Another get together in mid April

My friend just got back from his Eurpoean trip, and some of us decided to meet up and see his newly-acquired watch. Nomos is originated from Eastern Germany (a small town called Glashutte). The watch is stunning and high value for your money. Can't go wrong with Nomos.

Another friend of mine brought a Patek Nautilus 5726 triple date moonphase. I was in awe with its impeccable quality, beautifully finished, and complicated movement. What an eye candy.

Great watches, great friendship! Thanks guys!

Once Upon a Time in early April

Me and my watch lover buddies from Jakarta sometimes meet for a quick GTG, just to have a great conversation about watches and other stuff. From GTG I learnt more and more about other brands and models (both vintage and modern) that I previoulsy didn't know about.

This time it was held at a prominent shopping mall at Senayan sometime in early April.

Breitling Chronomat GT ref. B13050.1

This is the first automatic chronograph watch I fell in love with. I bought it around year 2000-01 (don't remember exactly when) from an internet grey dealer.

What's not to like about this watch? NONE!
I love its deep blue dial
I love the yellow subdials
I love blued chronograph hands
I love two-tone combinations of blue and yellow gold. I think Blue/YG is the best combination compared to Black/YG ......pun intended.

Production year: 1997-2000
Case diameter: 40mm
Thickness: 14.7mm
Movement: Breitling caliber 13 (based on val 7750)
Case and bracelet: polished stainless steel
Crown, pusher, and 4 marks on top of bezel: 18k YG
Crystal: sapphire with dual AR coating
Original Strap: pilot bracelet
Lug size: 20mm

Weight: 80grams watch only, exclude bracelet

During the 90's there were two kinds of Chronomats:

1. Chronomat GT like mine...GT stands for Grand Totaliser. Chronomat GT uses Baton indices on the dial.

2. Chronomat Vitesse...Vitesse in French means SPEED. Chronomat Vitesse uses large arabic indices on the dial, IMHO making the dials look very busy. I still prefer the old fashioned baton indices from the GT.

Both case and pilot bracelet are mirror, shiny polished. Some may like it but others (like me) don't. That's why I leather-strapped it to make it look casual.

Before year 2000, Breitling did not put its watches to COSC certification, therefore no "Chronometre" letter on both dial and caseback. However Breitling claims that watches with COSC and non-COSC have exactly the same movement grade.

The watch is no longer in my possession ... maybe if I'm lucky enough I'll be able to get it back in the future.

Enjoy few pics taken by a good friend of mine:

SOLD: Seiko vintage diver 6309-7049

For Sale is my longtime collection of cushion case diver 6309-7049.

The -7049 marking means this watch was originally sold to North American market, as opposed to -7040 marking (Asian Market).

Condition is very good and clean, as you can see from the pictures.
All parts are original.

The watch has been recently overhauled and regulated by a local Seiko watchmaker in Jakarta.
After the service, the accuracy is somewhere between -4 to -7 secs/day in various positions. It's actually very good considering its age.

Production date: April 1982.

Watch is SOLD!!!

Fortis Official Cosmonauts Chronograph

Here is my most loved Fortis. This Fortis was originally issued only for those who got accepted at Russian Space Program (real cosmonaut). That is why I was unable to find out its origin and production year (possibly mid 90s)

Everything about this watch seemed perfect to me:
Perfect diameter 38mm for my 6.5" wrist
Perfect black matte dial, highly legible
Perfect painted arabic indexes and hands, highly legible
Perfect dual AR coating
Perfect Lemania 5100 movt, which is (possibly) the toughest, most shock-proof, and RARE.

But not so perfect:
Sandblast finish, it's a bitch to maintain and inability to get polished when scratched.

Note: Orange painted hands are chronograph hands!!!

Do you know that Lemania 5100 can withstand acceleration/deceleration in excess of 7G without enormous accuracy loss? That's why it used to be the chronograph movement of choice for watch manufacturers who supplied to the military, such as SINN, FORTIS, TUTIMA.
