"We can forgive a man for making a useful thing as long as he does not admire it. The only excuse for making a useless thing is that one admires it intensely.
All art is quite useless."
"Vou-me embora pra Pasárgada
Lá sou amigo do rei
Lá tenho a mulher que eu quero
Na cama que escolherei."
For today, my 33mm Eska, the name derived phonetically from the initials of the maker, Sylvan Kocher, also signed on the inner and outer caseback.
The stainless steel case suggests that in its day this old fellow, whilst certainly not the richest, wasn't necessarily the poorest kid on the block either.
Well I would not say this is as Classic Vintage as yours, but at 37 years old it does qualify...
Is it valuable? I dunno. I have seen no others like it.
But check out the hands! I love the arrows.
