Tuesday Speedmaster. 3 specimens.

A dream of a CK 2998: 

Another tropical CK 2998, but with questionable hands: 

And for the good measure, a superb CK 2998 specimen, with a great black dial: 

Who could guess that one day, I would start a Speedie Tuesday?  wink

. . . Flighty Friday! [ Ca '69 Ω ref 145.013 cal 910] Pic taken last night on my way to a pool match at Maggie's. Did well, won the lion's share of bank-the-eight games, including a phenomenal long two-rail shot on the 8 at an odd angle. Gotta chalk it up...

. . . go for Rails. Not to mention Ploprofs. But only a handful bow before . . . . . . the ineffable Flightmaster. ;-) ...  

I did let go one few years ago

With a dial that was starting to get tropical. I regret it so much. Anyway, beautiful watch Art. Best. René
