And yet I wish Tudor would just make a watch that looked much like that San Martin :laugh2:

Mido+Dior denim. It was running intermittently, so I took it apart and there was a screw missing in the movement. Found a screw the proper size from a spare AS movement and it’s been running good for the past few days.

After speaking to a watchmaker about my zodiacs, both of which had amplitudes in the 160s, and realizing that buying a bunch of cheap vintage watches wasn’t a good financial decision, I splurged on a new modern watch. Nothing fancy, but a Swiss auto chronograph. And the colors match my de rosa. Looking forward to getting it.

I had a Mido once. The self winding function was pretty cool.

Thickness between a vintage hand wound 2 hander (universal geneve) and modern automatic chrono (edox). Kind of impressed how accurate the UG is for a watch that’s around 5mm thick including the acrylic crystal.

Bezel or no? The bezel on my braun has been kinda sticky, so I took it off to clean it and I kind of like the watch without it.

@fre-co Were the hour markers always that color or did they age?

Always like this as far as I recall. It’s 12 years old.

Vietnam eta military watch strap on bulova. Now the 16mm lug width makes a lot of sense, and the color looks better than the factory blue or black.

They are getting smaller with the new 39mm Tudor options but still too chunky. I wish Rolex would follow suit as well.  Much prefer the size of the vintage models on my wrist.
