You are right there aren't many nice lady diver watches, I have still got my Lady Yacht-Master but they are crazy prices now

I have also got this vintage Ladies' Omega 120 which I don't wear very often as it is so special

Both are smaller than they look on my wrist at around 30 mm

 

 

Lovely watch - what do you wear when swimming? I take it the Omega doesn't go anywhere near water?

I don't wear a watch when I swim because I usually wear vintage watches,

The Omega is kept well clear of water although it has been serviced so should be good for swimming but I don't want to risk it

I have this vintage Ellesse which I wear occasionally. They turn up on Ebay pretty regularly. I bought it for my wife some years ago but she's now a slave to her smart watch (some of Samsung which leaves me utterly cold) & a Tag Heuer for posh occasions.

It's a well built watch & keeps good enough time for me (ETA auto - hacks, hand winds & quickest date), has a unidirectional bezel which lines up fine, screw down crown, display back etc. It's 39mm including the crown so not a bad size, crystal is 26mm across & it's a slim 7mm thick.

Downside is non-existant lume (no clue how bright it would have been when new), the "organic design" integrated bracelet - which is actually very comfortable - is an acquired taste & the seals may well be part their best. I didn't pay much for mine but have seen them at £400ish on Ebay, which is far too much in my opinion.

Let us know what you end up with :thumbs_up:

Sorry, having just read the thread through properly I see that you've already bought the Yema. Looks a quality watch - would be interested to hear what your wife thinks of it when it arrives :thumbsup:

10 minute Claxton for something interesting
