    Took some pics of my vintages today

    For your enjoyment. They're a little out of focus, but cut me some slack, I'm still trying to get the hang of the Manual Focus on my new camera.

    Waltham P.S.Bartlett PW.
    This one has a weird winding mechanism, and I can't seem to find a case that will accept the female winding stem, so I wind it through the sleeve with a key.



    WWII Hamilton 4992b 24 Hour Pilots PW



    1940's Longines 12L in a Bulova Case ( I can't find a longines case for this one either )


    1950's Movado Bumper Wind


    1970's (?) Caravelle Diver "waterproof 666ft"


    1940's Bulova Tank


    1940's Paul Breguette


    1970's (?) Benrus Military style

    I got out of watches for a long time, but I'm coming back!

    Do you get a chance to wear any of them?

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I do. I wear the Caravelle Diver frequently, the Longines second most, followed closely by the Movado Bumper, and the others I wear on rare occasions. None of them are in particularly great shape, so I don't have to worry about scratches and dings and the like. I got married in the Bulova Tank. I feel bad for not wearing them, but they're all so small, it just feels weird wearing them on a regular day. I'm not in to HUGE watches, but my daily wearers are a Chrono which is about 43mm, an Orient Mako, and a G shock Riseman. Switching to something that is only 25-30mm across is a bit of a culture shock . The caravelle is big enough to still feel normal, especially with the home made BUND pad.

    But if I'm getting a little dressed up, I'll slap on a on a vintage and go.

    I confess, I have switched the front and back covers on my 992B... that movement is just too beautiful to hide and it always makes the non-watch people who populate most of the earth smile when they see it.

    Nice, I love the 4992B. What is the serial number of the P.S Bartlett?

    See if you can find a Case on flea-bay. I had a spare, so both sides of mine are beautiful.

    Oh, and I'm wearing the Caravelle today, so I snapped a few more pics.
