Vintage watch of the day (30 years+)

Post by Amor Vincit Omnia »

I thought I would start this one as the vintage watches often seem to get a little lost among the modern ones in the non-CW thread! As the term "Vintage" tends to apply to watches over 30 years, can we have a 1984 cut-off, please?

Entry number one: 1960s Enicar Ocean Pearl on blue lizard.

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

Not with this one! I have a 1883 English fusee, but I think there are older ones that that around!

I guess my Omega Geneve l manual Calibre 1030 on the original steel mesh qualifies as a vintage. Wore it today and left me feeling very happy. :D
