    Currently rocking a seiko 3169-6022 automatic chronograph, the first auto chrono to make it to the market back in 1969. My example is from September 1972, got it for under 200 bucks in pretty good and almost original condition on ebay, but is in dire need of a service...
    Arghhhh can't post pictures yet!!! I'll be back...

    Yard-Sale excursion with the wife payed off today. Picked a N.I.B. 32 Degrees watch at a yard sale. The mini dials are functional and the chronograph ring has action and the back SS cover plate is screwed on. Swiss Movement. Leather strap but that's going to change.
    Not a vintage watch though ...... so umm.. please accept these flying pigs

    Flying pigs accepted! haha but seriously don't knock yard sales. I picked up my accutron spaceview and a jules jurgensen 1962 (unknown type) for 50 bux, both of them! The lady selling them said the spaceview was a children's toy watch and that the jules was broken... it was a manual-wind watch that simply hadn't been wound LOL.

    Holy crap, I grabbed a Jules Jurgensen classic dinner watch from a yard sale last year also was new in box with dead battery. Definately pre-2k , maybe 1976 I dunno. We have to get a picture of some of these finds tomorrow.

    That's crazy. I never heard of the brand but I bought it because it was so unique. Not necessarily my style but still pretty cool '60s piece.

    You kidding me?
    I've been lusting after that exact model accutron for at least four or five years, but i just cant bring myself to blow the cash they're currently going for... can't believe you found such an awesome watch, with such history and a unique (well, sort of) movement for less than fifty bucks!

    Nahh I took that picture with my phone. I tried to take a picture of the back but it looks like crap, plus you can see a bit of corrosion on the case back. Clearly a new band was put on it that I'm not a fan of at all. But I like your 32 deg., they make some interesting looking watches.
