And Three Big Boys, from John P . . .

Just spotted this photo, on Instagram, from john_p82 --

Loving these old ones lately!! Amazing to see the white / tobacco / black, in the line.



: New arrival, and it really makes the Geiger counter sing, with
: lots of radium on the dial and hands.

: Heuer Reference 2447, "Radium" version (per the catalog),
: with Arabic numerals on the silver dial. Companion model had the
: black dial, with gilt accents. This one gets all the points for
: originality . . . a true tool watch, with the radium burns on
: the dial to prove it.

: The Reference 2447 was introduced in the early 1940s, but the
: serial number probably puts this one in the 1950s.

: Anyone else wearing anything interesting today?

: Jeff
