There are precious few watches in my collection which I have not removed the caseback for a peek at the movement. What can I say? I'm the curious sort. Blushing

So. When I realized today that I'd never done so on the watch I was wearing on me left wrist.. well, sure I broke out the Jaxa Tool and had a look-see!

The Big Pilot Power Reserve GMT Automatic, of course. My favorite Alpha by a Country Mile. WIS Honeymoon As I've mentioned before, I believe. Smile

Big surprise! Oops! Honestly, I'd expected a plastic movement-spacer ring. Crazy! Loco!

Not this finely machined solid hunk o' stainless steel! I am confused

After seeing this, α just went way up in my estimation! Thumbs up!





Sláinte! Cheers!

"He looked down through the scratched, greenish glass that topped the counter. Watches there, each face to him a tiny and contained poem, a pocket museum, subject over time to the laws of entropy and of chance. These tiny mechanisms, their jeweled hearts beating. Wearing down, he knew, through the friction of metal on metal. He sold nothing unserviced, everything cleaned and lubricated. He took fresh stock to a sullen but highly skilled Pole in Oakland to be cleaned, oiled, and timed. And he did this, he knew, not to provide a better, more reliable product, but to ensure that each one might better survive in an essentially hostile universe. It would have been difficult to admit this to anyone, but it was true and he knew it. --William Gibson, narrative describing Fontaine, All Tomorrow's Parties

I've actually seen that type of spacer on watches you would never think would go down that road....

I don't believe it was Ricky's intent to show off the size of the spacer rather...

Chris L155July 08, 2012 11:10PM

I fully understood that...I am confused
