    Who on WUS has the oldest watch on his wrist everyday ?

    Please let us see your vintage watch

    As mentioned in the title, the watch must be in perfect working condition and be worn daily, I guess we will see some great Patek or Rolex

    Thank you.

    This is the oldest watch I have and wear quite regularly ... tried to date it, from '67 I believe -



    That reminds me ... I need me some more nice vintages.

    Is it an auto or manual wound ?

    Thank you! It's a manual wind, still keeps pretty decent time. I'm sure there will be plenty of other older beauties than mine on this thread.

    My oldest (wrist watch):



    1945 Longines 12L movement. Case is newer, but Movement, Dial, and hands are all original, and she keeps stellar time. I don't wear it as often as I used to, but still strap her on occasionally. I don't wear any one watch every day, I have too many.

    p.s. check out the vintage forum for more eye candy from the vintage lords over there.

    I got out of watches for a long time, but I'm coming back!

    Best I can do is 1952. Definitely in my daily wear rotation, though, and one of my very favourite pieces:

    This one is a 1963 Memovox. It gets worn quite a bit, especially in the warmer spring - summer months and all dress occasions. I prefer not to wear it when the weather is bad (snow, rain etc..).

    Used to own this 1907 Elgin 7 jewel wire lug conversion:






    but I sold it last year. I kind of regret it because it's tough to find one with a dial that good anymore.
