    Vintage Watches have a hold on me..

    I'm doomed
    I've gone through a lot of watches over the years (my signature can attest to that) But I think I'm firmly in love with vintage offerings. I've dabbled before with a Pierce chronograph and a UG Polerouter (which I still miss..)
    Vintage watches have more character and personality in my opinion. The history and education is also part of the fun. I've also enjoyed lurking this sub forum for quite some time.
    So, I'm sharing my current lineup. Hope you enjoy!

    haha! Not that much honestly. Although the Speedy was almost a keeper. It was the broadarrow reissue with acrylic crystal. And I loooooove acrylic crystals!

    Yeah, domed acrylic crystals have their charm. But the scratches appearing out of nowhere are really annoying... It's like with a headphones cable- no matter how you try to keep it ordered, you always find a Gordian knot when you want to use the headphones again.
