In praise of the 3706
Nothing deep to offer here, I just wanted to toss in a little post in praise of the original Fliegerchronograph, which is in a sense my favorite watch in my collection.
It's not the most valuable watch I own, by a long shot, and it certainly has less 'horological value' than many others--indeed than most others--I own. Just a solid, sensibly-sized chronograph with a Valjoux 7750.
But I don't know, every time I wear it, I wonder why I've wasted so much money on all these other watches, when this thing is such a perfect everyday companion. If I were a one-watch man, that watch would be this.
