    I'm going to conquer the world with Vantage watches!

    Well, not really, but I went to my watch repairman today, and he just purchased 10,000 dozen (literally), NOS Vantage and related watch dials! I was almost like a kid in a candy store, just wish they were all Hamilton's, not Vantage's, but they are from the same family. Here is just a sampling that I purchased today, he will be pulling out more cases of different dials in the coming week.

    Now all he has to do is catalog them

    My watchmaker has similar caches... sometimes he knows he has something. Sometimes he doesn't.

    International Dial has, literally, barrels of dials. Also uncatalogued.

    "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!
