Vintage Waltham Military Watch with Striped Band
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, when most people go on vacation, they leave their work behind. Well, not me! This sweet watch was found on my recent vacation to New Orleans. If you haven't been there, do yourself a favor and go as soon as you can!
There is definitely a charm to this watch, maybe it is 'southern charm'?
This is a vintage waltham with a very distinguished, champagne colored dial. His little red second hand pops against the subtle color of the face.
The case is in excellent condition and has the Waltham marking on the reverse side.
I replaced the original band with this navy & red striped military-style band.
Daily winding required.
