    Another Cyma Bumper

    I gave this one a quick polish up and new strap. Doesn't need a movement service.

    This was a much appreciated gift from my watchmaker/mentor along with a Certina DS-1.











    Wearing it today

    That is another beauty!!!

    You seem to be getting one a day.... I'm jealous... Especially as I keep buying trash!

    Is the mrs aware of the influx of watches?

    Also... I hope you are making a note of all these watches... The sotc thread is getting close!!

    Great example of a Cyma bumper, very nice condition
    this one..I like it very much.
    The 'buffers' on these Cymas are more refined than the normmal set up you see on
    the typical bumpe. I like the idea of the 'plungers' which are damped with the coiled springs
    rather than the coiled springs simply sticking out from holes.
    Nice one.

    I've had this one a month or so. I just finally got it wrist worthy. I would have said I wasn't buying watches for a while, but I bought 2 this morning. Sigh.

    Cyma made a cracker of a bumper - this was Cyma at the top of their game.

    Very underappreciated brand.
