like you my good man, just like you.

Love Speedmasters!

For some reason, the only one who has found a way into my collection is a Mk II, the awkward 70s cousin in the Speedy family. Dated, but I quite like it. Hefty on a mesh.

"springbar tool" is what you need my friend

 
You can buy it from anywhere of course, but thats where I bought mine

(i'm not sure if this model has fixed springbars though)

Whelp, I managed to get the springbars off without scratching the lugs. I hadn't seen Newcomer's post when I ordered, so I just got a cheap one of Amazon.

Now I can't figure out how to get them back in. shog[1].gif

^^^ Cool!  I have an Oris chrono with that retro-seventies vibe, but your vibe is authentic.

Getting them out is definitely the easy part smile.gif. Getting them in takes practice. Easier with a strap than with a bracelet. Some bracelets can be nightmares sometimes...

Lit up an ERDM Choix Supreme...capped off a nice day with an old watch.

Anyone else love the new Sinn 140A? Now...who is going to buy one so I can live vicariously through them?

Very pretty. I live a few miles away from their workshop. Wish I could afford one. smile.gif

Ah, most elegant. I love the gently curving lugs.
