... 47 mm. I think it was 40mm (or 42mm)if I remember correctly. I wonder if yours is a special issue or something...

Thanks for the scans...

Was it rarity, the movement, the design?

Just curious if you could share on this Jose. It surely is a beaut!

Dear Jose,

I've been looking for this watch for quite some time also. I was looking for the one measuring circa 40mm, but if there is one out there at 47mm, that will be wonderful.

May I ask how much you paid for your fabulous find?

regards,

with the auto movement. The 47mm is a limited edition of 1000 pcs. Original packaging (which sadly I do not have) even had a wooden airplane!

Guess it was the size and wrist presence that won me over when I saw a friend wearing one a few years ago. The NOS movement looked yummy with the display back and the dial/bezel design was very unique.

Operating it too is fun. Pull the crown and you can rotate the inner disc to synch your time with a radio signal, a feature that Weems watches had also. You'll have to press the little button at 3:30 if you want to set the time which curiosly is set in one direction only.
