    There is something about 1970s watch design that makes it incredibly appealing to me. A lot of watches from that era used straight lines, dramatic angles, and an abundant use of flat surfaces. Gerald Genta‘s designs for Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, IWC and others, seemed to have spearheaded...

  4. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hi everyone. I've been absent from the forum for quite some time. I have been indulging other hobbies (mostly hifi and vinyl records!) for a while since watch hunting for reasonable prices just seemed to be getting harder and harder. In the last week I dipped back in, and I'm very very glad I...
  5. Seiko
    I ordered a lot of 5 watches from Ramon "thewatchcollector" on eBay last month. They showed up and I'm pretty pleased. 4 automatics and 1 mechanical. He described them as women's watches but two are certainly men's, if on the small side. All appear to date to the mid-1970s. Though they were...

    For sale is my Memosail Regatta 10-Minutes Chronograph. The watch is in pristine condition and was last serviced in 2014. 10-minutes chrono works perfectly and resets to zero flawlessly. Further info on the watch can be found in this wonderfully written article Memosail 1970's - Regatta...
  7. Vintage & Pocket watches
    So my latest ebay purchase arrived this morning- A 1970's Accurist Diver. I see their 60's "Marinograf" divers pop up from time to time but I've never seen one of these before. Obviously it needs some work, but it has some good potential. The dial and hands are clean and the full steel case...
  8. eBay Auctions
    Hi everybody, I put for sale two vintage Citizen Cosmotron. Both watches don't work, so they are sold for parts or repair. I have tested them and the tonneau shaped one (with the black ring) ticks only if you push the crown but the seconds hand won't move, the crown has some problems too, and...

  10. Seiko watch reviews
    Just received this Seiko SNKN37 "Recraft" with the 7S26 in an exhibition window, and couldn't be happier with it. Got a good deal from Amazon who were briefly in a price war with Macy's (!). This retro looker came with the full 3-year Seiko warrant, box, tags, etc. I'm a big guy, north of...

  12. Rolex & Tudor
    Hello, I recently acquired a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date (ref. 1500) with a sigma dial. This watch was originally sold in 1976 (according to the papers). The hourmarkers are shiny rectangles with a black frame around them. Technically speaking they should be made out of precious metal. (sigma)...
  13. Omega Fake Busters
    Hello, I am looking for a watch for my BF and found this ebay listing for something I think he'd really like. Below is a link to the listing. There are a couple things on there that make me nervous and I have no idea how to spot a fake in the first place, I was hoping someone here could help...
  14. Affordable watches
    This week I got a Seiko SARB from my wife as a father's day present. I love this watch and really connected with it right away. So much so that it brought back a lot of memories of why I love watches so much in the first place. This brought me back to memories of my first watch: a 1972 Timex...
  15. Straps & Bracelets
    I have my Grandfather's 1970s self-winding Hamilton watch that he received in 1973 as a retirement gift. It currently has a gold Speidel watchband that doesn't quite match the face. I have two questions. 1. Original band? How does one find out what the original band was like? 2. New band? Any...
