Vintage 1970's Timex Day/Date Sports Watch
I have always had a thing for old watches. There is something about the character of an old watch that just defines "Old School Cool" for me. I've just thought it was so much cooler to discover a beautiful old watch than to just walk into a store and buy a new one. There is a strength in knowing how old they are and seeing them faithfully keep perfect time. There is a magic in thinking of the life that this watch had before it came into your hands. And there is a beauty in knowing that some things just never go out of style.
When I was growing up, my dad never splurged on anything. His focus was on taking care of us kids. But the one thing that he loved was a great watch. I think I inherited that from him. As Blade + Blue is really a 'Thank - You' letter to my father for all that he taught us about being men, I couldn't be more excited and proud than to share this collection of beautiful found watches with you.
This handsome fellow came to me from a Timex collector near Mendocino County in Northern California.
Check out those raised red numeral markers & second hand against that dapper champagne colored dial. Totally old school & cool.
This steel case measures roughly 1.5" wide and features a classic day/date keeper.
I placed a new textured brown leather band on him to complement that exquisite face.
This watch has been serviced and keeps great time and date.
Daily winding required.
