  1. @CombatID Hi, thanks for asking about my watches. Nothing special, but I've selected one from several movement families. I picked an Aussie Pogue to have something a bit different. When the 6138 came I found it had been polished but I kept it due to its otherwise good condition and its original Stelux bracelet. And, the polishing 'mod' is to my liking on this big watch. The 7a28 was bought by me and is original excepting one of Harold's bezel inserts. It was my daily wear for 20 years. The 7a38 is quite a little charmer. Finally, the 6017 Speed timer, while fairly useless as a chrono, nevertheless has a wonderfully busy yet readable dial. Have a great holiday weekend.

I also have a vintage Chopard Mille Miglia and a Mk 40 Speedmaster, the latter my daily wear.

Thanks! What do have/ have in mind?
Currently I have 6138-8020, 6139-6002 blue, 6139-6040 (waiting to be delivered) and 7a28-703b. Probably will sell blue pogue to add 6138-7000 or 6138-8030 next if I can find one good condition at a right price.

Nice job, bugdoc you have some excellent specimens in your chronograph collection. I’m a big collector of chronographs which this forum has helped to flame the fires of WIS syndrome. I concentrate on Seiko chronographs from the 70s, but like you I also have some modern Swiss which I also cherish. The story on the 7017 is that it is designed for timing rally races which you are correct, doesn’t make it as generally useful. But it is one of my favorite watches. I post a lot of pictures on different threads, but I’m the original owner of this 1984 7a38, which I think you will appreciate.

Ah Yes the Royal Oak. Looks like you had a better eye for watches back in the day. (y)
