Huh… I've never considered Breitling before and certainly won't now.

I can't, but only because the watch is not in my possession. I thought about that, but it wasn't practical, as I was visiting the owner, and while I offered to help her value the watch, I couldn't take it to a watchmaker.

I bought a very similar if not identical Longines at auction in 2010 for £400 it was described as "18 ct gold rose gold movement no ....231 circa 1950"

Try Transocean Chronograph for a size. 43 mm version has the in-house movement, 38 mm is ETA. Both are quite solid watches on their own right, as they're not the usual Breitlinesque bling machines.

In other news, I decided to test Camille Fournet's custom shop and so far happy with the custom process and special requests. Just made the order, let's see how fast they deliver. Two weeks seems to be the norm.

This overengineered, outsized chunky sculpture in stainless steel makes me ridiculously happy every time it's on my wrist. Love it.

Today, the colors of the Hulk. Some aubergine from
Corthay, some green from William Abraham. And a watch that can stand up to the Hulk. If you've got a problem with my sartorial choices, well, you can take it up with the Hulk.

Thank you! Very close-looking watch. I think I'll need to open up the back at a watchmaker and see if I can find more info. The back case has no manufacturer markings, but is engraved to the owner.

Damn @no frills, purple Corthay! That's dandy! I love it!

I am really enjoying some of these vintage watches. Where do you all find them? Vintage watch stores? Thrift stores? Randomly?

 

Thanks!

Speaking of vintage watches, I've been looking for this watch for over a year and just found it buried in my sock drawer. No freaking idea how it got in there. Fack, must ust be going senile.
