    *****What Hand crankier are you wearing today??*****

    Well we seem to have a WRUW thread for most things, so how about a WRUW today that is a good old manual wind watch??

    IMO nothing beats winding a watch to make you feel part of the whole Horological experience!

    So I’ll start.

    Today i’m Wearing one of my favourite watches, the Panerai 000, or Zero as it’s affectionately known amongst the Paneristi.

    Inside is a good old 6497 pocket watch movement, that is a bit industrial to wind, but feels solid and makes a nice noise.

    What hand cranker are you wearing today?? No Quartz or Autos allowed.

    Ps, my I pad obviously spelt Cranker for me!! And I can’t change the title.

    I've been wearing the new Vario Empire Art Deco almost non-stop since it arrived 5 days ago.

    It's got a Miyota 6T33 which is an interesting looking movement for a hand wound.

    Wear that which you feel is groovy, get down with your bad self, and shake your money maker if it makes sense for you to do so.

    Now I am sad. Both of my hand crankers, both heirlooms, are at the watchmaker's shop getting a cleaning (for the first time in 30 years). I should have them back soon!
    In the meantime, here are a couple old pics. The Wittnauer was my paternal grandfather’s retirement watch, and the Elgin A11 belonged to my maternal grandfather.
    Supposedly the Elgin was won in a game of cards, but more likely he loaned money to someone and never got paid back. While he wasn’t in the military service during WWII, he was a welder at the Kaiser shipyard in Richmond California where the Liberty ships were being built.
