed by chronograph specialist Venus, who was later acquired by Valjoux. In the mid-1960s, Venus sold their manual-wind column-wheel chronograph, the Venus 175, along with tooling, to China for use in the Chinese Air Force pilot's chronograph. Venus did this to fund the development of their new calibre, Venus 188, but before the 188 could be manufactured, Venus ran out of money, and the whole company was bought over by Valjoux, who was eyeing the
              the yet-to-be-released Venus 188. Having bought Venus, Valjoux began producing the 188 design, calling it the Valjoux 7730.

              Meanwhile, in China, Tianjin Watch Factory (now Seagull) continues to produce and further developed the Venus 175 as the Seagull ST19. Here's a ST1901...

                  You’re very welcomed, Sarbie

                  I think the judgments that you refer to is likely the result of categorical thinking among mainstream population—and perhaps even many watch enthusiasts. It is easier to put a member of a group, which in this case is a Chinese watch company, in the same box as the rest. Within my own lifetime, yes, Chinese manufacturing have been more about quantity over quality. However, it was not that long ago—prior to 1970, prior to the political and social change that occurred in China—that there was a culture in China that valued artisan craftsmanship and pride-of-making.

                  We see that in some vintage Chinese fountain pens and watches as well. Today, there is starting to be a revival of that in China, and I’m glad to say that early signs have been shown in the more respectable end of Chinese watchmaking. Sea-Gull is certainly improving every year, as is Shanghai. The real Haute Horlogerie of China is a company that most Westerners have never heard of—Beijing Watch Factory (BWAF).

                  I got my first Beijing in 2017, and was truly blown away…











                  The way I think of it is… the more we disagree with their politics that often enforce collectivism—whether it be China or Russia—the more we should encourage the part of their society that cultivates individualism. Watchmaking is one of them.
                  A watch journey that also serves the betterment of others is one worth taking.
