    Lets see your vintage watches

    I've just completed the first few stages of my Rolex vintage sea-dweller, still got some work to do on it, but over the course of doing it a couple of members have shown me some great shots of there vintage watches that i hadn't seen before and they were great for inspiration, so i think it would be good to get a small collection of pictures going (this may have been done befoe), if you've got a vintage watch (any make) lets see them, doens't matter if it's a picture on your camera phone of SLR...

    I'll kick it off with a few left over pics i had

    Rolex Sea-Dweller (bleached bezel, removed pearl, roughed up the case, new 21J movement, burnt dial & hands, sealed HEV, greased gaskets)

    Here's my 5512... lightly bleached insert, 25-19 Clark's crystal


      1960's Universal Geneve "Golden Shadow" made for Tiffany & Co.

      It has a solid 18K gold case...this was my grandfather's retirement watch.

                        I honestly love this, um, creation of yours!
                        Thanks! I love your Waltham as well. I have swapped the hands on the watch since the picture was taken. Here are the new ones:

                        Hey Mate,
                        I love the watch. Maybe we should convert it into the second known Soviet PAM in existence? I already have a case, Molnija movement ring and uncut stem! I was going to build one from the watch below that I just got off ebay, but I've killed the movement.


                          Ok, lets see what I have, not much vintages replicas, but some gens. In my opinion they are vintage ones, according the watch replicated or age.

                          They are not vintagized with old look, because I prefer the new look, but they are watches from 80's or older.

                            I like the last DJ. Not the usual Rollie style. Reminds me of the post WWII era building's clean lines.

                              Thanks a lot,

                              It is a nice one, and the bezel isn't so common, I like it a lot, my first rolex, gift of my father, in fact the watch belonged to him, than he gave me when I complete 16 years, then robed me at 20, and I found an exact model one year later.
