My son will soon turn 21 and the idea of a a vintage watch for one of his gifts appeals.
Looking for an automatic with a clean simple lines, markers preferred to numerals and larger face is better (I appreciate that most vintage faces tend to be 35mm or under). He regulary wears my old teenage years Omega Seamaster mid size manual circa 1970 - loves the style but finds even on his small wrist it is a little small. Stainless preferred to gold but certainly not aa must.
I have been pondering various Omegas from the 1960's and ealy 70's but I need to broaden my outlook to other brands. Suggestions as to comparable watches in the range $1,000.00 to $1,500.00 would be greatly appreciated.
The beauty of giving him a watch is that I can wear his just as he wears all mine (which he will eventually own anyway).
