  1. Yes, but you love a challenge. LOL Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  2. i haven't been keeping a tally of just how many you've acquired, louis. that is one helluva collection. they don't make those classy designs anymore, and it's a shame. i'm sure you're not done yet, either.
  3. every helvetia i've seen has been a great looking watch. this is no exception. that is very nice.
  4. i am totally unfamiliar with a huntana, but i love it!! very sweet looking. that is a perfect dress watch. if you ever felt the need to part with it, look here first. it's a beauty.
  5. louis - you don't see too many of them (seiko) in that combo - stainless case and gold finished dial. i love that look.
  6. that's a beautiful job! it looks like you have a nice deep luster. i'd like to see before and after pics. what is the watch, anyway?
  7. louis - there is a place in heaven for you for taking in that orphan.
  8. thanks guys. this is the jet star. i've seen them with red on the hands, too. but always with the blue painted bezel. bulova was NOT afraid to go out on the limb design-wise.

  10. I'm wearing this beast. One of my larger watches, but I love this thing. It's from 1973, I believe. I bought it in a watch lot with a bunch of turds. This was the best one and the reason I bought the lot. It has issues because I've dropped it twice. I also need to paint the bezel the proper blue that it had when it left the factory.

  12. This beater got wrist time today. I love this thing. It was one of my first serious purchases when I settled down from buying anything that ticked. It's got a horse hide strap that I made. This thing is awesome. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  13. one of my all time favs. love that date location.
  14. louis!! looking great on the world time. that is like a new watch. see? now i helped you discover something new about your watch. looks like seiko put that bend in there to clear the indices. very cool.
  15. i bought some lume from an ebay seller a while back. i am reasonably pleased with the lume quality, but the binder has an objectionable smell. chemical smells usually won't bother me, but this does. i hate working with it. what i've been thinking about using is UV activated nail polish. it won't harden until exposed to UV light - which is sunshine.
