Monday, November 10, 2014 - Watch-o-the-Day #4

This is a really old swiss Rouan Sport mechanical watch.  It has a stopwatch in the purest sense: the top button stopped it and the bottom button started it.  There is no way to reset the second hand to zero.  It has no significant value but it still runs and has a cool retro look to it.  Probably the most interesting thing is the band, a Speidel expandable that has a 1972 calendar in it.  Each year I'd buy a little drop in cartridge that had a scrolling calendar that showed a whole month at a time.

The hand may look a little worse today...  had a bit of an itchfest today.
