Vintage Favre Leuba Mid Century 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.
HANDSOME, HANDSOME, HANDSOME!
Another one of my favorite old watch brand is Favre Leuba - not because they were super fancy or anything like that. They just made some strikingly good-looking watches. This fella is no exception.
A strong black face with antique'd brass hour markers & hands housed in a stainless steel case. The face measures just under 1.5" wide including the dial.
I can estimate this watch to date back to the 1960's or 1970's.
This watch requires daily winding and has been tested to ensure accuracy.
