I like that a lot.
I have the Laco version.
Those are nice.
Talking of unusual space watches I have this Fortis Cosmonaut, worn on the ISS.
Those are great! Love vintage Seiko but I only have one left, a SpeedTimer.

It’s a great and funny read, an impressive collection, and a good history lesson. Here’s just “some” of his collection:
Mine's a Steinhart, I think Laco is more true to the original. Weren't they in fact one of the two manufacturers of the originals?
Yes I find the white dial easy to read, and surprisingly it works well as an everyday watch in the office. I had originally figured it would be more of a change of pace type thing.
Yes, I've seen that collection before.
Fortunately with Seiko on the dial you can pick up some quality watches cheap.
Steinberg eh? A great looker.
Laco were indeed an original maker. Mine's a modern reissue from them.
Sorry no pics, I am away from home at the moment.
No Steinhart, I mistyped.
You might also consider that the cost, here in Dublin, of getting your Datejust serviced at the authorized retailer, which cost me €650.00 a few years ago. You can buy some very good watches for that!
That was a brown leather one, which reminds me! Need to head to the post office this week!
I need to get the crystal replaced as it’s very scratched and that stretchy bracelet HAS to go. Hideous.
I’m thinking of a thick black leather or navy strap.
You can polish out the scratches in the Crystal with Brasso.
If you wait until I get home in mid December I'll see if I have a strap for it.
Mum has some brasso, I’m seeing her Tuesday so I’ll give it a go!
There’s no rush with the strap, but would be interesting to see what you have lurking, Neil.
Here’s a daylight shot.
You guys! I'm down to 4-5. My grandfather's first "real" gold pocket watch on the U.S. railroad that he carried for the first half of his career from the 20's til the 50's. My Dad's gold watch from the 50's, the watch that my brother carried back when they knocked down the 'Berlin Wall' in Germany that has a piece of "The Wall" on the face, and two Seikos- A Quartz that I wear almost daily, and a self-wind Seiko that I don't wear often.
I have a similarly styled Self Dater.
that looks great! Looks like Seiko used the same dial but added different bits for different models.
WoW! What a thread!
I love guitars...and watches.
Here comes the heavy hitters!
Today, a WWII « Naïad ».
With a 23.4SC manual wind mouvement inside, dated 1939.
That's lovely, gorgeous old example.
I have a wartime calibre 30, no pic unfortunately until I get home.
Your JLC is pretty special too.
