It’s a sterile flieger, Sea-Gull clone of the Unitas inside a 44mm case. Made by some AliExpress-based brand called Geervo. A rather obvious homage to the IWC Big Pilot than to the B-Uhr itself. Well...we’ll see what it’s like when it arrives.
But hey... I am the VINTAGE bloke. With my birthday being just a few days away, I’ve been looking for a gift from myself to myself. My good friend got me a deal, and this is on its way to me:
Eterna bumper auto from the 1940s, full steel case with a bubble-ish screw-down back. It will receive a new crystal, and a thorough case cleaning.
Accompanying the Eterna will be this:
...a tank Rodana from the same period, although in a more Art-Deco style. Two-tone dial, the Fab. Suisse marking indicates a piece made for the French market.
Did I stop there? No.
As a finishing touch, I ordered this Bonklip-style 18mm bracelet on Etsy. Here’s hoping that Eterna bumper has 18mm lugs...
I will, of course, do a complete write-up once I receive all the parcels. In the meantime... It just feels good to be back.
Mr. Bloke out.
