    This is a very nice vintage diver with a red date function. The coin edged bezel is fully functional, however it is missing the number insert. This can easily replaced or leave it as is, as I have and it looks great as a regular wear. The dial is actually a very dark blue, that looks near...

    Hi there. I saw a video on Youtube where the guy was winding a manual mechanical and I can see the main spring actually wind up. I forgot if this was a vintage watch or not. I also forgot if it was a display case back so that I could see it winding, or if the case back was removed. So my...

    This beautiful piece is a 1970 Seiko Lord Marvel 5740-8000 with a manual wind movement that ticks at 36000bph. This is Seiko's answer to the high beat hype of the '60s and '70s. Bought this from another WUS user last year and it has sat well-protected in my watch display case since then. The...

    I recently inherited a mid-1960s 17 jewel manual wind from my mother-in-law. I'm excited to add it to my small collection and hope to use it as my dress watch. I took it to a local jeweler and had it serviced for $106. The turnaround time was a day, which seemed fast to me, and it came back much...

    Finally picked up my first Nomos, the Nomos Tangente Topper Limited edition. I have always been a Nomos "fan" but never really got to buying one. I've admired the Club and Tangente but when Topper announced the LE for the Tangente I figured why not. I didn't even see the prototypes, the mere...
