Hey Bob...let's see em!
That's, why we are on TFL and not watch-communities, haha!
The "Chronograph" wristwatch-thing doesn't seem to be very popular in old Germany.
The only time, I saw an adult with an chronograph, was my ethics-teacher (age 57) in the early 5th class, but he was and is not a poser. So, it must have surely been a fine and not-cheap chronograph. I can't remember exacty, but I think, the dial was a blue one. That was in late 1995.
But I think, he surely bought this watch after german reunification, so, probably a classic brand model from around 1990.
There were several German watch makers in 'Old Germany' who made chronographs and regarding your teacher, well he could have been wearing a Russian or DDR made chronographic watch. I recall a East German watch maker called Ruhla who made 'big' watches in the 1970s and I'm guessing that there were other makers too.
That's possible, but I think, his watch looked like a more or less contemporary (maybe sporty) western massmarket chronograph. The complications were classic layout, two horizontal - one down, as far as I remember.
My brother-in-law once gave me a
Looks so real from a distance!
I luv it!
Amen Brother. The fashion for plate-sized sports watches with horrendous, busy dials makes no sense to me. I was talking to a wealthy Estate Agent this Christmas and he had no idea what all the little sub-dials on his watch actually did - it was simply to look impressive. I would rather wear a $50 plain Timex than a $50,000 Swiss made vulgarity.
Double Amen !
I hear you brother!
My standard hoster from Germany wants registration now, so, I will upload directly from now on.
Just for fun, my beloved stainless steel 28mm easy reader from Karstadt.
And always paying attention, that a new watch got a minute-index.
Who really wants a "guessometer"??
Just easy reader fun, again. The blue of my two 40mm, I bought before the 28mm. Excellent to read in every situation.
Sorry, loungers. Resistance was futile, again.
On Tuesday, I was in department store and bought a new pair of boots. And since we are already there, we of course sneak over to the good old watch department, again.
In the last weeks, I was still in the mood for nice new "Gelsenkirchener Barock". But like I said before, Festina with their "Extra"-series didn't made the deal and I finally gave up the idea of getting the Citizen "ER0203-00B". But this nice storebrand one for the ladies (26 mm diameter) haunted in my head, the last weeks, too. So now, I just grabbed it. And despite the white dial, it's astonishing easy to read! And I got now a classic, creamy 50s-watch, like I wanted.
Is it for sale or just on display?
I do like the plain Submariner. My daily driver these days is an Invicta Submariner homage; had I the money to sink into a serious watch, I would be looking at a model similar to that Macqueen one - or, more likely, the Tudor model.
Don't know, but if it's for sale, it's
going to be $$$$$$
"Actor, Director, and Producer Paul Newman, whose achievements on the big screen has hardly been contended, owned a Rolex Daytona amongst his most prized possessions. At an auction in October 2017, Newman’s watch sold for over $17.8 million after fees and percentages, setting a record for most valuable watch sold at an auction"

I used to own a similar jacket like McQueen's.
I recall the jacket would have a green color
when I wore it outside. Inside a room,
the jacket would have another color hue.
