I have always liked old stuff. Old leather jackets, classic cars, and of course ... watches. Now, they have to be wearable. 36mm is about as small as I can go. Here are a few of mine.

My absolute favorite watch is thisHeuer Calculator Chrono. My Dad bought this new in 1972 in New Orleans. I found it in his desk drawer a couple of years ago, where it had been sitting for about 30+ years. I had it serviced and it runs like a champ. It keeps about +2 a week. This must have been a huge watch for that time period. It's 45mm across.



A friend on another forum sent me this NOS DOXA. I don't know how old it is, but it's cool and around 36mm.



This Jenny Swiss diver chrono is about 38mm. It's from Jenny who now owns DOXA.



Last is a 40mm Aquastar Seatime with an internal bezel. This one is from the late 60's or so.

Wow, that Heuer is one very special watch! I noted the "automatic" on the dial, and am curious, any idea as to the movement in this watch? For sure, along with its obvious sentimental value, that watch has to be priceless to you. Thanks for the post!

The Heuer Calculator came with the HeuerCalibre 11 and cal 12. I have also seen a few where the crown is between the pushers, and containing a 7750 or something similar. Mine has the Heuer cal 12. It has micro-rotors that wind it. ~ David
