Vintage Webster 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.
I've been crushing hard on anything olive green lately, so I jumped at this watch when I first spotted it.
This watch was made by the Webster company and likely dates back to the 1970's.
His handsome black face features bold cream colored numerals with pale green & orange accents on the hands and calendar. The crystal is very clean and shows off the sweet combo very well.
The stainless steel case measures roughly 1.75" wide from one side to the edge of the crown. It is a pretty thick case too, about .25" thick.
The backside of the case is marked with a 200m water resistant notation. (Of course, I cannot guarantee this functionality).
I placed a great olive green canvas military band on this watch for a pretty great effect.
This watch has been serviced and keeps great time and date.
This watch requires daily winding.
