Vintage 1973 Caravelle by Bulova 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.
Behold the beauty of this vintage gold tone Caravelle!
I met the original owner who purchased this watch in 1973, that's right before I was even born! This guy was the epitome of an original gangster! I can only imagine the things this watch has witnessed!
The crystal on this watch is clear and scratch free. His bold dial with applied block markers and gold tone/red hands is in flawless condition.
The case measures about 1.5" across including the crown and the backside is marked with the Caravelle logo & water/shock resistant notations.
I found this great shiny textured band with red stitching that sits beautifully off the accent color of the second hand.
