OK, don't laugh now. As I got dressed to go to a farmers' market this morning, I grabbed a brand new pair of shorts. It was of a style and brand I have worn for years. Unfortunately, the makers decided to make them long-shorts, which I don't really like. But, being that the type is hard to get at all these days, I soldiered on.
When it came time to choose a watch, I decided that in "honor" of the new shorts that are too long, I'd wear a watch that was too big. A friend gave it to me a couple of years ago after the rotor had fallen off. And he thought it wasn't a real "one". What are friend's for. :D:eek: One center screw replacement later and away she went. Amazing Chinese quality automatic. And with a display back to boot! Honestly, it is on the obnoxious side in my book, but the ankle-length shorts put me a stylistically goofy mood. It was an indirect form of protesting things that are just too big. But, it does tell decent time, FWIW. Oh, and it's a tourbillion. :rolleyes::D

Hello All, I just joined and this is my first post. Today I am wearing a 6s Elgin hunter’s case. It makes me happy wearing it. Have a great day!

Oops sorry not a wristwatch. I’m already messing up!

Rodania Manual Wind

Just back from the watchmaker & powered by an overhauled AS/ST 1950 17j. movement, this watch likely dates from the early 1970s.

I think that Rodania's "steering wheel" logo is really keen.

On my wrist is a very readable Fortis Flieger 24-hour from Feldmar in Los Angeles. In my pocket is a 1904 Waltham 18S model 1883 grade Sterling in a Silverode open-face case, from a community swap meet. Also in my pocket is a caliber 1003 from the Weiss Watch Company that I bought because it's a very good watch and I wanted to support one of the current USA manufacturers.
