Re: I Am Chasing the Olive Green Brother

: I am currently chasing the olive brother - - -

Nice finds Jeff! On you know where Ebay there has been the Green Day/date modle that never sells for 1100.00 I find it by using the search "5100 chrono*" I have seen it 2 times this month. The 5100 will spoil you as it seems so easy to read and time things. I always keep trying to where other chronos as I like the movements of a more complicated works. but always go back to some make 5100 movment watch. The 5100 is very easy to service like a big clock, only thig takes a good watchmaker is the topside daydate , leavers. etc.

I see that your gray/silver one has the more stright min. counter and the black one has the more jet style. The books make these out to be 28,800 beet movments, but thay also have the slower beet. Have you looked close start the timer and see you can see the differance if you have the slower one. I have the slow beet on one of mine and it is the only one I have with the none jet type min counter. I have been trying to find out for years if this was a mark of a differnt beet.
