Lately, My Most Worn Watch

OK, Chuck. I'll happily take the blame for pointing you towards this one.

Lately, this watch is probably getting more "wrist time" than any other watch in my collection. It's the one that I switch into when I get home at night, as it is comfortable and legible (particularly visible in the dark of night).

It also ranks among the more photogenic of the watches . . . those flat crystals make for easy targets.

Thanks for the "blame". I am truly honored!




: Since I started off all this foolishness with
: my post last week (my favorite SummerTime
: Watch Story) I get to repost it as my
: "Blame Game" post:

: Jeff contacted me one day a couple of months
: back excited about a watch that he saw on
: eBay, not at all atypical, and he was
: wondering if I might be interested in it if
: he got it but decided it wasn't for him. I
: looked over the listing said, "yeah,
: that's a cool watch, I am pretty sure you'll
: love it, but if you decide you aren't
: interested I'd be interested in it up to
: $xxx.xx. So the auction nears it's end, Jeff
: prevails and I get to wait while the watch
: is in transit to Jeff to see if I'm on the
: hook for this watch that Jeff bought.

: Jeff get's the watch, which is a departure for
: him, and ... and... he loves it... Which is
: great... Except, I'm kinda wishing Jeff had
: decided he didn't want it...

: Usually I'm the one people blame for getting
: them interested in a watch they buy! Sheesh!

: So I start trolling eBay in search of the
: identical twin brother of Jeff's watch. It
: takes me a couple of weeks, (closer to a
: month), but finally I find one, win th
: auction (at $120 more than Jeff paid BTW)
: and I get to wait while the watch is in
: transit while I'm on the hook.

: When I get it, no surprises it's exactly as I
: expected it'd be. Nice watch.






: This is basically a Sinn 144 Titanium Dual
: Time Chronograph that was produced by Sinn.
: Size is 44mm x 41mm w/o crown (44mm with) by
: 14.25 mm thick. The 25 jewel Valjoux 7750
: movement displayed nicely through the
: sapphire back. Water Resistance 10 bars, 100
: meters or 330 feet. The Katun Corp.
: contracted Sinn for a limited production run
: of these watches which had there logo placed
: on the dial as they where intended for
: purchase by employees. Apparently there were
: only 100 of these watches produced with this
: logo.

: What I didn't expect was this watch would
: monopolize my wrist for such a long time
: after I received her. I've worn other
: watches for a day. Another watch purchase
: for a day when I got it, but the rest of the
: time 24/7 it's been on my wrist.

: So, I don't get to say this often... Someone
: else's interest in a watch made me buy one
: myself! It's all your fault Jeff!!!

: Cheers!
