Same here. Guess I'll have to settle for my Rolex Datejust. Woe is me.
I've owned a few vintage watches, but not anything too costly. If I want a watch I can wear doing physical things, it'll be an unbreakable Citizen Ecodrive - and great not to have to set the time, replace a battery or have it serviced.
The term 'tool watch' is kind of an irritating marketing term for YouTubers, not sure a Rolex Explorer as a status symbol has qualified as one of those for some decades. Certainly not the rather delicate but pretty 1016.
Now they are really pretty watches in a classic mid-century idiom and to me they look better than similar period Omegas. It's curious how such a crude mechanism, which can't even be properly serviced can survive so well for so long. A cheap shit disposable watch that ended up having heirloom qualities and classic looks.
I’ve had this one since the age of 15....
I mean this one, nothing fancy.
Caravelle watches were the budget brand made by Bulova - some of those 60's ones had Japanese or Swiss movements. That one looks a little later. I quite like the mid 1960's Caravelle Sea Hunter with the Explorer style dial. Thanks to the internet cult of cool things they now go for big money, but they were a kind of $12 Timex-style watch. Five years ago you could still get them for a few bucks.
A Gotham date-o-matic watch that belonged to my Dad. I remember being captivated by the moonphase display as a kid. A modest stainless watch with a swiss movement. My main wearer is out for service so I've been enjoying some watches that I've rarely worn. Might look for a nicer strap for this one.
That's a cool watch!
One and done Omega Pre moon Speedmaster Pro
Got a nice new automatic. Again Zeppelin, nothing special, just working-horse Miyota 821A. But I just like the Zeppelin's. Nice design.
I love the hands and the cream dial on this one. And I got a ticket from Friedrichshafen to Köln, too. ;
A watch pic from earlier today while I was running errands.
Checking in with the 124060 Submariner.
My new one with the Miyota 821A has levelled out on daily 12 seconds forward.
I took out the ceramic insert and put in an aluminum version to give it a bit more of a '70s look.
