Made an impulse purchase in an antique shop in Poland. 1950s Junghans. Nothing fancy but I love the shape and size, and it blows my mind that it still works. Put an inexpensive new strap on it and loving it.

For those intrigued by getting into Microbrand watches, Zelos has two new launches coming up shortly which are very interesting.

1) Zelos Aurora (10/3) - itanium field watch with some awesome dials (hammered fume and MOP mosaic pictured) that is only $429, comes in 38 and 42mm, has an anti-magnetic case, scratch resistant coating on the case and bracelet, and Zelos' clasp with a brand new tool-less micro-adjust design. Powered by a 9 series Miyota which is a nice movement at that pricepoint.

Thinking of getting one of these 3 dressy watches for all around the same price give or take. Which is the way to go? The Baumatic looks beautiful but I wonder is that deep blue dial hard to match outfits with? Anything else I should consider?
