Now that itís June, itís time for vacations, adventures, and all things outdoors. This weekís vintage lineup will help you do all of that adventuring in style: on offer are a fantastic Tudor Sub thatís a great value proposition as well as a rugged tool watch, a Breitling AVI Chronograph ref. 765 for those who fly themselves to far away lands, and an unmistakably Ď70s Omega Speedmaster to stand out in a crowd. P.S. Thereís still time to get your dad a vintage watch for Fatherís Day!
1992 Tudor Submariner Reference 79090

You can never go wrong with a sub. Though this particular example isnít the classic black dial, black bezel Rolex Submariner iteration, itís still hard to argue with this blue on blue Tudor from the early Ď90s. One of the many arguments for it is that itís not something you see every day. With a Rolex-signed caseback and Rolex Triplock crown paired with a sturdy ETA movement, you get a robust tool watch thatís a little bit different than other Subs out there.*
1960s Breitling AVI Chronograph Reference 765

This Breitling AVI chronograph from the 1960s is a pilotís watch through and through. The reference 765 has appeared throughout the years in many forms but weíre a fan of this well-loved example. From the large Arabic numerals and the big crown, all they way down to the 15 minute counter sub-dial that was used to time pre-flight checks, the new owner of this watch will be able to picture the pilotís of old soaring through the skies when they look down at their wrist to check the time.*
1970s Omega Speedmaster Mark III Reference 176.002

If you want your watch to be unassuming and help you blend into the crowd, this watch, my friend, is not for you. Itís big, itís bold and it is certainly noticeable thanks to the massive case made by Ervin Piquerez S. A., and the beautiful metallic blue dial. This watch isnít just flashyóitís the first Speedmaster to contain an automatic movement with a date function. Sometimes you donít have to choose between style and substance!
