    Kind of fun Recta marked FB-1 Waterproof

    Just thought I'd share this watch. It has a semi military look. All stainless steel. Cool lugs and nice looking 17 jewel movement. It's not large at around 32.67mm. Seems to be a quality product. Anyone have similar?

    Sure, I like the sort of fat look to the case also. Do you figure from the 1950s?

    Super cool watch! Similar fat case but with those awesome chunky flared lugs.

    I love Recta watches. This is one of mine and its also my favorite "patina" watch I own.

    The only Recta made item in my collections is not in my watch collection. It's a self timer for cameras called "Photo clip". First patent and model is from the 30s if I recall correctly.





    Besides watches I collect and use vintage cameras (and related items). :D

    One day, when I kick start my blog/website and similar I plan to write an article about the ties between the horological industry and photo camera industry.
