Inside my vintage Longines

I wrote a piece about a vintage Longines I knew nothing about. I opened it up, and now I know some.

My beautiful
German automatic

The gallery below says it all: It is a German Kemmner Tonneau automatic watch with a Swiss ETA 2824-2 movement.

Fantastic watch. Just google Erkahund and you will find it. I love it, and have been using it as a everyday watch – but I guess it is really a dress watch. A special one.

Ticking classic from the Swiss knife maker

The Victorinox Swiss Army Alliance fits nicely into my mighty (:-)) watch collection: A Bulova Precisionist Claremont, a vintage Longines gold dress watch and a Timex DataLink 150 (vintage too, I guess. And certified by NASA for space travel).

And many of these people are people with no name. I’m not saying they do anything harmful. I know many of them to be of the most honest kind.

What a nice watch!

I got myself a new watch, the Bulova Precisionist Claremont. At about 170 USD from its a bargain. The continuously sweeping second hand is impressive, and it looks fantastic. Some say it is big, but the curved design makes it just right.

The only detail I’m not entirely sure about is the faux croc strap. I might do as this guy: Get a replacement.
