Love your Chronostop! There's a lot of 'tat' examples about but yours looks great.

 

Cheers... the crystal is pretty scratched up but i've got an new oem one going in next week. The dial and case are both mint considering she's nearly 50!

I would have drip fed the images but the speedy is the only one of the 1st 4 (exc the PO) i wear, others are long gone.

 

Im not a massive fan of vintage watches largely due to their puney size, except when degraded tritium is involved mmmmmmm

A modified HMT Pilot with a Cali styled dial and Plongeur handset. The watch itself is circa. 1970s.

 

It's now mounted on a NATO which suits it better.18533345015_bb4fb10be0_b.jpg

My granddads vintage Seiko. I am told he acquired this whilst stationed out in Hong Kong. You can tell from its wear that it never left his wrist until he passed away many years ago but still ticking strong and seeing wrist time

English Dennison cased .375ct Solid Gold “jumbo” Omega cal.266. At 37mm diameter it was huge for the time and remains well wearable today.

Thanks Robin. That watch was worn by father every day for the best part of 50 years and still works and keeps time fine. Never serviced either. I had a new plexi fitted a few years back. Lume still works too !!
