I thought I would share a few pics of one of my chronograph's.

This particular watch is an interesting example with "chocolate sub- dials", nice "skinny 9 o"clock 2nd hand" (most are replaced sometime after service), original "300 units/hr bezel" steel bezel and "short pumps" (again, most are replaced with later "longer pumps") .

Many thanks to my very good friend; Werner(Gatsby) for helping me with this watch.

Cheers,
Arthur

that you are on a roll!

Great watch Arthur, as usual. I think it is time that you stepped back, considered the direction that you want for your collection, and sell me anything you don't want!

Kidding, enjoy and good luck with your morning dillema of which watch to wear.
