Sorry to disappoint but this is my go to watch for 90% of the time. Garmin 235. Step counter, heart rate monitor, built in GPS, doubles as a cycle computer and tells me what my phone is trying to tell me (25 notifications....). Waterproof, shockproof and dustproof. It can't take photos or play music - but I have a telephone for that ;)

1:30pm and only 2500 steps. Shameful!

Broke out the Decagon this week, on a "Kitchner style" strap.

Nice Watches... Especially the Garmin! :D

This 56' Transcontinental A (I'm wearing today) with the NOS Kreisler bracelet, has been a work in progress. I have, with the support of Jim combined two of the NOS Kreisler bracelets to get this to fit my wrist (6 3/8"). The bracelet is set up now as a "long" would have come from Kreisler factory with 16 sections on either side of the center of the back. Although I have never seen one! ;) I have a spare dial and it will be going in soon to be refinished.

Some of these projects just take time and patience to find the parts.
