WRUW 10/22 through 10/29/17?

Today, my Longines 5-star Admiral Automatic. It is hard to have a favorite, but this one is up there.

73' Day N' Date 5004 with the new addition of the Drema factory issued bracelet, I have had the watch for a while, the bracelet is new. The image with the bracelet may be new for the library.

This came together for me yesterday. The ends and the clasp are off of another scratched up Drema and the bracelet was NOS missing pieces, purchased from Tony Mayfield.

The stainless sets up the black dial nicely! :)

Definitely funky, but also a cool Longines with the matching dial and bezel and enamel markers.

That is a distinctive Lady Elgin.

I wore an Elgin today, too -- an unusual early 1950s ladies' model in yellow gold with inlaid enamel:

It was shown on a 1951 Elgin catalog page:

My watch is Model 4232B, with the unusual endpieces that are mentioned in the listing.
