    Brought home a vintage Helbros today

    This guy somehow ended up on my wrist for the ride home from my local watch shop. I just need to get a black leather strap to put it on, and it will be a real impressive looker!Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1356143895.508180.jpg

    It came on this kinda weird but a little cool two-tone Speidel stretch band.

    This one is tick, tick, ticking away. Looks like a good first foray into vintage wristwatches. I really like the split day/date windows and the fact that the dial is marked "West Germany" at the bottom. I haven't seen much of that. I look forward to much future enabling from everyone around here!

    I used to have one of those Speidels on my Lucien Piccard.

    Yeah, the bracelet has grown on me tremendously today. I think it will stay on this watch instead of being replaced with a leather strap.
