  1. OT: Very interested in the Scottish referendum tomorrow...

    I hope it turns out well...but I'm not sure which result ensures that.

    OT: "social" media

    Nice one, Kurt! I like the added red accent and the hour numerals.
    I think that would be really comfy, too.
    Congrats!

    Hey folks, I just had a nice e-mail conversation with Bill Mahoney (a.k.a. Squinky) who gave me this info:

    I would expect it to have a 9154, Markus. Same as the marstron/hardtron from the same era.
    Early electromechanicals might have a 9150, but I would hope the second version of a model would use the...

    Hi Miles, if I recall correctly, some Certina Diamaster models actually used in-house Certina 28mm automatic movements, rather than the 'pineapple rotor' ETAs with a brand name engraved on it.

    I cannot recall seeing that particular one before, Miles. It is pretty wild! Are the centre bracelet links borazon also?
    I like the idea of the blue borazon bezel. Some years ago I wanted to make a...

    Is the caliber designation stamped under the balance on those? (Maybe I am thinking of Longines.)
    If I recall correctly, the long designations (such as 30T2SC) gave way in the late '40s or the '50s...

    Yes, it was essentially unsused, but not working, when I obtained it. I doubt I paid much, and I figured I could get it running or would have a watchmaker friend look it over. One thing led to...

    Wow. Three pieces I either used to own, or very similar to watches I owned. All are stunning!
    I'll need to don my 40th Anniv. chronometer just to keep from feeling remorse!

    Hey Miles, I stumbled across a photo of a hi-beat timer I once owned:
