Please allow this thread to serve as a Record watch "show and tell" as well. Online research leaves one feeling unsatisfied. The Record brand seems to command little respect in the vintage watch world. Longines apparently absorbed it and then it faded away. Were the Record wristwatches more popular in Europe than here in the U. S.? Where did Record appear in the pecking order of watch brands of its day? I have the impression that it was a lower tier brand, on the order of Cortébert or Glycine. I've long been drawn to certain vintage logos that strike my fancy. I find myself attracted to the vintage Record models which feature their swan logo. None of these are going to be large watches, so the poor thing would likely be lost on my wrist if one was acquired. If I did acquire one I'd wear it despite its size. Record dials of the 1940s-1950s(?) are quite appealing. Here are a couple of images of Record watches that appeals to me. Gleaned from Google Images. This one looks suspiciously like a redo because it is so crisp. The applied swan logo has somewhat less appeal to me. Have you owned a Record watch?
