    3 impulse buys on the way

    Hi everyone,
    Just ended up buying 3 watches on impulse and they are on the way now... Stressful times call for random vintage purchases

    First one is a Certina with a Kf300 movement. Cant seem to find much information about it online though.

    2nd one is a Consul. Nicely aged dial and lume with blue hands. I think the company is rather obscure but i think they are still popular in China from what i heard kind of like Enicar and Cyma i guess.

    Last one is an edox in a very good condition. The movement is rather puzzling because it does not fit the case shape at all. Cost cutting measures??

    Regards

    If you can't find a datasheet for the kf300, I think I have it - but I am away from home atm. If you still need it mid-sept, pm me.

    Sent you a pm :) would you happen to know the rough production years for the kf 300? Im venturing a guess at late 40s

    Its my favourite one of the lot as well! Has a rather cool military look to it. But i might just have to let it go because i just found my vintage grail locally and i have got to fund for that

    Yea. I was thinking of putting an Aviator bund on the watch. Would look killer. Probably would rethink it over

    Nice Certina. The other two both have generic Fontainemelon movements. The first has something from the Cal. FHF 27 series:

    ...and the second from the Cal. FHF 69 series, here in the 3/4 plate version:
