    Between the "complete" price guide, and the good old Google search, its called a Longines Mystery Dial Watch. Circa 1962.
    I'm pretty thrilled with life today!
    Still keeping perfect time... I won't be running it anymore however untill it get a good servicing.
    And.. it's going to need a strap.. this bracelet is bad for the lugs as I've read in another thread.

    I’ve finally replaced the factory strap with the factory Vostok mesh bracelet.

    So nice.

    The strap was not bad as well, but the mesh is nice, gives it a more casual look and I use it as a casual watch :)

    Today I took out, form under all other boxes, a Buran box with a Buran watch. I bought this a long time ago and at the time it was very expensive for me. Used up my birthday money, so it must have been November as well. Handsone, Franck Muller style watch with Russian movement (Poljot 26N dereviate) with a super-silly double date indicator with no real quickset (!!!). 8-12-8 changes the day of the month and 12-4-12 the day of the week. Tricky and devastating to the cannon pinion. Silly. Still, a good looking watch.

    Just arrived from the US, Hamilton 672 automatic. I was very taken with the dial too.
    I'm assuming that it's a late 50s/early 60s Swiss movement?

    After another repair - my Shanghai crap watch. Few hundred of hours on wristwatch - already 1 major and 2 minor repairs. Plus many, many, many adjustments, still inconsistent. I’ve opened this watch about 30 times now (poor caseback got a tad scratced a few times as no ordinary wrench is good here and one has to use a bigger tool).

    Was wearing this for a few days. It needed a bit of care and attention. Used up the last one of this Seiko crystal on it. It is now a 24 jewel movement. Not a common Seiko, in my neck of the woods.

    Now I'm wearing this. It was given to me by the shop owner tossing out old watches. Most Enicars I have seen are all worn out. This one is in immaculate condition, apart from the distressed dial. I'd say the watch had been tossed in a drawer for a long time after the crystal was broken and then had a new crystal fitted but the customer never came back to pick it up.

    Anyway, it is mine now.

    Today I’m wearing this old watch. It is - unfortunately - a ‚frankenwatch’, however. The case is of one of Imperial Russia’s desirable brands - the Pietrovskie. The movement is not original, though. Pretty much the same ebauche, but different S/N and no ‚leeves visibles’ windows in the main plate is a also a major giveaway. Still - a nice watch and about perfect to wear from time to time.

    Late 40's Hamilton "Nordon" from the CLD series of watches they produced. Got it as "non working". Just needed a new mainspring and COA which I just completed. Great amplitude and accuracy. Appears to be original radium lume and dial..very little if any "burn" from the hands.
    Even had all the gaskets in good shape.
    The shadow in the middle of the dial is camera reflection
    Looks almost new.
    My new favorite watch !
    P.S. Sorry for the lines in the photo..my camera is on the way out I think.

    It's a Bulova Marine line according to the dial. Not as fancy as some. Wish I could find out more about it.

    This is a Seiko 6138, so called UFO, a well known pioneer of mechanical chronograph. My model has two sets of day of week dial,, one set shows in English and the other shows Swedish. It was sold in Swedish market. This watch was given to me by a Swedish friend who bought it in Sweden when it first in the market. You can see the Swedish day of week shown on the dial.

    The strap is not ‚winter’ enough, so I’ll have to think about a steel one :)

    And this evening...

    Out of date, but a good timekeeper. Illinois in silver case. The dial is younger than the watch, comes from a mvt with later S/N. The original dial is still a mystery, as the watch arrived short of it...

    This is Omega SeaMaster Co-Axial Model 2220.80, caliber 2500. Movie 007- Casino Royals, James Bond wore this model. I bought this when it was introduced because I wanted to experence co-axial escapement. The Co-Axial escapement allows longer interval between services.
