Vintage Swank Metallic Blue 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.
So, I will admit that I have never come across a Swank brand watch before. I own several of their tie clips, but I didn't even know they made watches!
The first thing that struck me about this watch was the stunning face. It is an unusual metallic blue & black 'pinstripe' pattern that contrasts perfectly with the gold tone case.
The orange second hand also provides a handsome accent, along with the white hour & minute hands and date keeper.
This watch measures approximately 1.5" in diameter including the crown.
There is some slight wear to the crystal, but nothing significant at all.
This watch has been serviced and keeps great time and date.
This watch requires daily winding.
