1970s Omega Seamaster Automatic Ref. 176005

Full. Metal. Funk. This tonneau-shaped Omega is a '70s time machine with a matte blue dial and an eccentric handset for a bit of OG Flightmaster charm. Powered by Omega's first automatic chronograph movement, the caliber 1040, this Seamaster is one part nautical, one part Speedmaster, and nothing but vintage 1970s fun.*
1940s Jaeger-LeCoultre 'W.W.W' Military Watch

One of the rarer entries into the legendary "Dirty Dozen," this 1940s Jaeger-LeCoultre is a no-nonsense, old-world sport watch with a 35mm steel case and a hand-wound in-house movement. The watch is simple, legible, and full of history *plus, given that these beautiful vintage JLCs were made for the M.O.D., they should keep up just fine with your day-to-day life.*
