    New thrift store finds!

    Hey Cats,
    Found me some new watches at the thrift store tonight, a couple sweet Citizens and a really neat Lord Vader character watch plus a stunning womans vintage Solar gold filled watch, all of them work too Here's a pic, the Solar isn't included because I have it apart to polish out the lense.



    I really love the Citizen case design, the bezel is diamond edged and is press fit onto the case, the side profile is quite striking, I'll get a picture of it once I figure out the exposures, I can't a decent focused shot of it. Debating on whether to have the crystal replaced as I'm not sure if it will enter the rotation. Finally a Citizen to add to the collection, oh wait that's 2 Citizen's

    Here are some pics of the Citizens, I finally got the side shot of the Seven to look good enough.



    Peace,
    Preston

    Vader watch for teh win! Okay, I wouldn't wear it now, but that would so have been my favourite watch when I was a kid...

    Good deal on the Citizens. I see you swapped the Seven's bracelet for a strap.

    Yeah Mike, had to do it. It wasn't original to the watch and it's pretty wasted. The pics make the watch look worse than it is. After the clean up and a little polishing it's got a decent gleam back to it. I can't get enough of the case design myself.
    Peace,
