    IWC are also famous for the 2007 Hong Kong newspaper ad for their Big Pilot watches:

    "Often seen on stewardesses' bedside tables".

    Can anyone find a copy of it? I can't.

    As a result of 60s-70s school food, I still cannot eat:

    Semolina
    Tapioca
    Rice Pudding
    Any form of suet pudding

    I visit Darwin sometimes with work. It is a truly tropical city and great if you slow to the pace, but not the most sought-after location in Australia. If you like boozy night life, Mitchell Street...

    Looks like a mid-late 60s Ref:6424. It will be manual wind, with a 1210 movement. Is the case size 36mm?

    It could be the slightly later (mid 70s) 6694 with a 1225 movement.

    Either way, very...

    I certainly think Archimede qualify, as an Ickler watch brand.

    I think Vostok cases are made in-house too.

    The Archimede Klassik 1950's might also be worth a look. (Their apostrophe, not mine.) Citizen Miyota 9015 automatic, like the Smiths Everest, so a very good movement too.

    Interesting that Rolex & Omega both show as 'social grade' C2DE while Tag Heuer and Tissot show as ABC1.

    I am not sure it proves anything, except that some brands are more aspirational than others...

    Any watch where the brand is the main reason most people buy it.

    Date if there is no quickset function, especially on an expensive watch. (I curse my Navitimer every time I have to set it!)
