    Help: Looking for an Art Deco Watch

    I collect watches with an Art Deco aesthetic or even those that have a retro futuristic look. I seem to be hitting a problem finding interesting watches that are also in my price range. I currenlty have a budget of 1,000 - 1,200 dollar. I would be interested in less expensive watches as well if they have that look and are reliable. I was hoping people could give me some recomendations. For reference here are a few watches I own. Thanks for the help:

    Out of your price range but check out the JLC Reverso range and Cartier.

    Yeah the JLC Reversos are my dream watches. Even the inexpensive ones are well out of what I am willing to pay at this time. The reverso gyro tourbillon is one of the most amazing watches I have ever seen but at 150k it should be.

    The Gyro tourb. is a piece of art, but not much Art Deco there.
    The classic Reversos, the ones with no complications, are the "true" Art Deco designs.

    Get an actual art deco watch?

    Very low priced on the 'Bay, you could get one completely restored for that budget.

    I don't currently have a photo, but do a forum search for "Robert Lighton san remo". Hard to get one, but one of my favorites!

    Not normally a fan of circular face deco watches but that one really is pretty and I love the texture of the case.

    You might be interested in this very inexpensive Alpha :





    And I recently purchased this vintage ZVEZDA (russian LIP T.18) which is not especially futuristic, but nonetheless Art-Déco :
