So, I've been looking forward to having a Certina for some time, and just today I got lucky.
Paid 50 bucks at a Sunday fleamarket... for this:
It's a Club 2000, whatever that means. Quite a good example of a 1970s piece- the movement is a Certina 25-66M, which according to the Ranfft archive was produced between 1975 and 1977.
Looks clean, keeps good time and winds really smoothly.
The watch has its original Certina bracelet, and- what is surprising for a hand-winder- the original signed crown. Dunno if you can see the latter in the pictures... Being in a very 1970s mood I've been listening to some Rolling Stones, Boston and AC/DC on my way back from the fleamarket. No nicer feeling, I'm telling you that! Sunny, hot weather, a nice vintage watch on the wrist, and good old rock on the car stereo.
So, I'd really like to hear some thoughts about it... I think I've made a good deal. What do you guys think?
OK, so a few more pictures, and I'm back to enjoying it!
