question for you. I see that you favor that 70sish, ovoid bezel.

Is it a chosen path? What calls you to them? I like the shape, and the dials always seem to be unique.

Probably favor that vintage (and the late 60s) due to the size and "funky" factor

First noticed watches when I was young - liked the look of my grandfather's Accutron (which was octagon shape with red dial)
Like any hobby, I bought one or two and then found the forum with all of it's catalog information....the habit grew from there

I appreciate the older watches too (20s-40s), usually find the size too small for my wrist

Nice watch Todd!

For me I have on the 1962 Sea Rover II, issued for 5 years, with a great little shark band.
