    My Vintage Watch Collection - with Pics



    Pics below
    - scroll simply if no pre -read


    All started with a Suunto which wasn't fine with official clothing. As an average person in watch knowledge found in public, my interest flow into fashion brand analog watches. That part ends up with a Maurice Lacroix pre-masterpiece with Valjoux 7750. This magic word ' Valjoux 7750 ' pulled the trigger.
    Started to look into non ETA movements, read and search their pre- ETA history draw me into the vintage ocean. Made some failures- still making actually, with a Breitling Venus 170, which was re-dialed and bridge signed at home I guess- South American wonders. This lesson made my enthusiasm grow, so that I can estimate the value and authenticity before I invest in it.

    Lately, still investigating actually, my last shot looks also questionable, pics below. Having this timepieces, and taking care of them became a real hobby but the more I learn the more I realize that there is a huge way to go.

    Pics tell more than words, here are my vintage timepieces,more into movements, 24 hour dials, and depending on my mood and the series I am into learning my purchases were varying.I wonder where I will end up, but don't think about that as far as it gives the satisfaction.

    My wishlist to complete this year is:

    - Zodiac Seawolf
    - Vulcain Cricket
    - Bulova Accutron Astronaut
    - And anything meanwhile which gets my attention and appreciation.


    Open for feedback and opinion share, would love to hear your recommendations to grow the collection.The time estimates are due to my knowledge, would be happy if you have certain information to add. Couldn't organize the pics under related text, maybe because too many attachments manager messed up, sorry for that.With my goods and fails here they are:

    That is a very nice collection. Your tastes are quite diverse. I particularly like the silver, fixed lug...classically understated. Enjoy and please share when you get new ones.

    You have some great watches.

    I see you have several nice Glycines - a brand that isn't often seen in here - including one with a deployment clasp. It wouldn't be a Streamline by any chance would it?

    thank you,

    yes Paleotime, you right is diverse, I think each learning era for me has a piece in the collection.

    Marrik, maybe I bought your watch:) I love Glycine, I think because its a Meylan bloodline.I saw some Glycine bumper automatic and missed it, was a inhouse movement very nice and interesting. I am aiming to complete Glycine line except those 70's examples with 6 digits engraved ( f.e.g. 323.211 ) on case back, they are too diverse. Pity they don't have records left, when they produced what.

    Meanwhile, does anybody know anything about the Hungarian watchmaker Brauswetter Janos and if there is a link with Omega?

    No - not me.

    I still have that strap. I think they were probably quite expensive after-market items in their day - probably sold as replacements when the originals wore out.

    What a beautiful collection! They are too many and too diverse for me to pick a favorite. Perhaps the A.Schild 1475? I could see myself wearing that everyday.

    Thank you for sharing your pictures with us.

    Best wishes for finding your Zodiac Seawolf, Vulcain Cricket and Bulova Accutron Astronaut.


    Cheers,
