    Re: WUSF6 Watchmakers of the World Watch Tour

    Just wanted to say that I'm thoroughly enjoying the story of the travels of this watch. I check the thread every few weeks, and there's usually something new and interesting.

    And with all the photos of the work done on it, this must be one of the best-documented watches in the world by now!

    The watch is officially back in the USA. I found it in my mailbox this afternoon. I will post some pictures in the next few days.

    OK, guys - can we call this once around (the world)? Is this close enough?

    I apologize for not passing the watch on yet but things have been super busy lately. I bet no one else has that problem. But don't worry, I hope to do my thing and take some pictures this weekend and then send it on.

    Re: WUSF6 Watchmakers of the World Watch Tour

    I finally found the time to take the watch for a little sight seeing on Friday. I took it to Keeneland. Keeneland is a throughbread horse racing track here in Lexington, Kentucky, USA.


    Keeneland only runs horses two times per year and for just a few weeks each time. Unfortunately, they were not running during the time that I had the watch so the stands were empty. But that did allow me a chance to get a picture at the finish line that I probably would not been able to get if they were racing. In the photo below, the white post to the left contains the camera for those "photo finishes".






    As for the watch, I had planned on engraving the rotor while I had it. But the guy in our shop that was going to do it for me kept coming up with excuses why he couldn't do it so unfortunately I did not get it done. I am going to pass it on to the next person on it's journey and I hope they have better luck than I did. I enjoyed hosting the watch for a couple of weeks.

    Hello all I got the watch this morning in Seminole Florida. Thinking of possibly replating the rotating bezel changing the crown to gold instead of stainless and whatever else I can think of. Rikthewatchmaker

    Who has this watch, and what are you doing with it.
