Free Shipping $100+
I have always had a thing for old watches. There is something about the character of an old watch that just defines "Old School Cool" for me. I've just thought it was so much cooler to discover a beautiful old watch than to just walk into a store and buy a new one. There is a strength in knowing how old they are and seeing them faithfully keep perfect time. There is a magic in thinking of the life that this watch had before it came into your hands. And there is a beauty in knowing that some things just never go out of style. When I was growing up, my dad never splurged on anything. His focus was on taking care of us kids. But the one thing that he loved was a great watch. I think I inherited that from him. As Blade + Blue is really a 'Thank - You' letter to my father for all that he taught us about being men, I couldn't be more excited and proud than to share this collection of beautiful found watches with you. Oh boy, what a spectacular find - a Vintage Hamilton Field Watch in gorgeous condition. These are highly sought after and you guys always seem to grab them before I have the chance to decide to keep them for myself! This is the classic field watch dial: black with white time numerals, military hour markings, khaki second hand & khaki markers on each hour. The watch has a characteristically small case, measuring just under 1.5" across including the crown. Now, the back has several markings: Watch Wrist General Purpose/MIL-W-463748/HAMILTON/1979/DISPOSE RAD WASTE/US There are also a series of numbers which I just cannot make out (forgive me, my eyesight just isn't what it used to be!). I placed a navy blue canvas band on him to make him even just a little bit cooler. This watch has been serviced and keeps great time and date. This watch requires daily winding. Only 1 available
