    My latest purchase - Sjöö Sandström

    One of the rarest high-precision quartz watches
    in the world is mine.

    I was able to purchase a Sjöö Sandström UTC Ocean
    Race Chronometer Extreme Black, number 18 (serial 3018) of
    100 ever made.

    It has the only digital only thermocompensated quartz movement
    in the world (I describe it more in my earlier Sjöö Sandström thread
    here on the forum).

    When the watch is in “sleep mode” it is almost totally black, and when you
    push a button it opens up and shows the time, day and date (perpetual calendar
    programmed until the year 2099). If it is dark when you push the button, the
    photocell located just beneath the display screen, senses that and automatically
    activates the red backlighting.

    The watch also has/shows: month, week, year, UTC, time in 25 different cities in the
    world, chrono, downward counter for race starts, pin locked pin code memory for seven pin codes and alarm.

    The watch is water resistant to 100m and has a screwed in back. It is delivered with a black calf skin strap.

    Outstanding!

    A unique piece! Congratulations. I like it very much.

    I'd love it if you could set it to an atomic based time source somewhere and give us periodic updates on its performance.

    Thanks a lot Bruce and ronalddheld!
    I set it yesterday to www.time.gov (precision freak as I am) as best as
    I could and I will keep you up to date with it's accuracy.

    Best regards
