Vintage Waltham Brown Dial 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.
I found this style at an antiques shop near Hollister, California. You will always catch me hunting for great old watches, especially from the Waltham company.
This model features a unique frosted brown dial with day/date keeper.
The steel case measures roughly 1.25" across and is in very clean condition.
I placed a new smooth black leather band on him to class him up, just a little bit.
Daily winding required.
