“Vintage” Micro

Post by justsellbrgs » Tue Apr 28, 2020 3:43 pm

I stumbled on a IGram post from Poul today. It reminded me of Korsbek.

Let’s hear about those vintage micros....Korsbek, Kremke......

I miss Bathys. Korsbek was good for the time with a fricker build. I had so many of these - and still have a Hirsch extreme rubber strap. Kremke did a good job also.

― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman

I bought a cheap watch from a crazy man
Floating down canal
It doesn't use numbers or moving hands
It always just says now
Now you may be thinking that I was had
But this watch is never wrong
And If I have trouble the warranty said
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On

Never had an Aegir, although I’d still love to.

As to Noah

I had the Kazimon 1500 bronze twice, the 1500 stainless steel once, and the Nautilus II bronze. I'd love another Kazimon.

Second from right is Chase Durer.
Can’t see far right close enough.

I also can’t recall the 1-2 unique ones Yamahaki had... German name, but can’t place it.
