It's the poor man's Rolex today...my Steinhart Ocean GMT.
and a Gibson LesPaul if I'm not mistaken! :O
just like the watch, the guitar is my "poor man's version" of the Gibson: It's a Vintage Icon V100, very much like this one:
Mine is less aged...or was less aged to be precise. I have polished it, to reverse the lifeless, dull finish it originally had.
Pretty cool, nonetheless!
Nautica turned out to be the most convenient , the rest watches no longer fly with me.
There are some magnificent watches on display here.
This Rolex GMT 1 has been my daily wearer since 1981. My parents bought it for me for my 18th b'day. It was £350 on sale reduced from £450.
I recently acquired a new in the box Bulova Commemorative. Just a cheapie quartz but better under jacket cuff knits.
I'm on the lookout for a WW2 A11 ...
Thx for sharing.
Any issues with magnetism ( only with automatic/ mechanical watches) when in the cockpit ?
I didn't notice any problems with the mechanical. Now I use quartz simply because I usually forgot to start the mechanical watches.
Well easy to see who are resident watch addict is ,,,,, Mr Pilot !! But no FSSCs ???
Oh and ties give that old Speedy a srub with a tooth brush and a little dish soap !!
Perfect Monday: Cool temps, a little rain, nice watch, no appointments so I can wear flight jackets to work...
Here's my old Avia on an original 2-piece strap. It's a small watch, looks similar to a ww2 hack watch (-ish...) and at £25, a lot cheaper than an A-11, though i'll get a mint A-11 at some point.
Fits nicely under the knits and doesn't catch them.
Personally, i think they are now more a man's watch than those dinner plate watches everyone seems to be wearing these days that can be read from the moon.
Guitars just go better with other cool stuff than my instruments – saxophones. Not that the sax isn't a very manly instrument, or that it doesn't have style, but nothing leather goes with it - except maybe a great old Reunion Blues gig bag...
Here’s one I wish I had an original of, unfortunately this is my repro USN UDT Frogman watch, but looks great with any A2. Just have to lookout for your knits when putting it on or taking it off.
funny that I'd never knew of this model then I saw one on eBay $66 then 1popped up my Instagram feed but a buzz rickson and another nice copy with all new Hamilton parts went for $158
I just saw a Buzz going for 480.00 on ebay
Found this old photo of my Laco:
Anyone recommend a simple, decent watch for actually flying with? Require a rotating bezel, but not flight computer nonsense...
