Can You Identify Famous Watches By Their Cases?

Postby Racer-X » July 7th 2018, 1:24pm

"Can you identify well-known watches just by their components? We’ve illustrated the cases of five famous watches. Tachymeter scales, slide-rule bezels, and shaped cases can play a prominent role in the design of a watch. Test your watch knowledge and name the watch before clicking through to the next slide showing the watch it belongs to."

The Speedmaster ”riddle” (by Jove, was any of these even a riddle?) was odd. WTF is a BASE 1000 bezel doing on an asymmetric case?

No problem. But then those watches are responsible for 75% of the English-language watch content on the internet. The other 24.99% is about the Submariner, and I know what that looks like too...
