WRUW 12/4/16 Thru 12/10/16

#1 Post by GreenBayStamps » Sun Dec 04, 2016 7:22 am

For Sunday I'm wearing the 1953 Croydon cld.

I have the original bracelet that was provided by Kestenmade. The patina on the original dial, well it just never looked "clean" with the bracelet. I put the 16MM long Champion glove leather band and it is comfortable and nice.

In fact, I think it may look more like what a "work-in man's watch" which would have been worn in the 50's!

Pat, I like the watch on the Champion glove leather strap.
Today I wore the Timex, with original expansion band. Snow coming too!

Picked this one up this week. 1965 Bulova Stainless Automatic 17J 11ALAC movement.
I think it's part of the Jet Clipper family, but I couldn't find it on any of the Bulova websites.
Installed a new crystal and crown and just a light polish. You can kind of tell through the heavily scratched crystal that it had a nice dial and it is mint.
NOS JB Champion band.

Squash 61: I have a Bulova like yours on its way to me. Yours is beautiful, so if mine is half as nice as yours, I'll be very happy. The JB Champion band is a perfect compliment to a nice watch!

Today, I'm wearing a mid 50's Elgin Woodruff. You Elgin aficionados correct me if I have the wrong model name. Notice the nice original band that continues the case design.
