    May WRUW 2018

    Half of Mayday over, so it's time to start the new WRUW.

    For lack of someone more worthy willing to do it, I initiate May with my "Pre-exit watch":








    OMEGA 'Seamaster Compressor', ref. 166.0042, cal. 565

    Yes, I know ... (yawn) ... you've seen this one quite often. But that's how it is - more and more do I come to the conclusion that this is the watch to stick with

    Kind regards
    Andreas
    After all's been said and done, there's a lot more said than done...

    Patina: little pieces of history put on old watches and forgotten there by the maker of time

    "Miracles?", he asked. "Forget about miracles. Those who walk on water just know where the stepstones are."

    "Luxury watches - you acquire the right to take care of them, but they remain the property of their manufacturers."

    Happy May Day. A Helbros with a interesting dial powered by a 21 J Lorsa P75.

    Another of these German-made 37mm electronic jobs which came branded variously as either Matthey-Doret, Junghans, Wedgefield, etc., and all seemingly driven by derivatives of the 17j Junghans 600.10 Ato-Chron movement, regardless of how the individual movements have been re-branded.

    Today’s one is a Matthey-Doret with the Junghans 600.12 and is huffily refusing my Mayday call to open up for its movement image. Luckily, the good Doctor has no such problems:
    http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&1&2uswk&Junghans_600_12


    I have several versions of these things, all closely related, and whilst Sheffield Watch Co of New York may have been the importer into the US, I still can't determine who actually made them.

    Regards.
