Just spent the last 2 weeks on vacation watch hunting.I think I covered about a 50 mile radius from home,hitting every thrift store I could find,at least 50 some stores and realized just how rare the good finds really are.I normally hit a few stores daily after work and on weekends.It has been 1 year since I started this new obsession and had 3 good hits and lots of o k finds this year.This is all I found the last 2 weeks,It's not much but I had a lot of fun looking.

I like the case on that first Benrus and the Bulova is really nice. Is it missing the sweep second or just cant be seen in the photo?

Great finds!
The Bulova is the Oceanographer "D", and has a solid 10K gold bezel.
Good score!
