    Did anyone besides me notice the MacMillan Bloedel logo on the dial? You've had it for 36 years. A presentation? An inheritance? They are a nice watch.

    Borel Cocktail Kaleidoscope. The center of the dial changes as you watch it. Cool watch!

    RGB,

    Cute watch. But that strap is far too narrow. Sure fire disaster for pulling out spring bars. Don't ask me how I know!

    I love the case on this old Wittnauer. I keep thinking how it would look with the dial redone, but haven't allowed myself to do it.

    Early Omega Constellation. I just can't bring myself to refinish the dial, however.

    The Girard Perregaux Chronometer HF Gyromatic is one of the great ones. Read about it in Osterhausen's book on wrist chronometers. It is one of the most accurate mechanicals ever made. It ate up the competition at the Neuchatel trials, and IMHO it is way undervalued.

    Re: What are YOU wearing today?

    I agree Dr. Jon with your comments about the Girard . I have read some of the literature about the GP High Frequency watches, and you pretty well summarized it. I find it hard to believe how inexpensive some of these GPs are compared to the price of a new one in today's market.

    This one is the 39 jewel model and was serviced by Tradema last year. It is a great running watch.

    Ah....I was wondering what what so "Egyptian" about this Day-Date, until I saw the myriads of pyramids on the bracelet and bezel!

    It is a mid (boy's) size - 28mm diameter case, 10 1/2''' Hunter movement (I think).

    My Zodiac triple calendar from the '50s. As everyone probably knows it does everything but feed the baby. I can't help thinking how a watch built in the '50s that has time, day, date, month, moon phase and is automatic to boot is only 1/4 inch thick without the crystal and the current monsters are half again that thick with the same or fewer functions. I guess that says something about current watchmaking.

    For the past two weeks, I've been wearing this Rado Original. I like the classic design of this watch. I don't know how Rado does it, but when they say scratchproof, they mean it. The bezel on this watch is scratchproof anyway.
