Hi, Wayne. Now you are a Super Member, please use the "Place Inline" button when you post your hairy-wrist pics.

Many thanks for your support.

You're not alone in not finding it, Wayne.

When you have uploaded your pics, you can find the "Place inline" buttons below the message panel. There you will see a list of the pics that you have uploaded (POSTED ATTACHMENTS) and next to each one is the elusive button. Each pic can be placed at the point where you position your cursor in the body of the message each time. This allows you to compose your message with more creativity, and the unsightly "attachment" border will be removed.

You can post up to eight attachments with each message - no need to post a new message for each pic.

A 1972 Accutron 666 ft. diver. I wouldn't wear it in the shower 'til I get the crystal replaced . I didn't have a 344 battery so I put in a smaller diameter one with some rodico until I get to the store. This watch is way too big for my wrist!

Ah, a much better size watch for me. This is a 1970 Zodiac "Orange Diver" with hack-set and quick set date. Orange is my color too!

Very nice watch! You don't see too many of them around.

I got this one this morning. The dial cleaned up really well (really) but I've got to do the hands over because the luminous stuff came out unevenly. Hamilton produced a total of 1247 of the Tonneau Engraved in 14k according to Rene's book. I found this with a Hamilton 14k lady's watch with diamond bezel and gold band, all for 400- so a good day I think :) -Cort

This Seiko is an export 6309-7049 which was made in 1978. It is identical to the Japanese 6309-7040 which were sold for the Japanese market. I's a 17 jewel auto cushion case.I just did an overhaul and is keeping perfect time. I'm now looking for the Japanese model.
