A little Johnny Cash and my de facto daily driver again today as I try to power through a teeny hangover.

My friend gave me this a good few years back,he's now in his 90's and has lived a colourful life :grin:,he ran away from home at 15 to join the merchant navy and spent his working life on the high seas getting into all sorts of scrapes .He told me he bought the watch in Saudi Arabia in the early 70's ,possibly from a yank sailor [ as he put it ] or maybe a pawn shop [ or, once his Neice was out of earshot ,possibly a brothel :grin: ]

Date corrector doesn't work but it keeps great time and he reckoned he'd never had it serviced.

Great story Jim - that is indeed a special watch ....

that's a new one! Love the dial. Great looking watch - I've never seen that model before.

Interesting design for sure. I like the dial, it reminds me of an old Porsche tachometer.

No digitals in my stable anymore. So it’s Turtle Friday for me.

I have been AWOL for to long again.

Golf season is ending here in Finland.
So more time for watches again..



They call me a die hard. If it's a above 38 degrees, I will tee it up.
Before our club forced us to give up on our own carts, my cart had a cover and two heaters. Everyone would rush to the course on the weekend just to ride with me because they knew they'd be warm.
