    Re: What 24 Hours Watch Are You Wearing Today?

    Arrived today.. Universal Geneve Aero-Compax (1999). My first 24 hour chrono .. was looking for an affordable one... this is not. But it was close enough... for liberal definitions of "close" :)

    I think the tritium is dead.. so I'll have to do something there .. never looked at replacing tritium before... looks like it's paint and not tubes (to me).. haven't seen any docs on it.. hmm.

    Yes, that is very nice. Hope you can get the lume fixed without too much bother.

    Nice timepiece. The half-life of tritium is a little over twelve years, so you've probably got at least half of the original activity gone on that lume. It could be more as who knows how old the "paint" was when they built it.

    Yeah, I think half is probably about right, and the lume spots are really small.. I did find that when I woke up at 3 that I could read the time though (which is also nice because it means I've gotten familiar enough with with my 24 hour time pieces that I can tell the time without seeing the numbers).

    Dennis (if you read this), I was going though old posts and saw you had 2 of these... still have either of them? Have you come up with a good bracelet to fit it? I know the bracelet I have isn't original to the watch.. fits a bit oddly (not too bad though). .but I don't know where it actually came from.. and unfortunately it's just slightly too small to be comfortable.

    Picture Re: What 24 Hours Watch Are You Wearing Today?

    Howdy,
    Just saw your post. Nice watch.
    Yes I owned two. No longer unfortunately. You'll notice both were eventually modified with different handsets.
    I prefer bracelets and every watch gets one somehow.
    On the black dial I tried an old titanium Omega X-33 bracelet for a while.
    On the white dial (and alos on the black) I used a Marathon SAR bracelet. Both were a pretty good fit. The Mara SAR bracelet matches the finish of the case much better.

    Thanks! I'll start looking for a sar bracelet.. that looks good.

    If I remember correctly, the UG came with slightly bent springbars and those fit nicely with the solid end link SAR bracelet.

    I don't have a picture but today it was my Glycine. Tonight it was my Bulova Marine Star, a non-24 watch. Apparently, I have been wearing a 24 hr watch for so long that the 12 hr face totally confused me for a longer than I expected. Is that a bad thing?
    Various Bulova, Casio, Citizen, Fortis, Glycine, Marathon, Omega, Oris, Poljot, Suunto, Timex and traser watches.
