    Hello!

    Greetings people!
    My first post on this forum.
    I´ve been seen some interesting vintage watches recently, and i think they represent a good value and a TRUE piece of horological history.
    I was wondering if these pieces can be purchased online. I really like those vintage cushion shaped divers.
    Any help would be appreciated

    Cheers!

    I'm not familiar with them, unfortunately. Can you post a photo of what you are looking for? Brand? Approximate year of manufacture?

    Re: Hello!

    Gee, thanks for the swif reply!.
    I read a few moments ago a thread on the DWF where the OP was asking for sugestions on a dess driver. One of his choices was a Bulova Snorkel, since i wasn´t sure what he was talking about, i googled it and a web page called "watch cat" or something came up. I browsed through the catalog and found many, many interesting vintage or NOS watches, many where divers.
    I also noticed that most items where marked as "SOLD", so i was wondering if there were more places (online) that carried NOS or vintage pieces.

    Cheers!
    TIA

    There are many! But for sheer numbers, nothing beats eBay.

    Buying from an established on-line vendor will give you exactly what is promised. Usually it is serviced and ready for the wrist. But it is also somewhere from 50 to 200 percent more expensive than eBay, in general.

    If you buy on the bay, find a good local watchmaker. A lot of the watches will need servicing.

    Some googling will find a number of online vendors. Amazon has a few. They are out there... just do some looking.

    "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!
