That's VERY nice. Enamel dial assume?


Thanks. I believe so. Just enough cracks to be considered to be patina, not damage.

It's easy to forget the hundreds of hours that it used to take to surf forums and classified hoping to get a little gem like this one. And people wonder how I'm doing so well with all this social distancing...

1958 Tudor Rolex Oyster Royal model 7934. Also known as "Small Rose", it had a very unique waffle dial, a heat blued second hand and wonderfully patinaed tritium.. Powered by a cal. 390, this little gem wore wonderfully at only 34mm. I kind of miss it. It was a charming little watch for almost no money at all.

That Tudor is stunning, exactly what I think of for a “dress” watch....

Beautiful!

Here's my 1951 Regent 7903. Couldn't believe no one else bid on it. Appears to be all original. Wears larger than 32mm would suggest. A keeper.

You're welcome.

When I was a boy, a navy sub came to my town of Everett, WA (30 miles north of Seattle) and my dad took me on one of the tours. Having been watching the TV series "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" for a couple of years at the time, I was shocked by how small the spaces in a REAL submarine were. I imagine it's the same for people who have grown up watching "The Hunt for Red October" and similar films when they visit the Torsk.

Test your watch identification skills. This shouldn’t be too hard. What is the make and model of this watch?

I realize it was only a week or so ago, but remember some years have passed in terms of the collection...
Today we have a return of the Yobokies modded Seiko Orange Monster. This time in a 4:00 crown format and with an airplane second hand. Similarly bead blasted case and bracelet.

Another one from my father's stash, one of the few non running projects he bought. Needed a second hand, a crystal, and a service. I need to find a strap that fits it better.

Those modded Seikos really turn me on.

Hey guys I wanted to give you a heads up, cheapestnatostraps Link to their website is running a hell of a deal on their Marine Nationale elastic straps AND 20% off of you purchase 5 or more. The coupon code for the additional discount is “20”. They are already discounted big time but that 20% discount on top makes it probably the best deal you will find on MN straps.

I scooped up a bunch of em just now. Cool

Those Tudors are something else. Very nice.

I bought 5 straps from the the other night. Elastic MN in 20 and 22mm, plus a couple of seatbelt natos amd a racing green strap for my Tissot chrono.



I'm gonna vote for the funniest frog with the loudest croak on the highest log.

The next lume shot/test your watch ID skills test I do is going to be MUCH harder. It will be a watch I’ve never posted about and one that is rather obscure/unknown. I’ll give you a hint. It’s not going to be in anyway whatsoever affiliated with Seiko (that goes for its movement too).

Another stab at an Accutron. I mean, obviously I "wanted" the 214 Spaceview and for whatever reason, I kept pissing around with eBay junk like this. I'm embarrassed to post it. But I promise the rest of the week has some real winners -- including one of the five watches I regret ever selling.

I did note a little better staging in my photos here and in the next few posts, I watch albums, I see better composure attempts. So there's that. Happy Tuesday!
