    In biblical reference, Ur of the Chaldeans. Yes, I believe it's the same place.

    My tan strap arrived yesterday from ukwatchstrap.co.uk. I couldn't bring myself to pay some of the prices I got quoted elsewhere, and on the flip side this was nearly too cheap so I didn't have high hopes about the quality. However, very happy with it, especially for the money. I'm a big fan of a tan strap, and I think it works very well with the green dial. I will see how wear it wells over the coming months.

    Still trying to find a bracelet for my XVI. The 3706 bracelet fits apparently, but as tricky, nay impossible, to find.

    How's the IWC going for you my friend?

    None of my other watches are getting a look-in after this. It really is my 'sweet-spot' for my little collection at the moment.

    Finally got around to giving the bronze a decent polish. Not expecting it stay shiney for too long though as my skin tends to cause tarnish quite quickly.

    My Pilots Chrono seems to be gaining a minute a week. Is this normal IWC behaviour?! I’ve never had anything like that before.

    Between 0 to +7spd is within tolerance for IWC.

    That reminds me I bought this print back over 20 years ago .... mirror writing as you can see ... I think it's quite cool (sorry for the crap pic)



    When you flip it you see the writing is backwards .... Leonardo style ...



    If I recall correctly, when the watch came out, it came with a new annual date wheel for post-millenium in a little phial (as shown), as the one fitted to the watch was only use for a year or two up till the end of 1999.

    Nice idea.

    Had a TZ'er bought one new, it would have been down to the 19th owner to get that fitted then.

    Love this 1965 model; a dress watch that's not too dressy and I wear as a daily. Fabulous timekeeping too.

    I've noticed this on my XX but put it down to the slight dome of the crystal/refraction.

    Not clear in this pic. from yesterday but I do like the shadows of the hands.

    I always thought that was just crystal distortion.

    Mark X11 on bracelet.



    A delight on the wrist, the bracelet is a work of art. I still want to add a leather strap though.

    And here's my Aerotimer taken from roughly the same angle.
