I see the resemblance .
yes, yes. the 1950s design for watches are automobile-inspired ones...

like doc's watch which is more aerodynamic. oh yes, your database published earlier was very useful. thank u.
I promise not to bid! But as you I like rectangular watches!

doc, thank u for not bidding. :) not only do i like rectangular watch.

i like most of yr watches. yr watch is more than rectangular, it's aerodynamic and speaks slow charm. i have seen pics of the movement of yr watch, it is immaculate ! i wish i will not be dissapointed with the upcoming piece. yr piece is a sports car whereas the topolino is a mouse -looking car fiat.
Go for it a.ler!

Always follow your own instinct, that I have learned me. Alex as the gentleman he is, once stepped aside for a watch, a beautiful tonneau, so I could bid and get it! But, I never liked that watch as much as I knew Alex did, so after a couple months it was Alex who was the owner I think the Toppolino is a very nice and typical VC - different! I do hope to see you presenting it here! Good luck Doc
This is the watch that really sealed our friendship and has kept

Love it! Love you, Alex Doc
Also an interesting 6782

Antiquorum is offering a Thunderbird ref 6782 with vertical applied indexes.  The bezel also shows it's original red and black markers. This piece was also up for auction in 2007.  Appears that a restoration is needed.
yes this is also interesting and the condition of it is much better ..
