today is proving to be a killer day here. derek! HURRY UP!!
There are advantages to both:
I love the 2254.50 but once I saw the 2231.50 I fell in love. It is so light, sometimes I have to check to make sure it is still on my wrist.
2254.50. - the walnut Strand of Timezone.
I like your choice better, beowulf.
OR....MAYBE...hardcore TZers say that walnut Strands are the 2254.50 of Style Forvm?
On the wrist today.
Interesting, complex dial pattern....honestly don't recognize it, but maybe a Unitas 6497 base?
Like the large crown.
Solid guess on the 6497, but it's actually something much nicer (IMO) - a pristine vintage Hamilton cal. 917:
Watch by Al Jenski - Archer Watches.
Not a wrist shot, but this is what I'm wearing today! New to me 145.012-67, all original except for the bracelet.
And an action shot...
Good guy, that Al! Not too many Canadian-made watches out there, either...
^^^ Congrats and enjoy !
Yep - he's one of the best. He's done a great job servicing some vintage Omegas for me as well.
Congrats on the Speedy narmee!
I know — this one is going to him when the time comes. Nice to hear that you've have good experiences with him!
^^^ That is freakin' gorgeous!
Here's one of mine:
Big for a vintage 30T2 at 37mm.
You can actually get almost the exact same strap from Hirsch for your IWC for around half price of the original if it is one of the more basic alligator ones like the one for the Portuguese or standard Pilots watch.
Hirsch makes the straps for IWC afaik, as they do for a lot of other companies.
I got one for my Spitfire Pilot earlier from Hirsch to replace the original and it fits perfect and you can hardly tell the difference apart from the fact that it says Hirsch instead of IWC on the inside.
