    Here's a 1969 (M9) manual wind I wear once in a while. Any other 60's dress watches out there?

    I just picked up a M9 "Sea King" which looks very muck like yours. My hands are a little different, and the back of mine is 10K not SS. Put a Hirsch black croc band on her and she's beautiful!!

    Digital crash course:
    1) look for the button with the little flower for shooting macro
    2) keep the camera as steady as possible, tripod preferred (they're under $20 for cheap ones)
    3) angle the watch a little to minimize the crystal reflecting the camera's face.
    4) shoot LOADS of pictures - doesn't cost any extra and you can delete the bad ones
    5) be aware of your reflection as well - set the timer and back away
    6) never overdo the saturation, temperature or other adjustments when editing, and avoid them completely if possible - less is more and it will keep your pictures from getting grainy
    7) use Photobucket as a host but DO NOT use the editing features beyond resizing - you'll ruin the detail for some reason.


    NOW GET US SOME PHOTOS PLEASE!!!!!
