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

Intra-Matic Pole Star for Tuesday
signed strap / buckle
Believe this was a European export but not sure

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.
