An Elgin "Style 33" was on my wrist this morning for singing a Mozart mass at church:

For singing Mozart today (and hearing Magpie as soloist), I wore a new arrival, an Illinois Hudson with sparkle AGN dial:

The bracelet is a period-correct Hadley that came on the watch when I found it.

Nice watches as usual Magpie and Mrtoad.
Today is the maiden voyage for my Wyler 25 Jewel Stainless Steel Automatic. Needed a crown and a crystal polish. Unusual dauphine second hand. I really like the look of the all gold color movement, so I had to include a pic.

Nice watches Magpie and mrtoad, and that Wyler is simple elegance! I like!

Today, an eclectic funky Wittnauer.

Starting the week off with this recent acquisition. The watch arrived about two weeks ago. I tried a black leather strap, then a brown, looked good, but lacking.
The Kreisler bracelet I purchased on a whim last week came in and after some cleaning and polishing it turned out to be a perfect match.
