Re: Vintage itch... scratched.

Re: Vintage itch... scratched.

Nice watch. Vintage watch collecting can get out of hand fast. My last vintage dress watch I picked up and it was my birth year with box and papers. And a lot of nice vintage watches can still be had for under a 1000 bucks on brand names cheaper than new ones if you go on the hunt took me a year to ...

Re: New to me. Glycine Combat 6

I like these Glycine field watches. I've been thinking about getting the Combat 7 because it's smaller, at 41mm, and would be a better fit for my wrist size. https://www.amazon.com/Glycine-Combat-Vintage-Automatic-GL0238/dp/B07G4D25ZY Ever thought of getting one of there originals from there heyday...
