I would like to get my boyfriend a vintage jump hour wristwatch for a Christmas present (I know, a bit late, but I won't be seeing him until after New Years). I personally don't know much about watches, so I'm hoping someone here can help. He prefers the 70s aesthetic and loves vintage mechanical things. Ideally, I'd like to stay under $200, but I don't even know if that's reasonable.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a particular watch or a place to shop? (For physical stores, anything in the Los Angeles or Orange County area works.) I know eBay has vintage watches, but I'm worried about the authenticity of those.
Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks so much,
