Happy Friday! Brasilia chrono for me. Everything curves on this so it is always a challenge to photograph.

Best shot of Sonny's watch yet, I'm at early Season 4...

By the way, Switek (Michael Talbott) switched in "Missing Hours" back and forth between the Chronograph on the wave style bracelet and a Cartier Santos.

Hey guys, just purchased a vintage 1911 two-tone chronograph.

Except a new Miami Vice themed article in my blog.

PS: My BTR article already has over 20.000 views. It's not much but it's not bad, either.


@Rdenney can I borrow some of your knowledge to that blog (with credits accordingly given, of course)?

In the catalogs, it’s just “Chronograph”, but I’ll dig around in those for more clarity.

I bought some 18mm straps so expect to see this vintage 1960’s Ebel more often.

More Ebel product placement, but they don't show the watch, only the tan line... ;-) From "The Rising Sun of Death".

"He was wearing an Ebel watch worth USD 15,000"
This Miami Vice episode's (US) air date was 4 December 1987.

What Ebel cost 15,000 US Dollar in '87? The Quantieme perpetual calendar (if it was around in '87) or a diamond encrusted Beluga, perhaps?

Are they sure the watch did just subside into his dense arm hair?

Arm hair is what it is.

The tan line looks Beluga Lichine to me. That certainly could have been priced there in solid gold.

The gold and steel chronograph retailed for $6250 in ‘94. I don’t think I have an ‘87 price list. Too swamped this week to dig for it.

Shark skin bands rarely seen today.
On the tennis players, I've read they were wearing hollow Ebel (without movement) watches at the matches back then.
