Thread: What do you have incoming?

  1. #1

    What do you have incoming?

    Figured a thread to show what vintage watches you have incoming would be fun.

    I just pulled the trigger on this fun vintage Olma.

    Olma, Oris, Vostok, Casio, Smiths, Luch, Elgin, Fossil, Orient

    Pretty cool. Do you have any info on the movement inside? A google search was not that helpful.

    Thanks!

    Most of the Olmas I have seen are AS movements but some are ETA.

    I haven't seen an Olma with faceted crystal before and for $21 I couldn't say no.

    Pretty excited about this one.





    It isn't really working and I payed a bit more then I wanted but it is a tank (which was on my to buy list this year) with exploded numerals which I love and in 44mm length from one of my favorite vintage brands.

    Edit: Believe it is a variation of the the ETA 1090.

    Very nice. Once got me a Boluva rectangular that works more often than not, but that isn't all that great for a watch.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Well, I've got a vintage incoming, but I won't post it yet. It shouldn't be too hard to guess the brand. On it's own it is a somewhat common version of this watch but within the very specific realm of my collection it is a pretty spectacular find. I will post it when it arrives.

    Yup. I have a bit of a reputation for that. I'm mostly doing ti for Scottjc, as I think he will find the whole package somewhat amusing.
