Sorry, boring you with another Russian

A funky ...well it's a matter of taste really, I call it funky ...little Raketa



For a vintage watch it's rather big and "modern" at 39 mm w/o crown ...so quite wearable.
Yours for 35 +10 "buy it now" http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

Reason I'm not buying:
I bought something a little more classy

Here it is again
http://cgi.ebay.de/RAKETA-USSR-ANTIQ...item1c1d3f75ce
with gilt case & strap (and lots of pics) ...unfortunately also twice the price.
But then again they say its serviced and tested which in case of a really old watch is worth quite a bit (if true)

I haven't the slightest notion what it is (and the ad doesn't give any info either other than that it's running and mechanical) but it sounds and looks intriguing




diamond tooled, tropicalized, radar tested ...who could resist?

sorry ..still on Russians ...or Belorussians in this case.

Here's a perfect, super-slim dresswatch for under 50 Euro including shipping, serviced and all:

Luch de luxe (with 2209 movement which is only 2.9 mm thick)




put a decent strap on it and you're done

Reason I'm not buying:
I'm not all that "dressy" really

Spotted this on www.dealrush.ie today. At €18 including P&P it's a bargain and a cheap and cheerful addition to the collection

A Swiss watch "Zephyr" from 1968 ...now old stock in perfect condition.
Unitas movement, handwind.

An interesting and different piece for small money. With handwind and no complications *you just wind and set it whenever you want to wear it and off you go.

* tsk ...I overlooked the date

Yours for 50 Euro + freight



http://cgi.ebay.de/ZEPHIR-DE-LUXE-UN...item2c5e154f1d

Might not be the most beautiful watch out there, but it would certainly stand out.


Reason I'm not buying:
I'm on a watch buying hiatus right now ...I'm fast running out of wrists and days of the week to give all my recent acquisitions an airing

I recently stumbled over Aristo watches. Made in Germany, some of them with ETA 2824-2 movements at a very good price (i.e. under 300 Euro).

Look at these three from their "Dessau" range for example ...on sale at 238.-- Euro ...not to be sniffed at, I think.





http://cgi.ebay.de/ARISTO-Dessau-Bau...item3f0bc8c72b

They've got some nice Flieger-style watches too, if you're into that kind of thing

Ok ...so this is not a watch, nor will it really be a bargain ...but I found it really interesting, so it's going up here:
http://cgi.ebay.de/LUSO-Baby-Puppens...item45fbe0b489



This is (of all things!) a miniature wall clock ...for a dollhouse !

Interesting (if useless) in itself ...but what really grabbed me is the fact that the box says "made in Germany", but the back says this:

"Made (in) U.S. Zone"

which would place the date of manufacture (or at least the tooling for the case ) firmly between 1945 and 1949.

Some (presumably Black Forest area) watchmaking company must have been really desperate to get its share of the GI souvenir market.


Here it is in its "natural environment" (pic from the dollhouse museum)

This could be a tool watch / beater that should take some beating


http://www.ranger-shop.de/products/A...lgehaeuse.html

Stainless steel, 1000 m water proof, sapphire glass, Neoprene strap 25 mm wide, 43 mm diameter case.

Doesn't say what's under the hood ...but at that price it has to be quartz.

yours for 129 Euro

Reason I'm not buying ...I don't dive
