    I think I was bitten by a vintage bug

    Until now I was strictly into modern watches... 42mm + sizes. I checked out this forum to do some research on the watch I was thinking of buying and discovered a whole new world of vintage watches which are smaller in size but still quite wearable. I've been in it only a month and already acquired a few pieces. What do you guys think of them for a beginner ? They all run and look great. I would appreciate any additional information about any of the following pieces. I do know that Borel "society" does not show up very often...
    I really enjoy the vintage stuff now, boy how the tastes change over time , amazing....

    FIRST : NIVADA Grenchen "Croton" 1960's Auto, ETA2789, it wears very nice .

    Nice pieces. Love the Elgins. They are all nice, but I have a thing for Elgin and Hamilton.
