2 More Vintage Watches

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, complete with bell.  They were Seiko’s top of the line watches in the early 70’s  (except for King and Grand Seiko.)

This one took a lot of work to look half way decent.  The dial was detached from the main plate of the watch, and the crystal was almost opaque.

I’ll write up full reviews when I get a chance, but I think they were both excellent finds.
