    A red date wheel... nice... from the real Swiss era of Titoni
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Thank You! I was amazed when I found the price of this watches on the net - for this quality and state they ask for quite samll amout of cash. I'm not a big fun of Eta movements but this one is still quite nicely done in accordance to this later produced.

    My 17 jewel Airmaster says hello. Is my favorite watch at the moment. And your right, undervalued for such a fine watch. Okay by me though.

    The cushion case is one of my favorites:

    I personally do not consider them undervalued as I live in China, they are mid-ranged vintage collectables like Roamer, and they are still popular today.

    Good to know that in China they are more popular.
    I come from Poland - country of Delbana and Atlantic fanatics and some russian watches collectors.
    Now i live in NL - with much richer variety of vintage pearls :)
    Yours watches looks amazing! The Airmaster line is awesome!

    The red date wheel is often seen on watches sold in the Far East. I believe, that it's tied into the reason the traditional bride's dress color is red but I forget the exact significance.
