    @Uros TSI: You said it's from 1985 but I think it's from the late 70's as it's got a ETA 2789.

    @laikrodukas: I hope that's not how you address everyond (Hellow there shum you idiot!)...

    At least 35 years old so now it's a vintage watch for sure.

    I'm always amazed how new these old watches look. I remember in the late 70's my brother had some watches that were almost new and they were all in a horrible state all rusted and non working with dirt inside so how so many can survive looking this got is just fantastic.

    Yeah, I get that a lot at work, me being 6'3" and not of small build, a 30mm watch looks dainty on my wrist but I don't care one jot.

    Re: Falling deeper into the vintage rabbit hole...

    I broke the crystal for the silver Waltham.

    So far, the Swatch turned out to be a dummy model (seller did not disclose, and refuses to provide refund).

    I also just shattered the crystal from the silver Waltham. I don't know if I'll ever track down a replacement, so I'm thinking that watch is a goner.

    The gold Waltham and the Timex are the only survivors at this point.

    Hopefully I can get one out of the two working without breaking them, and chalk the rest up to expensive experience
