Thanks to Ken for replacing the click spring in my Markus 1963 and to Al and Archer Watches for regulating my Ed 1963 from down under.



The Markus 1963 has the red filled star and a wider crown:


The Ed 1963 has a crown more like a Watchunique 1963 but has the same engraved caseback sans red infill.


So there you have it. The Ed 1963 might be the best 1963 of all. Paperwork and box from Sea-Gull combined with the classier choice of the non filled engraved caseback.

It is keeping better time than my Planet Ocean!

Al needs a special tool to regulate a Co-Axial Escapement but when he gets it I will get that P.O. all set up.

I saw these sometime ago on WUS & thought they looked cool.

Saw them again today on WUS & decided to check watchunique but they're out of stock.

Came here & saw your post & couldn't help but emailed Markus to see if he has any left.

Good looking watches Mark!!

Thanks for updates and pics Mark.
Pics of my precious is nice. +3 sec is awesome.
I gotta get some stuff out to Al's some day. Nice to know he's around.

Can't wait.
