Marathon of the Crown
For all the pandemic I have not worn my beloved GMT Perpetual. A few days ago, I retrieved it from the bank vault to wear it through this New Year's eve.The dial showed January 27, 2020, so nearly three years separated the watch and today.
So I started to whirl the crown, not overly fast, in order not to damage something in the geartrain, but also not too slow - I did not plan to spend the entire afternoon setting the perpetual calendar. Despite a small handicap - I have a small knifecut on my index finger's tip, so this could not used for winding the crown, I needed exactly five minutes and 26 seconds to completely set the correct time and date on the GMT Perpetual. This, dear Ladies and Gentlemen, is a good movement construction!
