WristScan: My dad was flying in the early 50's too

The Navy kept several squadrons here - they landed in the San Diego bay and taxied up to these giant hangars on North Island (now a historical monument) now the hangars are filled with helicopters and the bay with boats. No flying planes. Mike

I think that’s how it starts ... doesn’t it? Same with Kurt Klaus, only I have had 3-4 of his. And Paul Gerber, several of his. And G-R Lang - multiple Chronoswiss Oechslin & Beat = two Ochs & junior Best way to get hooked is to meet the makers, I think. (Before they meet their maker!)

Horological Meandering: You do have a sickness

I'M GOING TO MOVE THIS THREAD TO Horological Meandering If it bothers you, don't buy a cheaper watch, save for a better one. As they say, "the road to hell is paved with good intentions" and what you will do (if you have this sickness) is end up with 20-40-60-80 cheap watches. I know, I have done it
