    A project perhaps?

    This little thing arrived recently:

    on Flickr

    I knew I was taking a bit of a risk but I couldn't help but push the bid button. It was the simplicity of the dial and the unusual font that got me. I got a bit worried during the delivery period and half expected a horrible monster. Fortunately she isn't that bad. I am fairly sure that the dial has been repainted but they have managed to get inside the numerals and letters. The case does seem to have had a bad case of the brass equivalent to wood worm and she loses about 30s a day. I haven't warmed to her yet mainly because it isn't "right" but also partly due to the fact that the Wife doesn't know about it so I can't wear it that often.

    Here are a few closer shots:

    on Flickr

    on Flickr

    and the obligatory wrist shot with my current favourite photo-bombing:

    on Flickr

    I expect with the correct hands and a second hand I will feel better. Then I'll have a think about what to do with the case. Now where to find replacement hands....

    My first proper watch was a 79180 bought in 1995 and sold in 2002, stupidly, to help finish a house build. I replaced it with a silver dialled 79180 a few years ago but it just wasnít the same. For the last 18mths I have been looking to buy a white dial to changeover, whilst keeping one eye on the market for a nice white 79180. Finally I found one. It seems there are 10x the silver/black BBís out there for every white, it proved much harder to find than I first expected. Job done, I will be buried with this watch

    Been looking for a nice 79280 for a while and sourced this last week- Absolutely love it, so comfortable, was unsure about the Jubilee at first but growing on me- will no doubt add an Oyster at some point though...

    Simply stunning. I would have one again (my biggest regret of all I have let go over the years) in a heartbeat. With the date complication I have always preferred it over the Daytona. Yours looks very well looked after and I can understand why you'd never get rid of it.

    Me too, never got the Daytona thing. Too small for a start although the current model may be a little larger. The BB's have always done it for me. If, for you too, letting a 79180 go was your bggest watch regret now might be a good time to buy as the prices on these are moving up along with everything else, after seemingly lagging for years.

    The big blocks and the later 792xx series were amazing chronographs.

    This arrived today.

    The dial is just sublime, absolutely gorgeous. Pictures can't do it justice.

    New straps just fitted. First is 720 on Corrigia leather, opted for blue stitching to match the hands. Second 243 on Corrigia canvas. Obviously I have a thing about blue and watches.

    I pressed that bid button again.....

    I never believed that I would buy a diver. Generally I think they are in-elegant with chunky bezels, oversized indices cluttering the dials and odd looking hands (I know that they look like they do to serve a purpose but they aren't to my taste) but then I saw this:

    on Flickr

    Just goes to show there is something for everyone.

    (That is glare on the crystal over the 9, not damage to that lovely dial)

    Just got to decide if I want it on a different strap.

    What a beauty! Amazing how we can still come across watches that spark an interest even though you'd written the whole brand / style / function off!

    I wasn't either to be honest. They are much better than the photos make out, less obtrusive and they have really grown on me.

    My first brand new watch for a while arrived today. I have been looking forward to this one as I love the original A11 however they are 80 years old, quite small, and rather fragile now.









    Lume is a nice touch.



    With the watch it is inspired by.



    All in all I have had it 20 minutes and am rather impressed an A11 that I can wear every day.

    Thank you Oliver. I was still a bit sceptical when I bid for it but upon arrival I was won over. Been wearing it ever since. Wears big with the nato beneath but once I've a two piece strap it should be fine.
