Vintage 1970's Technos Blue Face 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 lunged at this handsome fellow when I saw him, I know how much you guys love the colored faces. But I have to at least try to keep my cool around the seller!
I do not know much about this watch or the Technos brand - but based on what I have read & what the seller told me, I can estimate that this watch dates back to the early 1970's.
He has a sparkling blue dial with white numerals & logo. It is marked with the '17 Jewels' Stamp and Shock Proof & Swiss Made notations.
I placed this pretty cool black band on him, I love the royal blue stitching against that dazzling face.
The case is in beautiful condition and measures 1.5" across including the crown. You have asked for more pics of the watches on the arm, you can check me out trying to wear the watch and take the picture at the same time!
