    My new (to me at least) baby!

    So, after six months of back-and-forth negotiating with the awesome guys at *shameless plug for my new friends* O'Clock in Madrid, I finally pulled the trigger and got this absolute beauty (and a long-time dream watch of mine):

    What could it be?

    Oh snap! A Universal Geneve Tri Compax!

    It even came with this cool book of authorised service centres, complete with a bunch of agents listed in countries that don't even exist any more. Thankfully, should I need to get this baby serviced in the British Colony of Southern Rhodesia, then I'm all set.

    And there she is on the wrist, keeping a wonderfully inaccurate 10 +/- seconds a day after servicing.

    It's actually really hard to this watch justice with pictures, the vividness of the blue second hand and the sub-dial hands, along with the richness of the blue and gold in the moon-phase don't seem to translate too well to photos. Ah well, I guess I'll just have to keep enjoying it on my wrist then!

    If it looks better in person than in the Photo's, I suggest that you send it to each one of us in turn, just so we can get the full effect, I'll volunteer to go first

    All joking aside, congrat's on your dream watch.

    Indeed, I am so overwhelmed by Matt's kindness and sense of communal responsibility that I have no choice but to give him all my watches never

    Thank you all for the kind encouragement!

    I wore her out in the world today, and loved every second of it - I am a very, very luck guy.

    (Yes, I know: not really Vintage - but definitely Tricompax and designed by effectively the same people as yours*. And you get automatic winding into the bargain.....)

    Beautiful watch that. It was actually that exact Zenith that got me all hot and bothered about tricompax moonphases - which is what led me to discover the UG - so I owe it a great debt!
