    Default Funky Friday

    Here it is Friday again, the year is off to a flying start. Something different for me today, a blue Esel. Some of you may remember me mentioning this just after Christmas, I got locked in a bidding war and paid too much for it, mainly because my son had decided to give it to me for Christmas. We ended up going halves. It's taken me a while to clean it up (mostly slackness on my part). I'm reasonably happy with it now, there are still some scratches but it's stainless, so if it's not scratched now it will be at some point. I have included a before photo so you can see how it was. Have a great weekend everyone.

    Good work on the Esel Tim, the crystal has cleaned up particularly well.

    It's all about the Breithorns for me at the moment:

    DS-40. I wonder if Rado ever built and sold all 600. Mine is numbered below 200. The chronometer number on the replacement movement Rado put into mine is less than 400 numbers away from the original. Being Rado, it is highly likely that they did not use movements AND cases serially, but it does give one something to think about.

    Mine is numbered higher than 550 so they must have got close to at least building them all...
