Today was the third anniversary of the passing of our friend, Chuck Maddox, a legend in the community of vintage chronograph collectors. Chuck probably wrote and talked more about vintage chronographs than anyone else in our community. He not only inspired OnTheDash but introduced me to the “techie” who made it happen.
There has been considerable discussion about which watch was actually Chuck’s favorite . . . he seemed to love them all. But when I woke up this morning, I had no doubt about which watch to wear in Chuck’s memory. Whatever we say about the “Grail”, and however much he loved the Lemania 5100s, and for all he wrote about the Speedies and Moon watches, on a given day, this was the watch that Chuck was most likely to be wearing.
