Thanks! I found a spare 11630 case with the custom display back on eBay a few years ago, so I can't claim the idea for my own. But I agreee, the movement is indeed worth seeing. And always a nice conversation starter to explain the first auto chronos and the microrotor and everything. I hava a Siffert (white/blue) Autavia as well, but the silver dialled is almost as rare.
Vintage Heuer Autavia this evening. Rosé in the glass, warm breeze. A nice view of the automatic (spot the rotor?) movement, thanks to a custom display back.
The VC American is super cool! I stopped by my AD wednesday, tried on some dressier watches. The 40mm VC Patrimony was just too large and flat for me, but (as expected) the JLC MUT Moon 39 was right on the money! Sigh, I now have a new desire ... Considering the prices of VC in white gold vs JLC i steel, the outcome of the visit could have been worse though
And speaking of moons, my 5712 is always worth showing off (again)
The FC made me look at moon phases again. JLC MUT Moon, swoon
I love it! Even though lends heavily from smiliar watches from other brands. The execution looks very good. But 42mm? A tad bit too large for a dressy watch, no?
I fellow forumite on another forum just dubbed the new platinum Daytona: the Fazermint So you have the Hulk (LV Sub), the Smurf (white gold Sub) and now the Fazermint
Regarding customer service: I used to work for a small familiy-owned AD while at university. Excellent part time job! And probably what turned on the WIS switch. The very first thing I learned from the owner was to give every (potential) customer the same (good) treatment. The Norwegian saying is "dont judge a dog by its hair", and there would be several shaggy dogs by regularly. None of them dressed well, and the personal hygiene could be lacking. But they were...
Gotta love those nipples, Singular! My weathered old 5513 today. All week, now that I think of it. The creamy tritium is just the loveliest
The SM300 is one of my definite favs! Wears well on the original bracelet like yours, Omega mesh, perlon NATO or suede (from Hodinkee for instance).
