Re: Vintage watch of the day (30 years+)

Here is mine for the day. Converted pocket watch from 1908... Whoah, that is something rare. A repeater hunter/savonette movement presumably in a custom case?

Re: How durable is the titanium bracelet on the C60 Elite 1000?

The grade 5 on my Zenith is harder, in theory, than the grade 2 found on the Mido. I don't know what is used on the CW. I certaily inflict more damage wearing it to work at a desk than just about any other environment. :(

Re: What’s the best thing about the watch you’re wearing right now?

This Lorier Neptune reminds me of my father. He had a bubbleback Datejust (his pride and joy) with a dome plexiglass crystal like this Neptune and I can see him now polishing the crystal with tooth paste to remove the scratches.
