I'm starting a new thread on vintage Pontiac watches.
I invite anyone who's got a Pontiac (the watch not the car) to share pictures of it, or to share information about this Swiss brand which is now defunct but was highly popular in the BENELUX in the 60 and 70s.
I'm kicking off with pictures of my own Pontiac Nageur, which I like for its pie-pan dial. The dial is actual mono-tone but the light plays tricks on the eye because of the pie-pan shape.
I believe this watch is an unusual model for Pontiac precisely because of its pie-pan dial. The red colour and shape of the seconds hand gives it a rather sporty look; just what you would expect from a watch named 'nageur': French for swimmer. And, yes, the watch is waterproof, too.
And, what do you think of the serial number: 1234? How unusual is that?
