It seems there's a pattern to luck. February through May are steady months, then we have Christmas in July, and November seems to be another good month for vintage watches and related items.
These two came in the mail today:
A SS IWC buckle
and a '74 Grand Seiko (thanks Rich!) which is going directly to the watchmaker for a touch-up so it can be added to the rotation immediately.
Earlier this month, I was lucky to grab two nice Longines:
A '46 caliber 23M
and an early 60's Admiral caliber 34x.
Even picked up a few straps from Scott at Times of Plenty, plus another 12 watch case from Doug at Custom Case Design.
But the coup de grace is this long-time 'most wanted' JLC - a caliber 825 Memovox.
I'll be picking it up in a week, and then it's also going immediately to the watchmaker and getting a nice strap for occasional wear.
Not a bad month, you know? There's a modern watch due in December also - and it's a dive watch!!! If things go well, there will be a KILLER addition just after Christmas too.
