I was hoping you can give me some guidance. My love for watches started as a child when I would see my father and grandfather's watches. Simple, three hand watches with gold background. Not sure on the brands what they had, but it is similar to the Longines/Omegas from the 60s.
I see some of these models on the for sale forum, but I have hard time understanding which watch would be a good one to purchase and keep for extended period of time. Would a watch from the 60s, be something that can withstand time?
What are some of the movements, and brands from that time that made quality watches? Omega, longines? Anybody else?
Would I be able to find some "jumbo" sizes around 38 mm case or will they all be around 34mm to 36 mm?
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
