    Now that's the ultimate tool watch!

    Hey Cats,

    Just got this handed to me gratis while doing a watch trade for this monster.



    Bronze case with an automatic movement.

    The ultimate tool watch looks like this, the damage that is clearly visible covers 100% of the watch. There are also what looks to be molten steel bits stuck to the bracelet, dude was probably an auto mechanic.

    Anyway the watch is titanium and does not run.



    Stand by for after pics if you're curious on whether it can be saved or not

    Peace,
    Preston

    gshock gets my vote but if I wanted an auto for as a tool watch, probably the damaskos!

    I think he made a statement, not a question? But hey, why not give an opinion.

    Steinhart's are OK... but a nice Grand Seiko would work better... or even a Parmigiani Fleurier or Alpha....

    What's that? Oh, we're NOT just throwing out random comments? Sorry about that. Carry on.

    Case polished, new mineral crystal and quartz movement unlocked. Ready to get beat on for the next ten years.

    Doing the bracelet was a lot of work but the case was a nightmare, unfortunately there's a few deep scratches left in it but what can you do.
