Not vintage but has a vintage looks and size.
Accutron in stainless with diamonds. Best I could tell it’s from the 1990’s and msrp was around $1000
It is a surprisingly comfortable watch.

Tom, you inspired me to put mine on.

I have two variations complete and René made me aware of and sold me a lighter variation.

I need to contact International Dial and see if they can; pull the markers, clean off the print, overspray the dial, reprint the information and glue the markers back in place. It that would come to fruition I would be a happy camper
a third variation of a gray dial. The lighter dial came to René, from Dr. Robert Ravel, a Hamilton accumulator. René, was cleaning things out and gave me the opportunity, I'm grateful.

Couple interesting nuances about the dial the lighter color as well as the triangular markers are rhodium plated as apposed to gold and finally the variation in color. The color is something in that in the right light it turns almost a light blue!

So, when some one says, "things are not so black and white, they are more grey!" What shade of grey would that be? ;)

My watch for Wednesday and Thursday was a new arrival, an Illinois Townsman:

(This case was a $35 bargain from a thrift shop. The movement looked like someone had poured silver paint into it, but the dial was good. I swapped in a good movement and cut a new crystal. This case was an especially good buy because the lugs were good; the Townsman and Metropolitan, which share a midcase and back, often turn up with damaged lugs.)

Nice grumpy. I like the milburns. I have a pair of them.
The shape really is unique and I like the way they fit me.

I'll finish up the workweek with this Manhattan. I hope it made the cut in Fred's new book.
