Not in the air yet but waiting on the Greenwich Time Gate watch from KS
OKEAH Final Edition. 1976-2011. Proud owner of the original watch. Serial number: 251/300
Could not disappoint the Ebay seller, I came across it 10 minutes before closing with zero bids on it. So I put in a lowball bid and got it for opening price.
60 euro's BNIB, :) powered by a Ronda 515/24 I would think
Not the most exciting of dials but should wear well if I ever get me a Mercedes. Damned, now I got Janis Joplin singing: Oh Lord won't you buy me a mercedes Benz, my friends all drive porsches , I must make amends...
Still this qualifies I think :)
Dangerous sunday evening Ebay sessions.
Nearly committed to a Edox Geoscope but then got cold feet, good thing, it would seem it is a replica...
Boy this is definitely going the wrong direction!
My resolution not to buy any watches in 2016 has been shattered. It lasted what, 16 days, and I gave in....
Coming my way from Germany is 2016 watch #3
Les mysteres de david. Never heard of, never seen before. Any info is welcome
Seems a bit left field to me as the hour hand looks like it is longer than the minutes, or isnt it?
Will have to do with the vendors pictures for now. Less than 60 Euro P and P not bad...
I would call this watch World Time Indicator. I've seen many versions of this promotional watch. Some of them are in my collection. All have World Time Indicator text on the dial. The promo text in upper half of dial varies.
See also my review of this watch - https://forums.watchuseek.com/f5/worl...-a-836951.html.
"Abramowicz" on your dial indicates famous watch shop by Chaim Abramowicz, Stuttgart, Germany, who ordered this version of the promotional watch. "Les mysteres de David" was a brand name used by Chaim Abramowicz for in-house jewelry and watches.

The hunt is half the fun.
Definitely left field.
As always I start doing my homework after I hit buy button :) and I have just been reading the link on 24 hour watch page as being a "badge engineered" Body heat.
I also found one for sale from some years ago on an Alfa romeo owner website, asking 500 US, claiming they went for 1200 when new, talking of pie-in-the-sky prices
At first I thought it was "my" watch because the hands point at the same time (whatever time that is, still a bit strange to have the longer hand towards the hours) but then I noticed that it has also "water proof" on the dial below World time indicator.
Glad to hear that the minutes are lumed yellow, I sort had half assumed they were originally red and had faded to that yellow.
Once I got better pictures I'll update your AWW with yet another version!
Very nice looking timepiece. Shame it has midnight on top, but still very nice.
I am waiting for this one:
Delivery is announced for tomorrow.
