And so after a few gloomy rainy days the sun is back again. It's time to get the Bulova Accutron II out since it's big and black and covered with glass, which makes it look like a solar panel. Maybe I can hook it to my water heater and save some cash.
The black PVD coating on the case and the reflective glass created a bit of a challenge here and I had to play for quite some time with angles and rotating the polarizing filter to catch the glitter of the glass and bracelet without crushing the black and losing details.
Still, not a complete success because I could not get rid completely of the reflections from the crystal (which is enormous), and from the bracelet.
I realized that there are very few video showing how smooth the second's hand of an Accutron II is. The few I found online were very old and not very good IMO, so below is my modest contribution to YT.
And now all that is left for me to do is strap the large Lobster on my wrist and finish my coffee. Cheers!
I'm a big fan of watches that are interesting because they are either unique, have interesting features, well designed or simply offer a great value for their price.
