Old Watch Sunday (made before 1990)


Recommended Posts

Wow!  I didn't go to bed yet, obvs, but I have this on (old pic from my SOTC)...  Timex Sprite - 1975 / 76

I could do a pair of these actually ...  although this one has a wonky minute hand that has been known to foul the second hand.  But when I lume it, that will get fixed too. 

The other is a bit nicer with box and papers from Scott (on the black strap currently, but I ordered a blue 70s rally strap for it tonight) , but I don't wear it much - the brown strap one is my beater!

But here they are together ...

My first vintage piece, needs some work with day/date wheel alignment, but I'm growing to like the quirkiness of it.

I have to say, I like the look of it. If you can get it running right then it'll definitely be a unique piece.
