Happy Christmas!

It’s that time of year again, I’m starting my break for the festivities at the end of today and I wish all my readers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy new year! I won’t be entirely idle as I hope to publish a few articles about some interesting jobs I’ve had on the bench recently but let’s get past the roast turkey and mince pies first 🙂

Today I’ve been reflecting on the past year and all the different jobs I’ve taken on, some great, some incredibly frustrating but ultimately all satisfying in one way or another. I then glanced at my final test windmill as it slowly rotated and thought I have the best job in the world. I’ve pulled the watches off the windmill to take a few pictures for you but where else would I get to work on a selection of beautiful watches like these! From left to right, the first ever Grand Seiko the calbre 3180 J14070GS, next is the manual wind Grand Seiko calibre 430 43999, next door to that is Seikos first ever 300m diver the 6215-7000, bottom row far left is Seikos first ever professional 300m diver the high beat 6159-7001, next is a platinum cased Queen Seiko and finally a 1940’s Zias triple register chronograph powered by a Landeron calibre42 movement. For a vintage Seiko nut like me it’s pure heaven!
