Vintage 1967 Caravelle Dress 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.
Think about this: Lyndon B. Johnson was the President of the United States when this watch first came out!
This watch looks pretty great even at 50 years of age. I hope I look this good in 7 years from now!
He has a dressier design with a compact & seldom-seen perfectly round case which measures 1.25" across including the crown.
The crystal is in beautiful shape, showing off that classically handsome face.
I added a rich brown textured leather band for an elegant effect.
You have asked for more pics of the watches on the arm, you can check me out trying to wear the watch and take the picture at the same time!
This watch has been serviced and keeps great time and date.
This watch requires daily winding.
