    My other vacations finds..

    These are the other two watches I bought while away. They both proved to be less disappointing than the Heuer. One is a Swiss made Alben 17j that I would guess is from the sixties. This crystal is cracked and I can't find much info about the company on google so if anyone has knowledge please share.

    The second is a funky 1973 Bulova Sea King that is in pristine condition, it was given to a member of the M.C.C as the president's guest according to the caseback. I found the ad for the Bulova which is neat.

    also I apologize for the size of the pics, I do more viewing than posting.

    Haha I don't know, it's hard enough trying to wear one seventies design. The strap in the ad is different from the one that it came with, although it was a Bulova strap and the color matched the inner dial perfectly. But it was too annoying to wear on leather so I put it on the band that is in the pictures.

    That Bulova is really Disco...clunk-tastic. I like the other watch as well. Nice pick-ups.

    The Alben appears to be some variation of the FHF 96:
