I was just reading Guys Post .I learn Lots from his Posts, I was surprised to read that hacking was not important to him. It may well be unimportant to Many??
For me Hacking is so important. When I have OEM 6309s or 6105As that do not hack or any other watches I wear that don't hack I feel a bit lost.
I keep daily records of the watches I wear Been that way forever, Enjoy seeing how accurate they are On winders or on my Wrist. Math was not my strong suite: I guess this is why I have a HACKING watch 95% of the time on my wrist, I enjoy charting each day how many seconds I'm off 5-11 secs mostly Slow
It was said the other day when a Post showed a BEAUTIFUL Collection of 6105-811x, 6309-704x and the Poster talked about Bonding with his watches, that they Each had a Different Personality It was nice to Read because Thats how feel about Mine. This is a pic seen many times of the 6309-7049 April 1977 # extra jewels, Hacking kit and Black kanji Day/date My Go to 6309 Often
Because I don't find myself lining up the seconds hand when I wear a watch for a day or two. Notice I did say "mostly", not always, and didn't speak about anyone else!
I like it on a 6105 and 6306 and a 6159 currently. I don't have either of those watches anymore, let alone a 6159.
