    Have any of you guys done the Timezone watch school course?

    I have. Completed 1 and started 2 but never finished. I'm a dilettante when it comes to this kind of stuff...


    Singular - that 30T2 is pretty

    That Lange is sick. I love the aesthetics of the movement.

    You found that on the beach?

    I kid, I have one too. It was my first "serious" watch.

    Here're some pictures of my recently purchased 1961 King Seiko. It's on a different strap now as the shiny black reptile skin really sucked. The watch looks better in real life than the pics.

    Tha's my favourite watch, even though it's the most basic of the Seamaster's, I still love it. That was the watch worn in the best of the Pierce Brosnan Bond films, Goldeneye.

    I have the Chrono version of this watch with the Valjoux 7750 movement in it. Thing is about a foot thick and weighs like 25 or 30 pounds. I wear it all the time and love it, but in retrospect I'd have probably preferred an auto version of this one.

    FWIW, watchmakers who post on Watchuseek forum strongly advise against cheap tools. I recently bought a cheap bracelet resizing tool (12 bucks or so). It works, but the actual "tool pin" that pushes the "bracelet pin" out of its hole bends very easily. I had to straighten it and be extra-careful on the next try. YMMV.
