WURW Friday 06.09.2017

Postby Thunder1 » June 9th 2017, 3:26am

This one all day today for me..picked it up earlier this week..an Omega De Ville w/ PR & small seconds functions..powered by Omega's caliber 2627...this is basically their cal. 1120 w/ the Co-Axial Escapement mechanism..and, in turn, their cal. 1120 was basically an ETA 2892-A2 w/ a decorated bridge..left it running on my dresser for a couple of days, and it seems to have kept excellent time..no scratches or dings..seller originally asked $1,800 for it & settled for $1,700..cost me $1,840 after taxes though..well, so far, so good..the 39.5 mm case is the right size for this kind of an effort in a dress watch..

Since this is a Friday, and Friday's always make me feel a bit on the whimsical side, I thought I would present to you my first-ever watch that I bought in what would eventually grow to be my current watch collection. It should be very recognizable (to those who grew up in the 1960's, as I did) as a CharlieTuna (or, if you're from Massachusetts, a Charlie Tuner) cartoon watch, a keepsake from the Starkist Tuna Company, who ultimately made it an advertising icon.

Thanks for looking & reading, and please have a great Friday, and an even better weekend...
Okay, so I was wrong... http://thewatchforum.net/forum/index.php ...but I was never so glad to be incorrect... ;)
