    Dial scale day indicator watches.

    Interesting to me is a recent posting for pointer watches. My first decent watch was a day indicator with pointer hand. Less than $20. at Macy store NYC 1950. Second was a nice chronograph from Macy in 1952 $25. sold it for $25. in favor of the date indicator. It was lost in 1962 after leaving on car roof. Presently have a 1998 Marcel, and recently bought and sold a fine old style recent Oris like my 1950. The Marcel is a fine compact size actually useful in water with same, but nicely finished Valjoux movement as in Omega Day-Date, but with moonphase and sharkskin strap. I think superior at 1/2 the cost of Omega. At consecutive NAWCC marts I bought and sold back to the seller the Oris because he and I did not know its value and he wanted it back at $200.

    Nice examples. I appreciate seeing them.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

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