    indeed it does not. :)

    i wish it was a JLC MUT the one i love with a small seconds dub dial, in gold. sadly, it is not that intriguing. here is another hint, its something that i never would have thought of had i not been fortunate enough for it to come my way.

    all should be revealed some time next week, for better or worse.

    Some miscellaneous watches I photographed badly:
    [​IMG]
    My daily wear Constellation, bumper wind from the early 50s (completely overhauled by Omega about four-five years ago), with a cal.321 pre-moon Speedmaster-note the applied Omega symbol (runs well, but the chrono minute hand fell off and is floating around in the case)
    [​IMG]
    Heuer Autavia - likely a post-Viceroy Viceroy variant but hard to tell
    [​IMG]
    Breitling Transocean from the 70s
    [​IMG]
    Two pie-pan Constellations

    One is a moonphase, whereas the other is a day-night indicator. In essence, the moonphase runs every 29.5 days or whatever, and the day-night indicator is kind of like a GMT wheel... except prettier, and not as useful.

    Here's my beater; I must admit I have not taken good care of it other than recently replacing the metal band with a leather one, it need s a good cleaning. It's much lighter and to me more comfortable with the strap.
