  2. Snapshot of the Seventies

    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...
  3. Project watches arrived--looking forward to learning

    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...

    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...

    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)...

    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...
