Happy Kanji Monday gents and a big Thank You to all who served as we observe Veterans Day today.

Green dial 6139-8050. October 1974.

I've had more than a few of these, including the blue and green, but the dial imperfections always made me move them on. This one is just flat-out pristine.

Thank you veterans, wherever you are. I’m wearing my new and mysterious Caribbean Turtle today. Still trying to track down more info.

Well it's also Remembrance Day.....lest we forget.

Thinking of my Uncle Larry who perished on July 23, 1944 while on a training mission off the English Coast.

Larry (in the middle) with some of his crew;


With his father, a veterean of WW!;


I also remember all who served and all the innocents who perished. And finally my Dad, who we lost 20 years ago on November 10; (the tall guy in the middle)



Will be heading down to the cenotaph wearing the Oris which sort of has an "airforce" blue hue to it. Thank you to all that served!

Nice post Russ. I've stated this before, but what is amazing to me is how young theses guys were - there were just kids. Flying P-51s, P-38s, etc. Driving tanks. They were pretty brave souls to be doing what they were doing at their ages. When I go to the museums and look at all the displays, it always catches me off-guard at how young they were.

It's pretty remarkable eh? I think it all begins with a sense of adventure and of course duty. I remember my Dad telling me he tried to convince Larry not to sign up suggesting the Commonwealth had plenty of pilots by then (1944) and that he needed to look after Larry's parents. Unfortunately, the siren call was pretty convincing then. Personally, I shudder whenever the glory card is played.
I will always admire those that serve and continue to serve.

I remember Dad telling me it was a Polish pilot that he and his fellow recruits had to follow as part of their orientation to their new airplane, the Hawker Hurricane. Dad said it was all he and others could do to keep up!

I bought an original blue strap for this watch. Price: about USD 48.
