Do you have any model details? I love it, where can I find one?
As Geo says there are plenty around but it’s a minefield finding a good one. I wish I’d bought one a few years ago. Lots with aftermarket parts around now. No reason not to get one, but just like Maseratis, worth getting to know the market first.

Geo, you have some lovely interesting watches.

I thought you didn’t like it! Just search for Seiko Pogue 6139 and a few should pop up. I suggest you read up on them before diving in.

Is my F1 TAG more up your street?

I absolutely 'do' like the Seiko... and the TAG looks great too.
I also own Seiko btw. Under rated watch maker.

Not offhand, I’d have to check the serial number and get it from that.
That’s an absolute peach. I’m going to guess 30s/40s but whatever it really is lovely.

I like Omegas but collect Helvetias. Helvetia was originally part of the same company as Omega when Louis Brandt founded them. Omega separated off and went on to become the famous one while Helvetia disappeared in the 70s/80s.

The oldest Helvetia I have is also a pocket watch from c.1911. Not as pretty as yours but quite an early fully waterproof watch.




I’ve stopped counting how many I’ve got now .

I’m loving my Snowflake. It’s a lot better than my AirKing; lighter, more comfortable, more accurate and better looking.
