    Default My latest marine-themed addition

    A Baylor diver, c.1970 I guess. Starfish logo on rear. Apparently has a nice Glycine movement in it (although I haven't had the back off). Doesn't carry the Baylor logo on the face tho...




    Automatic movement. Seems to be running well. Nice face, quite clean but the lume's faded. Showing it's age I guess...






    Very thin bezel on it. Non-ratcheting. Would be quite difficult to use underwater, I would think. Crown is unsigned.



    But a very nice (if scratched) "Starfish" logo on the back... echinadermata-tastic.



    Anyway. I rather like it. Quite subdued. Need to find a better strap tho...

    Like your Starfish logo....
    The watch is simplicity itself from the styling 70's?.

    Needs a strap, a rubber or one of Al's would do the trick. I've seen a few Baylors around recently but not one of those. Well done on the find Mat...

    Cheers mate. I like it too. Has quite a nice, slightly recessed, slightly domed acrylic crystal on it too, which is rather pleasing. Good idea re the strap. Will have to ask Al for one of his rubber ones. Didn't see them when I was checking out the ATG Credit Crunch sale the other day...

    Seller's original pic of the movement:



    Looks nice and clean. It came on a rubber strap, but didn't feel right. Could try it on the chunky rubber the Seiko Sumo comes with...?

    Nice Mat... really cool watch i think....

    The glycine movement may be A. Schild but closer pics or any signature on teh movement would be useful. Look below the balance... which is the spining wheel....

    Anyway, its a cool little watch proving that you don't need to spend a load of cash to have something nice... I always love the groovy case back engravings...... go over to EOT Dive and introduce yourself there... they love those watches.....
