Whatever comes in the door ... Part 1

Jan 25, 2024,18:31 PM

Hello Gents,

I have been sorting through images on my hard drive and was amused by the variety of watches that friends and acquaintances (or enemies?) have dropped into my hand, asking "Can you fix this for me?"

I thought perhaps a few views of rare or common watches in unusual condition or opened for inspection, might be worth a glance. So shall we start here? These came to me in summer of 2021.

I will comment on the pieces if there is interest. Please let me know in the comments below and be sure to smash the Like Button (oops! this isn't YouTube is it?)

I know nothing about it but here are the markings ...  

There’s no watch inside that case, just a compass, but

I did have an IWC compass watch come through: ...  

This one is very nice, and practical.

But it says Porsche Design. Is there a separate IWC? I really like how they incorporated the compass here.👌🏽

This is a remake of that iconic watch

It was released about 5-6 years ago.

So a recent remake.

That compass in the second to last photo is awesome!

I might have to borrow that from you someday if I ever get my Scuba Orienteering certification.

I’m sure my friend would sell the watch

I don’t think he ever wears it

Good to know!
