    Hello. I am Jo , German and now living in Southern France near St. Tropez.
    I stopped collecting vintage watches 10 years ago (ENICAR as my favourite brand), sold a lot of them (I regret some decisions) but since three years, the addiction came back. Not as before. I am now at the point, having found my all day "exit-watch" as seen below: the big triangle. I will add some pictures of my other vintages peu-à-peu. Including the last sales (if this is allowed) . All the pictures are taken by myself.

    So I start, with my two OMEGAs and four pictures: The B.T. ist IMHO originial, except the crown (?). I am not sure; Signed: yes, Diameter OK, but a little bit to small. I own the original 1039 bracelet; but not mounted. I need some spare-parts and have asked today @mcguyver . The watch has the certificate from OMEGA and can be seen on youtube as she was sold in USA with the .550 and sold to the EU.




    The "Conni" I bought 35 years ago from a german naval-guy. With the original "golden" bracelet (not on the pics). All is gold-capped (60 mikrons?).
    And please excuse my humble English, I will always write here without google translation.
    ATB , Jo

    Waw ! Nice watches as well, I have a little preference for the Bulova Accutron Diver.
    I presented my collection also when I presented myself, if you want to have a look.

    The Benson is a beauty, but the IWC steals the show. Thanks for posting.

    Hello and welcome!

    The Omega Seamaster looks great and so are the rest of your collection.

    Look forward to seeing rest of the watches.

    This BULOVA ORD. DEPT. U.S.A. was my fist mechanical watch to start collecting in 1982; from a flea-market in Germany (price : 5 Deutsche Mark). As you see: hands relumed with Radium, the only "mistake" I ever made (reluming)

    and another nos watch: ALTITUDE , found in a jeweler-shop in France mid 90ies.
