In this age of chunky, cheap watches this example hearkens back to a gentler time when women finished their daily toils to dress for dinner. I am no watch expert by any means, but I am sure this watch was made in the 1950s-1960s.
The elegant domed crystal is it's finest feature, there is nothing prettier than viewing the time through the magnification of genuine crystal!
The reason I am posting about this particular watch in my collection is because I was shocked to find an ebay listing for THIS exact watch style at the embarrassingly low price of $14.00.
HERE is the listing, if you are interested, I may have to pick it up myself! (This is not my listing, my Ladies Helbros is not going ANYWHERE!).
Why? I'm not sure. It sure makes it easy for a watch Fanatic, like myself, to snatch these treasures up for next to nothing, but I would love to see my collection worth more than scrap value someday, perhaps it will take time for them to catch up.
In the meantime, I will spend my evenings over a fine coffee, listening to vintage music and trying on my lovely manual wind collection like an 8 year old dressing her Barbies.
If you feel the same way, drop me a comment below, it sure would be nice to meet women of a like mind.... next I am going to feature my love of everything Timex.. especially the INDIGLOS!
