    The ONLY Generation #4 Depollier Waterproof Wrist Watch known to exist.

    The only known sterling silver model spanning all four generations.

    Rolland's RGM Watch Company did a fantastic job with the movement overhaul, timing is now superb.

    They installed a brand new mainspring and fixed the cannon pinion issue.

    I could not be more pleased!

    The movement pic is older, did not want to open the case back again.

    My 34mm Sarcar for today, with its 17j FHF 55-4. Back in the day, Sarcar seems to have been a niche maker with laudable ideals and whilst the company still exists, their current ranges are perhaps something of an acquired taste.

    For those of a nervous disposition, eye-protectors may be an idea if you were minded to have a quick peek at their modern oeuvre.

    Regards.

    This one for me today - 1942 Eterna, 28mm steel case, cal. 905H:

    Put it on a Hirsch peccary leather strap that I had in my tools/spare parts drawer. The surface is worn, but after having it oiled, it's perfectly good to go. Besides, some wear to the strap works nicely with the tool/field style of the watch itself.

    Omega 30T2 PC (shock-protected variant) in a "jumbo" (~38mm) ref 2505 case. Credit goes to @mkws for noticing last September (https://forums.watchuseek.com/f11/38m...l#post33933306) that the previous hands were incorrect. Not only the yellow gold small seconds hand, but also the hour and minute hands. Nearly a year later, I am happy to say that I was able to find the correct long pink-gold hour and minute hands (thanks to an incredible eBay sell-off of a huge stock of old Omega hands) and my watchmaker incredibly found a pink gold small seconds hand (not Omega, but an excellent color match).

    Here is the watch today:

    Omega Seamaster Cosmic fresh from service. I added a funky blue strap from a fashion Watch I got in a watch lot. Just until I can get a better one.

    Coming forward a few decades today with this clean-looking Marvin in a 34mm case and its 17j cal. 741, probably based on an Election 805.
