Seiko Speedmaster reissue Ayrton Senna

I remember when this watch came out the original. I thought it was so cool. Has anyone purchased one of these?

Re: Guinand

They seem to use top grade movements as well, and then regulate them at Guinand once it's set in the watch before they ship . Mine is at less than 1 sec per day it gains +5/wk

Re: Guinand

They really are an under-rated brand I decided to wear mine today. The movement looks to be a top grade 7750 nicely decorated with flared 'spokes" on the wheel

Re: German Watch Maker?

So I have exchanged an email with Dekla, and they are very accommodating. They fill custom requests so I'm going to order a 40mm pilot with the white lume (not aged), blued hands, and a normal crown. I'm interested to see how it looks and the quality of it

Re: wristwatches with pocket watch movements

I'm thinking of another pilots watch built, looking at a Hamilton 921 movement even higher grade than the 917 and beautiful. DO I really need another watch? 1 for each day for the week..... how many do you have? I actually love these Hamilton and 6497/8 powered watches. Robust and workhorses! well ...

Re: wristwatches with pocket watch movements

reply yes I have a PAM type homage. The only downside to these movements are their size, so you'll never fit one in a case with sub proportions so your limited in style. Here is my Pam homage case, sorry I suck at photography

Re: wristwatches with pocket watch movements

Most pocket watch movements don't have sufficient shock protection to function in a wrist watch - that's why it's not more common. Yes JP I had heard this as well. According to my watch guy this has been blown out of proportion especially with these Hamilton size 10 calibers. As I said Ive worn thi...
