    That's quite a handsome watch. I'd like to see more pictures of it on the other straps. Is it stock 40mm?

    Yes, my manuals have far outstripped my auto's. I prefer a manual, because like you, I like to wind them everyday, and they are designed for that. Slimmer and lighter. Win win.

    I gave my daughter one of my cheaper divers with QR straps, when she went swimming, knowing full well that kids don't give a rats *&^%&% about watches when they plunge down slides etc. No issues.

    Not sure what to call this. It's a Saga, but made by Timex. Handwind movement, 38 mm diameter with 18 mm lugs, semi quickset date complication and bi directional bezel. From the late 1970's. Have a...

    Very handsome watch, your dad had good taste.

    It looks good on your wrist too. I have a 34mm which fits fine on my 7.5inch wrist, but has long (to me) lugs, which I think helps. Never thought of...

    Yes the movements are simple and cheap, but tough as old boots. This one just stopped working on a full wind. I sent it to my watch technician, and he's worked wonders on it. Ticks like a charm now....
