Re: New to me. Glycine Combat 6

I like these Glycine field watches. I've been thinking about getting the Combat 7 because it's smaller, at 41mm, and would be a better fit for my wrist size. https://www.amazon.com/Glycine-Combat-Vintage-Automatic-GL0238/dp/B07G4D25ZY Ever thought of getting one of there originals from there heyday...

Re: I collect stuff that goes with my Militray watches a few pilot wings

Well I added some stuff this week to go with my US Navy ships clocks. I bought two climometers they had them on the bridge of the ship. It told you in degrees how bad the ship is rolling and in a typhoon you see it do some weird stuff. https://i.imgur.com/XO1FUTe.jpg https://i.imgur.com/9ipKC9M.jpg ...

Re: Bee's

My neighbor does this hobby glad he does it his bees do a good job of pollinating my apple trees. Apple tree's need different type apple tree's and be cross pollinated to produce apple's. Looks like a good hobby. The last two years I had a bumper crop of apples due to those bee's.
