I am not sure if that was a design consideration on the tuning fork movements or a design compromise...it does seem to work though ;)

That Accutron cost me about £20 off eBay (no sure why it was so cheap) and about £100 to get it fully serviced, so one of my better purchases I think. Certainly given how accurate the damn thing is ;)

Well had a go on the fabric/plastic as below, and it has not gone well. Probably the most uncomfortable strap material I have ever had the misfortune to use. Completely non pliant, digs in, awkward to use and I feel dirty even trying it.

As I am now having my third shower in a row, have switched to this.

Looking at your stunning watch it only confirms my disappointment in TAG Heuer when they dropped the Autavia in favour of only pursuing Carrera models. Thanks for posting. :thumbup:
