Todd,

Interesting watch, what a color!

I would imagine people notice that....

Ditto on the Wittnauer. Also like the vertical day/date.

Tonight, this 1946 Elgin De Luxe

The Gruen is very sharp. Love how the band works right into it.

Today, another Elgin De Luxe from 1942ish

To Squash 61:
My black dial Bulova came in, and I now realize it is different than yours. If anyone knows our models please help. I couldn't figure it out.

Mine is from 1964, and came with a junky Spiedel band. I put on this nice leather strap, and wore it today.

Seiko 5 I picked for $42 on Cyber Monday. I also have one in green and use them for work watches. They truly take beating and live to tell about it. Plus it is only 37mm, so it almost seems like wearing a vintage watch.
