    My Nerdy Caravelle Obsession

    I started by looking for a group of vintage watches that had the same movement and could be easily replaced and it has now turned into this. But I very much enjoy having a lot of fun watches at a low price point and they get to spend they're time in an old display case when I'm not wearing them! Now what to add next

    Awesome way to collect! That display rocks man!

    There are certainly a lot of those available at good price, probably the 666 divers are some of the most coveted from the brand.

    Wear them in good health

    Excellent. I'm a fan of Caravelle watches also. I'll have to revisit and insert some pics, but I have the 666 in the lower right, the blue dial jump hour, and a really cool 333 (half devil diver) early quartz that unfortunately needs repair.

    I would love to see some other Caravelle collections and hear from others that enjoy this cheap but interesting brand and maybe get some ideas on what should be next.

    Also what are peoples experience's with the automatic 666 models in terms of reliability. I have focused on the 11DP manual wind models as I am able to work on them myself with confidence (and this allows me to have many watches while saving a lot in service). But there are a couple automatic 666 models that really have my attention. Has anyone worked on these themselves and do you have any references to servicing them?

    I hope everyone had a great weekend and I look forward to the conversations.

    Thank you, it's really fun walking into the office and having the display case.

    That is such a cool Caravelle! There has only been one other I've seen and it is on eBay at the moment but I am not feeling the price. Really do like the watch

    That is a stunning Caravelle, I haven't seen many blue examples. I just restored this one and am giving it to my sister. Trying to get a Caravelle on the wrist of ever family member.

    Funny actually, I really got my wife into watches and about a third of caravelles in that display case are hers.
