Happy Lunar New Year!

Been busy and not sure what the rest of 2013 has in store but am hopeful things will get better :) A happy lunar new year to folks who pass by this way and do enjoy the time with friends and family. Valentine's also finished yesterday. Hope you all had a romantic and happy time on the occasion.

As part of the lunar greetings... 2 moon watches say hi, separated by 50+ years and both wonderful timepieces

a difference noted was the shape of the lugs. more obvious in the pic above, apart from some other minor changes through the 50 years :)
a proud caseback and rightly so
 other minor differences... no applique logo, super luminova vs tritium
 both wonderful timepieces...

Gong Xi Fa Cai to you and your family Raphael. All the best for the year of the snake.

Amazing how timeless this watch can be. I have been learning more and more about the moonwatch and I am being impressed by it more and more.

What's even more amazing is that you can pick up a new one for a descent price (considering where some of these Swiss watch prices are heading) or a vintage one for a descent price as well. Either way, you get a little piece of history and an iconic watch on your wrist.

50 years from now, when I'm old and wrinkled, I will still be able to wear a moonwatch and it will still be as timeless then and it is today.
