Vintage Timex Military 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.
You have have noticed that this season, I am really into military inspired accessories to complement the clothes I have designed.
I spotted this watch and just had to include him on the site - he is the perfect example of having a classic, polished look but with a military spirit to him.
This is a great old Timex with date keeper.
The face is a very subtle but very interesting pattern that has a slightly camouflage effect.
The band is a totally old school, military green ribbed canvas.
The case has a good weight to it, measuring 1.5" wide and about 1/4" thick.
I have serviced this watch to keep great time. Requires daily winding.
