I ordered the Alsta. I just had to have it so I used my 2021 watch fund Here between 8 and 13 May.
The original 19 mm Speidel Mach One 'Twist-o-Flex' band alone goes for between $150 and $225 (not including shipping!) on eBay. The bracelet that comes with this re-edition is made to look like the Speidel. Without the 'Fix-o-Flex' part. (There were many XXX-o-Flex bands back in the day). But I find the pricing of those originals a bit opportunistic.That bracelet is so '70s, man.
Yes, it ticks all the boxes. My watch preference has changed completely over the past 20 years. Not towards the type of watch, dive watches have always been my favourite. But during the 80s and 90s I did not like those 70s designs at all. But that has changed. But not all, there still are designs that I find hideousYou pulled the trigger and put a smile on MY face.That one had you. To resist would have been futile. It's an awesome piece and looking forward to your pics and thoughts....Mega Congrats.
Hopefully it doesn’t end sir ! 🙂😉 Maybe re-issues is theWhat I also will like is questions from those colleagues who are even remotely interested in watches. Interested enough to notice I have (yet) another watch. Where will this crazy habit end? Or when? Am I moving from homages to re-issues?
Where will this crazy habit end? Or when?
Habit,obsession,passion call it what you will but end ? Hope not.
For me I found it comes in waves.Sometimes 2-3 years go by without a single buy then in a three month period I'am adding 3 or 4 new watches.Each of those buys have always been divers but now my interest is moving towards a first time chronograph.....The Hunt is on
Just curious as to what designs you would place in that category ?.......CheersBut not all, there still are designs that I find hideous
Frans, what is that one there sir? 😲
Ha, ha, ha, that is one of the designs I don't like. Yes, it's an Enicar. It's this style that put me off 70s watches.Frans, what is that one there sir? 😲
Looks like it might be some amazing vintage Enicar. 😀
The finish on it is astounding, and kind of reminds me
of a finishing style Seiko used of one of their watches
recently. This must have been what that original style
looked like. Wow, just is stunning !
😄 We can’t like everything right sir?! 🙂 Have to admit,Ha, ha, ha, that is one of the designs I don't like. Yes, it's an Enicar. It's this style that put me off 70s watches.
