I won't have this watch in my hand until Feb 17th because I'm on the road away from home but needed to share. This will probably be the only vintage I buy. I'm going to have her spruced up so I can strap er to my wrist daily. I really didn't want a vintage, had my sights on an auto diver, but I kept going back looking at this one. Sounds cheesy but it touched my soul somehow and I need to wear this watch. I bought it for my own 35th birthday next month and I am ver excited! I am going to get it re-lumed, polished and serviced, and a new strap. Croc, I think. Anyhow, not concerned about value or anything, it's worth what I paid and will pay. Here are a few pics from the seler, used on his permission.
