    Two new additions to my little collection

    Hi guys,
    First up, i am an existing member, but i had to make a new account, some reason i couldnt log on using this tablet i am having to use.

    I just ordered two vintage watches from ebay, prices were high, but with an offer and a 10% discount from ebay i am satisfied with what i payed.

    I am still a newby when it comes to vintage watches, so i appreciate any and all feed back, good or bad.

    First up is a Movado automatic. I was drawn to this for some reason, i really like the patina of the dial.

    Second is this Duby & Shaldenbrand Index mobile chrono.

    Cheers for looking.

    Very nice pickups! I'm digging the lugs on the chronograph.

    Thanks Joe,
    The only thing im not liking so much is the band, i think a black leather band might be on the cards.

    Nice!
    Never seen such a cool zigzag rotor. Index mobile is a cool complication too

    Congrats! The Movado is a high-quality watch, both case and movement.

    You have good taste! Chrono is very pleasing as is the Movado. I am not a huge fan of damaged (patina some call it) dials, this can effect the value as a dial can be trickiest thing to put right. However each to his own, it does add touch of history and age to the watch, it's not going to be confused with a new one!

    I just had an amusing image of the OP perusing eBay, finding a watch of interest, and muttering to himself "Yes, Sam would probably like this. I'm going to bid on it ForSam."

    Your not that far from the mark :)

    My three daughters names are Shae, Asha, and Mali (S.A.M) and one day my collection of watches and other things will go to them.

    Can anyone tell me how i may find the year this Duby watch was produced?

    As i understand, these were first made in the mid 40's, then later (90's) were re-produced using nos.

    According to the entry for the Index-Mobile in Ranfft, 150 were made in 1996, but they had a calendar complication, so...
