Today.... My 1940's Heuer Ref 347. Rugged looking watch with its battle scared dial. It has a Valjoux 22 under the hood. It's quite a large case for the time which gives it more of a contemporary

My 1961 Omega Constellation. Hard to believe its 60 years old. I don't think the Omega bracelet is correct . I believe these types came out in 62'. Doesn't matter since I like these more squared grain

1919 Burlington by Vortic Watch CO. USA

Today it is a CWC G10 from 2016 that I got in  bits and without a dial. I had an older T lume dial that looks very nice. The old seconds hand was broken and the hour and minutes hands we also in rough shape and didn't sit especially well on the wheels. These are a fairly close replacement and look much nicer.

The watch of the day for me is my father-in-law's 1957 Bulova Sea King, not be confused with Seamasters of the same vintage lol. After he passed we had it serviced and it runs very well. 

It was given to my eldest son who wore it for awhile until he decided that 32mm was too small for his muscular early-20s shot-putter's "guns" (arms).

I keep it in the rotation on my wrist, patiently ticking away the seconds until he decides that is is cool again; maybe a few decades form now. Then it will return to him.

Yes I did make the dial and took it to an AD to compare an IWC and it basically looks the same if not better according to the person working there. 90% accurate. Got the design inspiration from 3 different brands, Alpina, IWC and Stowa

Today is my Seiko SRP777 model as a 6105 "Captain Willard" homage. Dial, hands, and coin-edge bezel. I don't wear this one during the winter because of the size and it doesn't fit under gloves very well. But I'm working form home today so is gets some wrist time.

Today is the Alsta Nautoscaph Superautomatic re-issue #36/1975. Jaws is one of those movies I can watch any time from any point and I still enjoy it. Peter Benchley was a customer at the computer store I used to work for in the early 80's. He had and Apple ///. Terrible computer but it looked cool. I really like the watch too.

That's an absolutely gorgeous watch and a great story. If I had a diver it would look like that.

The watch of today for today, a snowy Sunday late morning, when I am NOT conducting worship because of a COVID quarantine as we wait for future. test results for my 13 year old, Jake, is my CWC GS Sapphire. 

I started gravitating towards military watches and field watched in general. I was surprised that most were only 3 or 5atm water resistance and I want to be a able to swim with my watch and not worry. 

So while I still iek field watches, I wanted something a bit more "modern" and greater water resistance. Enter the GS Sapphire with the sapphire crystal, screw down crown, and 20atm resistance. Hard to go wrong in my book.

    • so now we have the ultimate? How do we deliver it?  
    • Russia is member of the Universal Postal Union and as such their Post must accept pieces for any destination. International tariffs link https://www.pochta.ru/documents/10231/726549028/УУС+2021_.pdf/ Interstingly unlike hey do not group destinations by listing orcontinents but by distance - however measured.  Then any individual seller is free to decide where they do ship and where not. I suggest that you contact the seller and inquire, he may be just be unfamiliar with remote destinations prices. 
    • I don't get your point. If you make or maintain a measurement tool, of any kind, you need a reference for calibration or just validation. It can be more or less accurate but it has to be there, that's metrology 101. You can have all the atomic clocks and Network Time Protocol to disseminate time, the issue is how to bring that accuracy to a standalone device and know if it is reliable.  Otherwise one can get into watercolor painting or other interests that do not require that kind of approach at all. 
    • Material houses like cousins, eslinger, ofrei, julesborel do carry watch parts, though I doubt you can find a sign crown for this. Familiarize with  Dr ranfft's very popular database for good general information on most calibers, just google ETA 1260 ranfft. Good luck
    • You can use any crown of your liking and that matches the pendant tube. Since you haven't posted pictures of the case one can't tell how it should like.  Two piece stems are easily available, even on Ebay.    As answered sometime. In the past service manuals did not exist because the watchmaker was supposed to known his trade well enough.  Parts lists were issued to ease identification and ordering, very many including for the one you have can be downloaded from Cousins UK.
