I guess this qualifies as vintage. Its since been overhauled, crystal polished, and the case lugs repaired.

"Guaranteed To Wear 10 Years"

An early 1930's rolled gold pocket watch in as found condition. I'll probably eventually get the case re-plated and the hands & dial cleaned up.

As much as I have enjoyed my new 1675 over past couple of months I thought I would give it a rest and strap on the '68 Speedmaster. It's got a face only a father could love.
