 By: blomman Mr Blue : April 12th, 2016-02:24
Friends, Five years ago today, I posted a photo of this ad: If you do a search here in the JLC forum “Where the unusual is commonplace” you will find it… The ad is an English ad from 1958 with the header “Where the unusual is commonplace”. Under the heade...

Blomman, I love to read/see your historical posts. More, please. Cheers, Nilo

History teaches us a lot from where we come....

 By: blomman Mr Blue : April 12th, 2016-13:47
But also explains where we are headed! Thank you, Nilo - will see, I have a few (hundred) more ads I could post here... Best Blomman

Ahahaha! Love you post dear Blomman and admire your patience.....

 By: Sandgroper : April 12th, 2016-02:46 now you need the one designed especially for communications executives and "Southern Europeans" world travelers In the Land Down Under, you may find one made out of eucalyptus tree, very sturdy and versatile, also used to make didgeridoo! It will sin... 

Eucalyptus tree?! :)

 By: blomman Mr Blue : April 12th, 2016-13:49
I never had a eucalyptus tree watch or a watch from down under... Would love to add one to the collection! Yes, dear Francois - depending on where my journey go, I should choose my travel watch carefully! Best Blomman

Well done my friend. All things come to him who waits !

 By: Clavi : April 12th, 2016-08:36
Congratulations ! I was almost feeling ashamed to be the 'Lucky bastardo' who had delayed you 4 years in completing your evil plan (well...not really ;-) ) Great find of yours. Now, we officially know of 3 of those 'official and genuine' 3160 Worltdime, w... 

Ah! The Lucky Bastardo! ;)

 By: blomman Mr Blue : April 12th, 2016-13:56
I knew this post would call you out, my friend! Would love to read the story of your find. In fact, I know of a forth, also steel version. So in total: 1 gold, 3 steel. We should make a trio shot next time we meet - would be historical! Best Blomman

Very cool!....

Can we get a close-up of the International version? I like that dial better than the recent release. -Dean

I prefer this kind of dial as well....

Same way as on the patent drawing from 1957: Best Blomman ...  

+1. By far. [nt]

Or in this case, the same but in different metal.... Best, my friend Blomman

Awesome focused collection

 By: reintitan : April 17th, 2016-19:00
Just nuts! I love it. I admit the E168 in stainless steel is my grail and the only watch I "must" have next. Everything else on my want list is just icing on the cake.

Nuts? Yes, definetly! :)

 By: blomman Mr Blue : April 17th, 2016-23:54
But not focused enough since I still miss one.... Best Blomman
