ALRIGHT!!

Welcome to the club Stephen!!  I wondered if this model had moved up a notch on your 'favorites' list? If you're like me, you'll have this watch on everyday for the next month, maybe two.

And to think, you could have bought it for $125 in 1970.

Bravo

In 1970 I was a mere 2 years old!

Sometimes a man has gotta do what a man's gotta do.....

The LE is going up for sale soon to pay for this one....its a tough call but I finally decided to make this the No.1 on the wish list....oh and yes I very much doubt it will leave my wrist for the next 12 months!!

I'm constantly looking at things to time......you know my microwave is pretty accurate....well according the the "Chrono C" it is.

Oh and I wonder just how many of these they actually made and for how long they were in production. It appears they were all made in 1970.

Great looking watch!  Not a chrono expert myself  but I think that the movement might not be a 7733.  Doesn't the 7733 have only 2 registers?  Maybe it's a 7736??
