    I noticed that there is a guy on Etsy selling 25-35 yr old watches. It’s called WatchesRescued. Nice clean Seiko, Citizen, and a few others. They aren’t high end but look like they’d make great work watches. $20-$65 range.

    I have so many watches and simply don't wear them any more (see up thread) and need to decide what to do with them. Some are kinda nice, some just interesting, others down right cute. One is a Tissot the little girl that was visiting grand parents up the street always called the "Smiley watch".

    Another is a Christoper Ward "Battle of Britain".

    Need to have my Roamer Stingray serviced. Runs a bit fast, and the power reserve is lacking its full potential.

    No local options, so looking to ship to a watch repair house. Any suggestions? What should I expect for cost for an overhaul? Thanks in advance...

    I have one of those Seamasters! Got mine about 20 years ago. Great watch!

    I would highly recommend Rik Dietel. He serviced my Sub and did a great job.

    The Tissot looks to be fun to figure out. I like the Battle of Britain a little better....I prefer simplicity.

    Thanks for showing them :). 1853, eh? I'll have to look into these, but I bet they cost lots.

    This is my Garmin Vivofit3 Smart Watch. I like using fitness trackers and like the idea of one that actually looks like a real watch. Funny thing is that I have been using ones that only had digital displays for a while. I had to remember how to read a clock face.

    Not a watch, but figured some here might find this concept intriguing:

    I backed it this am. Currently have an iPhone SE, which I don’t use for much other than phone and texts. Weather and calculator would be nice. Calculator would be the only option I really would miss.
