    Witch maker for a wrist watch??

    Hello all.

    Well, I need a wrist watch for work, but I do not like a new one. Vintage/antique is what I seek.
    I am using a IWC from .68 now and it is great. The only thing is, it has a leather strap and that is not the best in summer heat and so. Gets very smelly and sticky.

    What I do like is a watch with a bracelet, pre 1960.
    But, what do I have for choice? Rolex and Omega?

    At that time, not so many did make watches with bracelet, well that is what I do find when seeking around.
    Any tip on what to go for?

    A maker I have not come over maybe?

    Best

    why dont you just buy a metal bracelet for your IWC. Also price guide would be great to know, omega could always go for a speedy or lower in price seamaster, dont know much about rolex but expect to pay a lot more

    This was going to be my suggestion.
    I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

    Thanks for the help

    Oh, prices yes. Well, hard to say....But around 2500 euro.
    Why I do not putt a bracelet on my IWC....Like to keep things original. So, then I need one more watch. Also, my wife says, it is just an excuse to buy another watch
