^^^that does look in great condition, the massively overused term "NOS" could really apply in this case.

A small seconds complication that is perfectly sized AND positioned. Don't see that too much nowadays :thumbup:

I like the sixties and seventies Certinas - and that looks to be a great example.

^^^ Interesting Omega. I suppose the division of seconds into fifths on a non-chrono must be more about...well, being "dynamic"? :D

The Dynamic had literally dozens and dozens of dials to chose from during its circa five year run. Maybe even more than that... This is one of the more sought after variants, the racing dial. Modelled on a dial that was produced originally for a Speedmaster, it’s only real value on a three handed watch is that it looks, well, cool... Image
This one is an original racing dial too, not one of the repainted ones sold all too frequently on places like eBay.

That is gorgeous, and unusual (to me at least). I love it!

Here is my Eterna-matic Centenaire "61".

It seems to have seen very little use in it's 57 odd years. I'll treat it to a better strap soon, although I do find Nato straps very comfortable and convenient.

Back then, everything was a little contained environment. Lost that with the sapphire crystal.

And here: The bullseye is very attractive, too, Still have it?

Another racing dial - but not an original, it’s a redial...
