  • WAYWOF 18 October 2019

    New to the fold, piece of 1964 vintage to start a fairly dull day, hence inside / outside shot. Have a great weekend all.

            Shaping up to be sunny in Auckland this morning but the weather is subject to change 5 times a day up here so who knows what might happen

            Going out after work later on and wanted to wear something fun and easy. Haven't worn the stripey Raketa in a while, so put it on a new single-pass for the day.

              Ah you've got the travelling Vostok! Hoping to be on the list for that one some time next year, hope you are enjoying your time with it.

                A 7A28 is never just another quartz The hidden lugs are best on bracelet like this, IMO.

                Wow! ...Hammers, this is the first we've had on our forum, I think? Congratulations, and yes, this is definitely a connoisseur choice cut of Seiko's history. Looks to be in beautiful original condition. Is the case back a sea-horse, or Olympic torch?

                On the instruments we entrust to pace our lives, to bear witness to our days, and to be the keepers of the most precious thing we have... time.

                  God, those things are worth a bomb now, 1964 Tokyo Olympics One Button Chrono 5717...

                  Cannot find any anywhere for less than 1/75 Moonbeams.

                  Great score Hammers, Yahoo Japan or... ?

                Late entry with one of my all-time favourite of Swiss chronographs...




                MIDO "COMMANDER Automatic" Chronograph M8885.4.18.13 (Mido Cal 1320, base ETA/Valjoux 7750)


                Yes, I'm a sucker for moncoque case and Hesalite crystal. This watch brings both in a never-changed-since-the-70s brew.

                  Hi Don, case back is Olympic torch, all original other than NOS glass. Currently fitted with replacement bezel, apparently hand made by a French man? I have the original bezel which is actually OK but a little worn after 55 years.
