    Picture Sotc

    It's been a while, if ever, since I posted a SOTC. The current grouping has been stable for about six months (a record for me) so it's finally time.











    (my dad's SQ as it was the day he passed away)


    The sterile dial is a German with a Durowe movement circa the late 1930's. From the best of my research, it is a conversion from civilian to military time piece. Because of the scarcity of parts and the high demand for military watches, it wasn't uncommon to do such a conversion.

    It appears to have been relumed at some time in the distant past, but other than that it's original.

    IWC caliber 89 - 1957
    Rolex DJ 1601 - 1964
    Omega SM300 - 1968 (Omega Bienne restored 2006)
    Elgin - 1928
    German Military - late 1930's
    Dad's Seiko Quartz - no idea, but priceless.

    Thanks for looking.
    Sláinte,
    Joe
