It's been this all week. I left the "rubber" strap on it to keep it authentic, and very comfortable it is too:yes:. They usually get launched first thing, so let's see how long it stays on.

The Richard coin watch is a swine to research. The others more straight forward.  1962 Eterna-matic and 1969 IWC c89

3 of 6 watches bought in Amsterdam this week. Plus I should have 2 more waiting at home. Plus I have finally closed a deal for a grail of mine, but that is for another day

A good week!

I got a couple of these in a box of assorted others towards the end of last year. I think from memory I found some info searching "liberty coin watch"

Thanks.  There seems to be about a dozen Richard related watch companies that hog the Internet. Good quality peseux 7001 movement inside, as used by Blancpain, Omega, Girard-Perregaux and Stowa amongst others.

Unseasonably warm, almost spring-like here today.  That's enough of an excuse to throw a splash of colour on the wrist...

Two thirds of my way through my "descending cost" rotation and now firmly in to sub £50 territory. This one for this evening:

As DC & myself have been invited to a pub lunch today (seniors 2 for 1 :thumbsup:), last night I was choosing a watch to wear.

DC came in & observed this, she said "is that the one I bought you for Xmas some years ago, that would be 'nice' to wear :whistle:

Poljot 'Romanoff' chronograph.

Cal: 3133, 23 jewel.

Quite right Scott, Peseux is a seriously underrated movement, they are high quality often supplied to high end brands.

They even filed patents for automatics calibre yet only produced the cal's 310 & 315.

Their chronometer grade (260 manual)) won observatory standard competitions & are rare as hen's teeth, producing only around 3000 movements.

I believe ETA ceased manufacture of the 7001 (21,600 bph) some years ago as it was to expensive to produce.

Fortunate to have several Peseux movements within my collection.

Nice find.....are you going to keep it ? :laugh:
