    Got two vintage watches from my father yesterday.

    The Poljot he said he got around 1980 and the Sekonda in 78 or 79. Both of these come from Italy where we are from and are in great condition. The Sekonda I thought was a GMT but it turned out to be a alarm feature which still works. Just got to get them services now because dad said that they haven't been out of their boxes in over 30 years.

    That's awesome. That Poljot is particularly nice. Can I assume from your username that you're 29? Nice gifts from your dad.

    Having a watch with family history is a very fine thing.
    Over a half century of "just the right amount of odd."

    Those are two great finds! The fact that they are from your father will be something adds sentimental value to these making them far more valuable to you someday...

    Very nice!
    Make sure to share with the Russian forum. :) Both examples are in really great condition. I love the Sekonda alarm!

    Very cool. Though I hate that a watch obtained after I was born is now vintage.
