    Re: What are YOU wearing today?

    Today is a not-so-modest Gruen Curvex "Virtuoso" - solid 14K, 370 Curvametric movement, hand finished case. This one is a recent acquisition and has a faceted plastic crystal, which I don't really prefer. I've had a black dialed one for years...

    No watch for me to display- I am wearing my Duty watch, an American/swiss army duty watch with Tritium Tube hands- night shift, but a remark;
    The leatherwork of all the straps on those watches is of stunning quality!
    Can you recommend a seller who sends to Europe at reasonable costs?

    Kind Regards,
    Paul T.

    Seiko 7006. It's no Rolex, but I love the classic undestated look, and the stainless steel case can take some abuse. It's the 1st Seiko I cleaned and lubed. Check out this website for free detailed service manuals that cover disassembly and oiling instructions for Seiko's : http://www.seikodigitalwatches.com/

    ...a 14K Longines with fancy lugs from around 1952 - 9LT movement. Replacement Italian crocodile strap, standard butterfly deployant clasp.

    A very reliable watch.

    Tom, that's a beautiful, rare solid gold example. I just bought my first Hastings (mine also from 1930), albeit in the common gold-filled case (have to look for a new, thinner, crown):

    I bought this one as a parts watch but after tinkering with it for about ten minutes it started beating and hasn't stopped. I hate it when that happens. Now I have to find another parts watch. An old Warwick.

    It is TRIUMPHANT with "Danot Watch Co. on the movement. I've never seen one like it, but I like the exuberant name--maybe an overly eager salutation for the trench soldier to keep his focus on winning a war. Sad in a way..

    Tom; Here's one of my favorite inscriptions

    on an old Hafis watch. I've since died from the radium hands and this photo was actually posted by my ghost. The roaring 20's must have been fun. Heck, since I'm in heaven, I'll just ask Harry about it.
