Opinions Wanted
« on: January 11, 2007, 05:30:46 PM »

I'm a bit of a watch enthusiast.  Lately I've been thinking of adding a vintage automatic to the stable.  I came across this 1970's vintage Swiss made automatic on ebay.  Tressa Watch Company is no longer in business, but their watches were pretty good quality, genuine Swiss made movements.

The problem is that I can't decide if this watch is really sharp, or hideously ugly.  At times it strikes me as both.

Opinions, cool or barf?

In all honesty I wouldn't wear it, but not because I think it's particularly hideous, it's just not really my style. If I saw someone else wearing it, I certainly wouldn't find problem with it.

Wow, it's certainly no everyday watch -- pretty glam.  But it has a cool retro look, if you're asking.

I'd hit it.

I like the shape of it, but I'm not into the shiny section in the center of the face (mother of pearl?).  I don't think I could pull that off, but I usually dress pretty casual.  Oddly, I would have liked a more industrial-looking watch like the first picture, which showed the inner workings.

Sounds like you'd like skeleton watch.  Clear dial so you can see the movement running.

I'm really on the fence. I should probably just be patient and something I like better will probably come along, but I've been looking at this watch all week with my finger on the "Buy it now" trigger. Hungry

Not exactly my style but it would be unique. I think it is very interesting looking.
