Vintage Waltham Gold Plated Day/Date 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.
Oh jeez, I could not wait for this one to get back from being serviced!
Check out this vintage watch from Waltham, one of my favorite vintage brands.
A handsome face with raised gold-tone time keepers, stainless steel case and those awesome day & date functions. Totally Old School
The crystal is in great shape (which is hard to find on these) but my favorite little detail is the red arrow at the tip of the second hand.
The case is nice and weighty, measuring 1.75" tall, 1.5" wide & .25" thick.
I placed a very cool olive green leather band on him to complement the gold plating.
This watch requires daily winding and has been serviced to keep great time.
