Vintage Swiss Army Diver's Watch with Blue Dial
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.
Holy Toledo, this one is really special to me. You may have seen a small capsule called 'Black & Blue' by Blade+Blue which preceded the new Spring collection. Well, this is the item that sparked that entire idea.
This is a vintage Swiss Army Diver's watch with an incredible blue glass face. If you peer behind that blue glass, you can actually see the insides of the watch hard at work.
There is also a very unique date keeper which rotates each day until the correct date appears in the contrasting white window.
Even small details like the yellow second hand is totally cool!
This is a pretty hefty piece which measures about 1.5" across.
In the process of saving this watch, I gave him a fresh new black leather band.
This watch is battery operated.
