Ball Fireman Racer Classic

This would be my first mechanical timepiece. If you want to tell the time, a sundial might make do. My best guess on the fascination with auto watches has to do with the historical craft of mechanical time keeping and their array of movements. Some can run up to the price of cars (for watches with less consistency than a 100 dollar quartz watch).

I love clean and salient dials. This one has nice shiny markers coupled with a copper dial with a brushed metallic look.

The macro lens is revealing all sorts of dust; I should have given it a good wipe. I’ll post more photos in time to come.
