Welcome to the group, Chris. Lots to learn around here. And a pretty good group of folks as well.Well, this seems like a fine place to make my first posting - today it's a Sinn 142 Ti. Long ago I fell in love with the Speedmaster Pro and knew I had made it as an adult when I could afford to buy one. I wore it happily for years until it needed to be serviced; that took a long time so I looked around for something to wear in the interim, and fell into "collecting" watches that had something to do with space exploration. Hence the Sinn, and the Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute (lovely but largely impractical), and Omega X-33.
You wouldn't believe the abuse that my original Seiko Sportsmatic endured, including being worn for some 5 seasons while working as a summer student at the local Ford Motor complex. As my constant companion, I wore the watch into the 1980s when it ultimately succombed to a bad mainspring compounded by an incompetent watchmaker.The Seiko Auto 5's were really good looking watches and good time keepers.
They also could take their fair share of a rough time and still keep on going.
Nice watch and a classic
Another pocket watch, B W Raymond Elgin. 17 jewels. 1924.
Komandirskie K34. The legend lives on
View attachment 539767
Komandirskie series were first relesaed in 1960s by Chistopol Watch Factory (USSR). It was designed for the military. Since the collapse of USSR, Komandirskie was a 'toy watch', cheap, often kitshy, low grade model, until the K34 was released - like - 10 years ago. The K34 is a classy, military style, watch - so cool.[/QUOTE
