    Another one of the watches from the forgotten watch box,

    Avia Cadet, it was on a cheap plastic/leatherette strap and as I've run out of suitable straps at the mo' I've put it on this Speidel and I quite like it.

    And July starts with a coffee before an important meeting with my 1921 gold Electa Gallet 'Trench-Style' watch...

    That's the advantage if you graze on the low end of the meadow - dinner won't be affected by this one:










    Globus Chronograph, cal. EB 8420

    Calibe EB 8420 is a better one of those outspoken, sturdy and precise chronograph movements which powered "season chronographs" (you wore them a summer long or so) in the 1970s. This one is in very decent shape (given that it's a watch never meant to last...)

    Case is chromed base metal, but looks and feels like battleship steel

    Very beautiful job. If I were you I'd have the hands relumed - they sell non-radioactive lume in beautiful vanilla color these days. Would be a decent match, I guess.
