    Hi -

    As the kids say, "Woot, woot!!!"

    Lovely collection. That Glycine, if I remember correctly, is one of a handful in existence?

    Thanks for sharing!

    Very nice collection (not only the chronos)!
    Thanks for sharing.
    I particularly enjoyed seeing this Rodania Bullhead.

    Cheers,

    Axel

    Axel, thanks for the comments,

    The Rodania bullhead was fun to work on. It was missing a piece in the lemania movement, similar to Omega 861 but without the 12 hour counter. The dial was blank! no clue as to the look so I took major liberties on this redial. Designed it to look like the 40's pilot watches with the railroad track sub dials etc.

    Think it turned out okay!

    Cheers

    Had no idea!!! but have been to the site in general. I thought the bullhead might have an intesting 70's dial look, but as I said, I had fun with this dial, It was the first I got to play with and redesign to my standards.

    Here is a Seiko with a Speedmaster style dial which I also had fun with. The actual dial had been attacked with paint and magic marker:
