Outstanding Military Chrono, Susan
I've read where that was for the RAF, was it made for the US military as well?

Thanks! My understanding is Royal Navy, Royal Airforce, and Royal Australian Navy — no U.S., strangely. . . .

Nice Watches People! :)

For me today the 1959 Thin-o-matic T-501 with an NOS Flex-Let bracelet.

I had the bracelet and it was too short originally. I ordered one on e-Bay and it had a place to put sections in. WOOHOO not normal! I had never seen one with the ability to add units.

I recapped about six from another Flex-let bracelet and I have a watch I can wear, "which really is the goal, right?" :lol: :lol: :lol:

Wearing the 1953 Lord Elgin Cranbrook. I put it on a flat Ostrich leg strap. If you haven't tried Ostrich leg, it is really a nice looking leather, minus those Ostrich skin bumps I just don't like. And imo, it is hardier than gator or croc.

I think Genejockey has noted that it has a certain heft to it when wearing it.
