Hi!

What are you wearing today?

This week, it´s my 1958/59 Green Horse with 30 jw-AS 1580, running very exactly. It still has a "R"-signed crown.

Just home from work, beer in the fridge and my recent purchase Purple Horse on my wrist! All's well with the world! :)

This week, it´s my 1957 Military with 17 jw.-AS 1130 Wehrmachtswerk. It still has the older "R-line"-logo on the back. The enamelled dial looks still perfectly, the case is unfortunately a chrome plated brass one, which shows some traces of it´s age.

Rado Chrono - prototype with Valjoux 7758 and Valjoux-dial:



@Henry - the Manhattan looks great with the 7-row NSA, seems to be in nice condition!

Hey Mike- is that the one you got from Sinn? It looks good.

Thanks for the compliment on the Manhattan but that watch is no longer mine. I passed it on to Cindy on Tuesday.

This is my new Manhattan:





Of course, it no longer looks like that. It now looks like this:




.


The case is much sharper than the old one and the dial does not have any gasket damage.

Hi Henry!

Great work on the "new" Manhattan - as usual.
"Gasket damage" - that says anything to me.
My Manhattan is in good condition - except one corner of the dial. But I love the amber colour. Impossible to find the same dial in NOS.
Looked like yours when it arrived.











A friend of mine does spot repairs on cars and has a very fine airbrush equipment, also a colour mixing system. If we´re able to mix the right colour(which needs some tests on aluminium), I will try to refinish the small corner only, covering the rest. Hope it works.

I'd put up with that damage on that colour dial too. It is too nice. You did a nice job of resurrecting that one too.

I noticed I put a duplicate picture in the last post. This is the one I meant ot include:
