Vintage Quartz Divers

Love me some vintage quartz divers from the '70s and '80s. They were often more expensive new than their mechanical counterparts. Now they fly under the radar and good deals can be had. Still have most, but a couple are gone... https://imageshack.com/a/img924/3667/OCQL6S.jpg https://imageshack.com/a...

Re: A new high in low[balls]...

That situation sucks. What's even worse are dealers that hind behind collector facades. There are a couple that I've dealt with in the past. Of course it wouldn't be expected that a purchase or trade should be one-sided, but don't BS me by acting interested in a possible equitable deal and then lowb...

Damn. That's interesting.
I haven't had any issues with the 3 models I have had (still have 1)
Makes me curious about having a look inside though.

I will interested to see what (if anything) Unimatic has to say about this.. :think:
No issues with mine either. All very interesting.

Re: Can I pull this off?

Had a vintage 34mm Ebel that at first I thought was too small. Started wearing it and loved it. It's all in what you get used to. Wish I hadn't sold it.

Good looking watches. I almost bought a stainless version that was listed cheap on WUS a while back, but read some poor reviews and decided not to.

Good points all around. It’s mostly not an issue of his posts. Just kind of a gut feeling. I could be wrong and hope I am!

I've learned to always trust my gut feeling. If something about a deal or buyer makes me even a little uncomfortable, I pass.

Re: New Dino Zei Watch Brand?

I owned a Dino Zei back in the day along with a couple of Anonimos. Liked them back then because they were unique. This new collection is a f'ing train wreck, especially the models with the giant "DZ" logos.

Re: Ever sold a watch because of weight?

Reminds me of back in the day when I sold watches for a living. More often than not, people would judge the quality of a watch by it's weight. I'd always get a kick out watching some neophyte jiggle a watch up and down, then proclaim that because it wasn't heavy enough, that it must be cheap.

I'm a big fan of vintage quartz divers. I sold this 40mm Squale Technisub last year. Wish I had held onto it. When I bought it, it came with its original box and sales receipt dated 8/23/85. It originally sold in Buenos Aries. I've not seen a one like yours before - very cool. The bracelet appears t...
