Ah yes, Guy Fawkes Day, I used to scratch my head as a youngster when I came across that term in Enid Blyton's and Richmal Crompton's books!

An Accurist World Timer today; this one was bought as a donor but I didn't have the heart to relegate the case and dial to my parts box. So several expensive parts later, it's fully operational and on its way to a friend.
Jay Sir Nice Accurist WT 👍⌚and I must confess I do have all the Famous Five And Secret Seven books out of Nostalgia From when I was a kid😜👍

Lots of beautiful timepieces today - particularly impressed by the Sinn above and of course the minty Citizens shown here. I got to start looking deeper into Citizenry.

Today I've got the SBDC051 on a parachute strap fabricated by a friend. A few niggles compared to the original Erika's MN strap but for $12 I can't complain, plus the nylon he used to make this one is pretty much identical to Erika's, it even passed my "take it to the gym" and "wear it for bed" tests.

WRUW SCWF On “Chooseday” 5th November “Guy Fawkes Day”2019

This 6139-6002 is probably the most pristine example I’ve ever laid my hands on. A shout-out to my good friend Reynaldo for giving me a crack at it. This watch is from July of ‘71 and was serviced by KVW. Installed is a later NOS Seiko Bezel that was purchased from Jonathan Koch before his passing. What an honor and privilege it is to own.



Awesome!! Glad you like it brotha

Neilo, that Aquamount looks really nice. Do the hands sync with the digital time like a Skyhawk, or is it like a Wingman where you have to set them both separately ?

Today I Choose Seiko 5, not for today but based on what I expect to be wearing for the rest of the week.
Mark Sir Thanks And nope all done manually on the Older Models👍
Nice Seiko 5 My friend.👍⌚

Hiya Neilo!
Today I have opted for the JDM Ripley reissue.
Yeah, it's not the genuine article, but it was cheap and I do like the design.
All the best!
== Randy
Randy Sir Ripley looks Superb 👍⌚and Deserves a T Shirt😜
