God hath not promised skies always blue, flower-strewn pathways all our lives through. But God hath promised strength for the day, rest for the labor, light for the way...

Art & Mechanique Incabloc
I am a sucker for antiques! Antiques watches, telephones, typewriters, it could be anything! Shall we look at my new purchases which Ric sourced out <3 from a reliable watch dealer? - a 1960’s vintage gents dress watch from Art & Mechanique.
Had actually loved a clear faced, 3 hands watch but soon discover that the sub-seconds dial could be such an elegant classic. The gold plated case looked great and fitted my small wrist snugly.
Omega Seamaster 600
This ivory 34mm was a special edition produced for launching the Omega 600 calibres in 1960's. Love these plexi crystal gentlemen who looked forever understated and clean!
Mido Commander Ocean Star Date/Day
And finally, i ended my search for vintage ladies dress watch from this Mido reproduction. The champagne silver M7184.108.40.206 was a 23.5mm that runs on automatic ETA 2678 and keeps perfect time. 'Day' display was in French as the watch comes from Europe stock; "VIE" reads FRI in English.
The hour markers and hands have a very retro look about them, and I have to own 1 of these nostalgic collections that comes with the legendary integrated bracelet and clasp!
