    I like Jubilee bracelets also . It the one you have the larger link then another model ? I think it's strap code that has the option of for 2 link sizes . Not pos if it is them . I had about 2 different Dive bracelets on mine before the Marathon one I have on it came up in an auction I won . It came with both the Great Seal of the United States , and the Canadian Maple leaf deployment clasps . They can get pricy for some reason .

    Nice Omega JBerry , ... I too have seen the Turler logo on a few fine vintage watches . Kinda like Tiffany I imagine . While I will quickly admit that I am addicted to Hamilton watches new and old , I recently had the opportunity to service a vintage Gruen with a 480SS movement and was impressed with the interesting design it presented . Multiple winding barrels , levers , clicks , and srpings . Also very nice finishes to the movement parts . So I have been on a Gruen phase these days . They are nice ..... Here's one I recently acquired as a good deal because it was sold as a non-runner . The first pic is the sellers .

    Hi Gryf , So , "He did verify that it’s a spring-wound movement and not quartz. He had a watchmaker inspect it a while back, and it was verified as an Omega." . ......... That made Verification easy . The strap being 14 MM indicates that this is probably a good size for your Sister .

    I can't tell from the pics because of the lighting ,. so I can't see if the Omega logo is on the crown . And can't see if by chance there's any text between the lugs ,.....So , if it is a true Omega I am not sure . If it is , maybe it's a quartz . Maybe you can open the back with a rubber ball .

    I put away the fancy stuff and pulled out this Citizen "Orca" Eco-Drive Titanium watch for today . This has to be the lightest watch I have . And does it ever glow in the dark .

    Happy Thanksgiving all you watch loving' Turkeys..... Today I chose to wear a Tag Here Carrera caliber 16 . This model uses the Valjoux / ETA 7750 movement . This just happened to be the first watch I worked on with a 7750 . I opened the back of the watch when I first got it because the rotor would spin when it was hand wound , and I wanted to clean and lubricate the automatic assembly . Well , a part of the chronograph popped out and I had no Idea where it came from . I was sweating bullets , but I soon found out how much info is available for this caliber . Especially ETA's Swiss Lab walk thru tutorial for this and other models . This version has the likeness of race car driver Juan Manual Fangio featured on the case back . I can honestly say that this is one of the best feeling watches on the wrist that I own . It's one of those "You know it when you feel it " Pleasures . The Watch :

    Baum & Mercier Capeland Automatoc that I picked up in a watch swap a few months ago . This came with the box and pillow . At first I just took a cursory look a this watch and thought it nothing special , so I put it away for a sale in the future . Then one day I had to attend to some business and was trying to decide which watch to wear . Since I rarely dress as formally as I had to for that meeting , I decided to wear a watch that fitted the occasion and opened the box with this watch ,.. and then realized how clean and contemporary looking this watch was, .so I choose to wear it and developed an appreciation for it . It doesn't look it because of it's pure round shape , but this watch is a tad over 39mm W/O the crown .

    It is a nice classic , clean looking watch . I agree with your thoughts on becoming a throw away society . I feel that so many quartz watches that end up in dresser draws are an example and victim of that attitude . I vote that you find a new crystal for that puppy .

    You are correct on the movement . I installed a new crystal when I first got it . The crystal has a groove on the side where a rubber gasket is fitted . When I installed it , I didn't know that there is a special compression tool that Omega has to install this crystal , so I was sweating bullets until I got it installed ,...since the genuine Omega crystal cost me $100 .
