We all have a reason to be in this rabbit hole right?
There is so much to appreciate in older craftsmanship. While my preferences change towards pure and functional specs in watches,I started adoring the bits and pieces which are exposed only to its beholder. Just for your own appreciation.
What am I talking about?
I would like to share a beautiful combo or tripo,vintage watches and books,they will speak for themselves:
1. Standard '50s looking timepiece,gold plated,three hands.Hidden beauty: Dead beat seconds
2. Glycine Airman from the year 1966.Casing a unique hacking mechanism,which pops onto the dial from a hole at 24 o'clock position when the crown is pulled to set time.
3. An old book with gold gilding on pages.Once the pages are fanned the hidden fore edge paintings are being exposed ( one of the books has double fore-edge painting )
Beautiful isn't it?
Let's see your hidden gems...
