Protona, Hanhart ...............
Somehow I got caught up in this vintage spy watch collecting several years ago. I was looking for a genuine Hanhart flyer watch from ww2 and stumbled into this cold war Hanhart that kept time correctly just twice a year. Yeah, inside the case is a microphone for recording stuff...... no movement, etc. Well one thing to another, I collected one more, then the Protona watch that was the original spy watch came up and I got that one.

Over the years I have managed to collect 3 Hanharts and 1 Protona. But then I found a Protona Minifon wire recorder from 1951 that the watch was used with. Now I have 4 of them...... these things aren't even watches?
I guess the whole point of this is....... how much fun watch collecting is. No matter what you focus on, or what is is you plan to collect........ you never know where it will lead.

That watch doesn't tell the correct time twice a year.
It tells the correct time twice a day.
