    I love those and have wanted an Elgin or Waltham for years. One of those companies (Am. Waltham?) made one with a power reserve indicator, and someone made a 15j model rather than the usual...

    Assuming it is useful for some tactical/military application, I'll wind it, because there is something I still find cool about stealthy stuff. Also, there is nothing in its design that I would object...

    Mike Keller suggested some years ago that the Sapporo models were released to coincide with the 1972 Olympic games in that city (they did still have the old 5-digit pre-1973 reference number)....

    The Captain Cook models get a reasonable amount of attention here, but the Sapporo variants do not. Here's one owned by a friend:

    It appears that the bracelet could be silver, though it is doubtful (and hard to tell in the harsh light of the photo). Pretty neat dial. I had a Gazelle or something obscure that had a metallic...

    Those new Mustangs are very nice looking...I imagine the rental version is not a particularly high-powered version, but fun nonetheless, especially with the top down at night.

    Mmmmm. El Primero Chocolat!
    Nice Port Royal chrono! Once upon a time (ca-2001) I bought a black dial Port Royal V Elite.

    I am seven years behind you but likely hundreds of decibels ahead...years of making loud music (and faulty genetics) mean my hearing aid days approach rapidly.

    I happen to prefer the Radiomir models without guards, and so I tend to think 'Big' when Panerai is mentioned, instead of 'Crown guard.'
