    U2 Blue for me today and having just downloaded some older pics, I found I have finally been able to capture the creaminess of the 'white' markers and hands. I've read of others describing them as creamy, but so damn hard to capture. They really help bring the watch alive. The 2nd pic shows how they normally appear. Pity the bezel is slightly off centre!

    Just arrived from Ebay Hammy 041330 Khaki Auto 42mm. It's a bit of a stunner! I had a moment of fear, checking it was real, but I'm reassured. As it's a display back, I can see it's definitely a 2824-2 ticking away in there, not anything moody. Phew!

    Testing this today. Circa 1959 methinks @mach 0.0013137 may be able to confirm, as I am just going from the dial logo (otherwise I would think later)

    Getting this one out once more, ColaReb blue leather strap again... Strap really, really matches the blue of the hands, I just can't pick it up on the camera. J

    Is six a collection? Can a chronic flipper have a collection? Who knows? Cheapy stuff excluded, here is the sextet as of now. The flipping has reduced markedly and this lot is a much more settled group. Not much chance of any going but always a chance of additions. Three moderns and three vintage. Three quartz, two automatic, one hand winding. Rolex Datejust, Zenith Defy Subsea, Kienzle 7733, Bell & Ross BRS98S, Ollech & Wajs Cobra, Divex.

    Swapped over to my Zenith El Primero rainbow flyback chronograph for the evening. Took a peek on eBay earlier and was astounded at one of these up for sale at twice what I paid last year.

    This came last week. Quite an interesting 8 day movement based on an eta 7001 with a massive mainspring module attached. Quite a good size too just under 40mm Anyone else have any experiences with eberhard? Good or bad

    Well I arrived home late last night to find @RWP very generous prize waiting, it had arrived and been signed for by MrsT earlier in the week. As it was after 23:00 I decided to wait until today to give it a proper airing, and it is a beauty. A Never worn, cracking Rotary pilot. So Rog please accept this as an official thank you for your generosity. I am honoured to wear it and add it to my meagre collection.

I`m not actually wearing it at the moment having just got up

    Put the services down for now and am trying this sturmanskie. It stops when the chrono is activated, so will need a service. I might keep it for my eventual chronograph BHI course (probably two years away!)

    Never had a problem, I can tie my own shoe laces as well and put my underwear on without falling over
