Vintage Aureole Blue Diver's 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.
Lay your eyes on this vintage diver's watch by Aureole. Good luck taking your eyes off of it!
I found this looker at an event in Oregon, but he needed a little bit of help. He has since been fully serviced & cleaned and given a vintage striped band that works just perfectly. This boy is ready for a new lease on life.
The dial is a dashing shade of royal blue with white & grey accents.
The crystal has one little mark just by the '5' marker, but other than that - he is in great shape. Even the rotating bezel is exceptionally clean.
This is a pretty hefty watch and measures over 1.75" across the face and nearly .25" thick.
The back of the case is marked Water Resistant to 200m (although I wouldn't go and put that to the test anymore!).
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 operates on battery power and does not require winding.
