Although I've already decided a man can easily have two 6498's in a collection. :)
Snap!
On all of the above.

An 'oldie' for me again to start the day, this one from c 1969, and using pretty much the same mov't as the later Speedy moonwatch :)

I have considered getting the Steinhart version of this watch. How do you find it, worth the money?

Mark
Got this one from the sales corner, or I would have gone for the Steinhart, more easily available in the UK. The watch filled a desire for a hand wound movement. I am happy to have this watch as part of my collection and recommend everyone should have at least one in their collection, but have lost the desire to collect more. It does not get a lot of wrist time I prefer automatics.
For: Good quality traditional pilot watch. Excellent exhibition caseback and nice decorated movement.
Against: No date. The Unitas movement is non-hacking.
The lack of a date function is probably the reason I do not pick this one when considering which watch to wear for the day.
No more Quartz (except when I cannot resist).

I have the 44mm Steinhart version and it would be one of the favourite watches in my modest collection. I appreciate the stark business like nature of the face, enjoy the interaction of hand winding and funnily enough I find the lack of a date actually has some appeal for daily wear since you don't have to faff about setting the date :lol:

Loving the bond, my grail was always the SMP until the PO! (but weirdly the quartz due to its independently adjustable hour hand). Black looks much fresher than the blue version due to its bright white lume (forgot which it is - C3?)
I miss all the great things that may never be.

It has this marvolous invention called "hands" and they move around over a twelve hour period. Quite high tech :D

If i watch 125 and moto2 live I am a Eurosport person. Recroded or live Motogp.com. I think Steve Parrish is boring and Cox is an highly exitable car person.

My leased car is going back on Tuesday, so I spent a couple of hours this morning trying to make it look like someone had cared for it these past 3 years..........

So, a beater was in order. This Traser on Maratac..
