    Only made it halfway through this thread before finding a new obsession. That is beautiful!! Bulova Snorkel seems to be what google tells me?!?

    Already troweling eBay though they seem to be a few more $$ than I hoped.

    Good question. I couldnít be absolutely certain but I suspect the Longines cal.19.4

    The watch was very beautifully and sympathetically refurbished a couple of years ago by the forumís very own Paul Walker (walkerwek1958). The crown winder was replaced and is not original, but a generic item.

    I will therefore consult the oracle!

    Iíve just committed to this.

    It might need a light polish but Iím pleased with the dial condition and case edge retention (from what I can see).

    Letís hope itís a good one once I can see it in the metal.

    Very nice. Iíve always had a soft spot for Cyma. My late fatherís daily wearer was a Navystar. Sadly, when it ceased working, he dropped it into a charity shop rather than passing to his soon-to-be WIS son. Iíve looked for the same model since, on eBay etc, but never found one quite the same.

    A couple of vintage Longines from the 1960s. The one on the left was from Neil C. in response to a WTB, probably about 10 years ago now!

    some really elegant watches on this thread - I've just acquired a Flagship and waiting for it to arrive

    a light polish of the case - can this easily be down at home if you are careful? - what do you need to do this - presumably a Cape Cod is not enough
