Good morning, America! Home of the free and brave! A big congratulations to our Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad's maiden trip of the historic Nickel Plate 765 Steam Locomotive. Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner on a three hour tour of Ohio's heritage aboard an elegant coach and dinner train. Timepieces and trains have a deep heritage in Ohio. The Ball Watch Co. and the official RR standard was founded and ran in Cleveland, Ohio before going out of business in 1962 and later revived by the Swiss. The standards were so strict the Swiss adopted them and inspired the COSC, which is where Swiss watchmakers get their "precision driven" standards and marketing. #watches#timepiece#watchmaking#horology#watchesofinstagram#americanwatchmaker#madeinusa 🇺🇸 #themadeinamericamovement#nawcc#museumoftime
Week of Watches day 6 feature: Breitling Colt Chronograph A73350. This will be my last Week of Watches post (I know short of 7 days but oh well..), so thank you all for bearing with me 😅. This particular piece utilizes the Breitling 73 SuperQuartz movement- although I'm not the biggest fan of quartz movements, I was intrigued by the claims of far greater accuracy over traditional quartz. This watch is special to me, because it is truly the first "big boy" watch I was able to purchase for myself! While it is definitely an entry level piece, the craftsmanship is excellent. I've put this piece in a setting that encompasses two of my favorite cities: NYC and Jersey City. I didn't know what to expect living in this area, city life was all new to me. Needless to say after a year here, I love it ❤️. It has been fun sharing my small collection with you all! I hope it has been enjoyable 😁 #breitling#watch#horology#time#timepiece#swiss#quartz#superquartz#steel#chronograph#menswear#style#NYC#manhattan#hudson#jerseycity
A high-intensity titanium case with hi-beat 36000 GMT, this beauty incorporates Caliber 9S86, the high-specification movement that delivers the same accuracy (-5 to +3 seconds a day) and the same power reserve (55 hours) as the core Caliber 9S85, while also offering the GMT function that the international traveller needs to ensure that the accuracy of the time shown is not compromised when the time zone is changed.
It makes a perfect companion to bring along for your business trips or holidays.
