Orient Day Date CEV0J002B

Monday, June 1st, 2015

Orient Day Date CEV0J002B I had my birthday a couple months ago and received a watch. It was not quite me, so I went ahead and bought this one instead. For years I really admired Orient’s homage watches. Sadly, since Seiko now controls Orient, they politely told them to stop producing the Rolex homage watches. […]

Watch Review, Valgine Pocket Watch

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

Valgine Pocket Watch Overview: I am not usually tempted by pocket watches, but recently I picked up a modern watch for my younger brother, so my interest was piqued.  So, on my last visit to my local antique store, I looked through the vintage bin.  When I opened up this little beauty of a watch, […]

2 More Vintage Watches

Sunday, November 14th, 2010

I’ve done it again and picked up two more vintage watches. First off, we have a Timex, from 1979: It’s a nice, funky automatic.  It has a nice, over-sized Day and Date, with quickset. Secondly, I picked up a Seiko Bell-Matic from 1970! This is my first Bell-Matic, which is basically a wrist alarm clock, […]

Watch Review: Omega Speedmaster 3211.30.00

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

Omega Speedmaster Ref. 3211.30.00 Watch Review. Around a week ago, I received an amazing e-mail. I had won an Omega Speedmaster, in silver in a sweepstakes from Lussori Jewellery. At first, I had my doubts, but I called, and it is all legit. Exactly one week later, I received it via UPS. Presentation: The watch […]

Watch Review: Vintage Timex Square Faced

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

Vintage Timex Square Faced Last, but not least, is a watch I picked up a few weeks ago, and I have finally gotten a chance to review.  This is a squarish faced Timex, of unknown vintage.  I am sure if I opened up the case, I would see a manufacture date, but if a watch […]

Waltham Vintage Hi-beat

Saturday, August 28th, 2010

Watch review Waltham Vintage, High Beat. I picked this one up on impulse, along with a quartz Seiko.  It is a surprisingly clean watch, with a 8 bps movement (28,800 BPH) that keeps great time.  I have not even polished the crystal.  Just removed some dirt and put it on a metal bracelet. The dial […]

Watch Review, Seiko SQ Quartz, 1990

Saturday, August 28th, 2010

This is one of my latest finds (which was free, since I am a ‘good’ customer) is a Seiko Quartz watch from 1990.  It was in pretty sorry shape when I got it: Pretty sad looking for a watch which probably cost about $100 new, just 20 years ago!  Well, here is where Brasso and […]

My second find (which was […]

Timex Mickey Mouse, Vintage 1971 A few weeks ago, I was thinking, what am I really missing in my collection?  Two watches sprung to mind, a small seconds watch and a Mickey Mouse watch.  As fate would have it, my most recent visit to my favorite antique store (my secret) yielded both!  What we have […]
