Normally I hang out in the japanese forums here, but I do have a taste for the old. Few things give me as much satisfaction as making something old and forgotten into something useful and appreciated.
As a result, I have a bug for vintage watches, and for the first time, I've indulged it and got myself a 1968 king seiko. A year before my birthyear.
Not only is it my first vintage piece, it's my first Seiko ever.
It blew me away. I'm in awe of this piece. It's so well-cared for it must've been someone's treasure. I shall treat it with the respect it deserves.
I thought I'd share it with the vintage group.
I'll hang around, if y'all don't mind. In my future I see a hamilton pocket, maybe with a 992 and montgomery dial . And wrist hamiltons. And gruens. And Elgins. And old, old Bulovas. An evil illness, the love of old watches Still, a wonderful one. It's good to finally be able to indulge in it.
