Vintage Crosby Stadium Case 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.
Argh! I am so torn because I want to keep this one for myself!
This is a great old watch by the Crosby company.
I call this kind of case a 'stadium' case because it reminds me of a football stadium. The sides are thick and raised forming a dome shape that shows off the handsome face perfectly.
And speaking of faces, there is so much detail on this face - I could examine it for hours. I know I sound like a watch geek, but I can't help it!
The crystal is in very good condition with just a little bit of wear with age.
The 'stadium' shape creates a sort of rectangular shape measuring about 1.5" across and almost 2" top to bottom.
The time markers are also denoted with the military hours.
The backside is marked "Stainless Steel / France / Base Metal Bezel"
Oh and check out the green perforated leather band I found! Too cool!
This watch has been serviced and keeps great time and date.
This watch requires daily winding.
