Kind of a weird one today, Tack and Gybe (or TNG). Picked this up at a rummage sale today. Dutch design and Swiss made.... ETA 2893-3 / TG893 automatic movement. Carbon Fiber dial, engraved rotating bezel, second time zone, sailing countdown timer, tactical planner, acoustic and optical signals, date indicator, screw-down crown, sapphire crystals front and back, water-resistant to 100 meters. Carbon Fiber looks a mile deep!!

Yowzers Gary, this one’s not weird st all, it’s wonderful ! Idea cheers

Have to say that I have literally never seen, or heard of this ultra cool watch, and brand sir. bounce
I mean we for the most part know about a ton of classic brands, as well as the new up, and
coming brands in recent years. ..Plus we can’t forget about all of the great vintage defunct
watch companies. However, to find out about, or see something new really helps make this
hobby that much cooler. ..We are always learning, and in your case, always finding something
new. Smile Cool And may I say, I do not know what is the best part about his watch ! cyclops It could be
the eye-catching looks, or even all of the neat accents, as well as colors. Or it could be all of
those amazing capabilities you listed off, wow ! Surprised And how about the movement that is under
it all?! ..This TNG GMT does it all, not to mention says Jules Verne on the dial ! Cool

Just fantastic G ! ..Wishing you a TERRIFIC TNG congratulations here !!!

P.S. Gary, did you know about this watch? ..Or know about the company before you got it sir?

I have never heard of this watch company before, but they are still making Regatta Timers and sailing watches. They are expensive too!!

https://tngwatches.com/product-category/sailing-timers/

I have to vent.  WRUW Saturday 9/3/22 916203 I hit the motherload today, there was an Estate Sale that listed clocks and watches, so we got there just before they opened....I looked at the watches. No name brands like Omega, Ulysse Nardin, Seiko, Citizen, Orient, Gallet, Certina, Timex, holy crap dude the list goes on and on. Like maybe 150 watches. I offered $500 for all and he took it. He told me he already sold all the Invicters (lol).....and he will be selling all the good stuff on eBay. If I got the crap, I can't wait to see what he posts on eBay!! I will be posting a lot of new stuff here over the next few days, months or what ever. There is so much good stuff I am in shock. There is a bunch of junk as well...I just need a few days or weeks to sort this mess out. 80% of these are unworn with tags etc. still attached. cheers

Not bragging just need to talk to someone, not many of my friends are watch guys.

cheers Smile WRUW Saturday 9/3/22 803574 WRUW Saturday 9/3/22 803574 Well we are friends Gary, and I am ecstatic for you !  bounce  cyclops In fact I don't think that I have
ever seen someone hit a motherload like this, or heard about it. ..I mean yes, I've heard people say they 
picked up a few watches at a garage, yeard, or estate sale, but not tons, and tons of watches like this sir !  Surprised
It seriously sounds like you picked up an entire collection of watches there today from everything you are
saying. And maybe possibly this was multiple collections, because 150 watches is a lot !!!  Idea  WRUW Saturday 9/3/22 812159
I seriously wish I could have seen your face when you were seeing what you had discovered there Gary.
Because it would have been priceless ! ..You probably wanted to get out of there as quickly as possible
I bet too because you didn't want anyone to realize that they made a mistake, and should have taken
$5000 instead of $500.  lol! I can picture you doing a burnout down the road after finding this treasure
trove of horological awesomeness !  Cool

A GINORMOUS congrats on all of this once again to you sir !!!

Oh, and thank you very very much for all of the insight on TNG too ! ..Holy cow, incredible stuff, incredible
watches, as well as an incredible day !!! ...Wow, just wow, enjoy !
