    Today's pleasant surprise

    Stopped in a thrift store on way from long home commute. Find this K455 hanging on a junk rack for $3. No dents or brassing. So far only 2 seconds fast after 3 hours running. Dial looks unblemished under the scratched Crystal. Once I polish the gold and the crystal, should be quite nice. Additional bonus...vintage alligator Accutron band in serviceable condition and a signed Bulova gold filled buckle. And you ask why we collect vintage watches. It's fun

    LOL to a very nice watch with the bonus of collectible accessories from an entirely different brand.
