    Interesting! You obviously go out of your way to collect unusual examples. While I know little about Rolex and JLC I have never seen watches like this. And the Longines has to be a rare one. Omega had some one pusher chronos but I didn't know Longines did.

    Please post more!!

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    The two Cellinis are from the 70 ies? One is white 18K gold, and the other one 18K yellow gold? Lovely Longines!!!
    The JLC, is it a Ladies watch, I have never seen a mens watch with a mystery diamond dial!
    You have a nice collection of some unusual (today) watches!!
    To buy the new at that time must have been a fortune!

    The LeCoultre is separete from JLC, but the same company. It's mans watch, bigger than the Cellinis, or at least same size, hand wound, circa 1948 (the tear I was born). The Longines is a chronograph from the 1972 Munich olimpic games. I put some others, hope you like them: as you see I like divers, and square.
    How old has to be a watch to consider it as a VINTAGE?, this is becouse the Seiko hasta abot 25 years, is ceramic, and a 1000 pieces only.

    vintage...

    ... in wine, anything that says what year it was made instead of a code telling you what shift

    ... in cars, anything that gives you a lower tax rate -- usually 25 years.

    ... in electronics, anything they decided was obsolete like the VCR you just bought.

    ... in computers, anything that has lights or weighs more than 100 lbs.

    ... in watches, well I was going to say anything older than the moderators, but I don't think that will work!

    Older than some moderators..like those who can't remember Jackie Gleason before "Smoky and the Bandit" maybe. (inside joke)
    We never define vintage watches here because then we might miss out on something really cool.

    ... As do we!

    Great collection of watches I have little familiarity with... Of the three Seamasters - I never knew that case was available with anything other than the multifunction (I have the Longines equivalent). I just wonder how much it cost to put in those gold seams into the stainless. Nice effect.

    I suspect the Rolex is the most common of the lot. (But I wouldn't be suprised if that variant is uncommon - I know little about Rolexes.) The Seamaster multifunction is not uncommon. The rest I have never seen

    Goodness me! - a Nivada Depthomatic! The one with the thin hollow tunnel around the outside of the crystal - when the water enters, it clears the crystal, showing a red marker behind it, enabling you to tell the depth. But then, you probably knew that already.....

    The only problem: damn hard to get a replacement crystal these days!!

    My parents have the Omega on the right of the picture in His 'n' Hers versions. My mother also has an Omega ladies with nearly the smallest serially produced automatic movement, a Cal. 681 (the smallest is the Cal. 670 series). I was allowed to wear it for some years when I was a child - shown how much trust she put in me.....!!
