Vintage watch of the day (30 years+)

Post by Amor Vincit Omnia » Mon May 12, 2014 7:25 am

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.

I've had a go with most CW models in the true spirit of online buying - get it, try it, keep it or flip it! White C60 Mk2, Black C60 Mk2 GMT and the big blue beast!

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
