    Modern reissued watch appreciation THREAD

    I realised again recently that I am not a vintage guy but I really like the style of some of the classic watches from years gone by.

    I currently have two modern reissues of classic watches. A 60th anniversary Seamaster and a SLA017.

    Some pics of both watches and I hope other members who own modern interpretations or historic reissues will add to this thread.

    I don't actually own any reissues but some of them are lovely. Your Seiko being one; I also think the Longines Legend Diver and the Big Eye Chronograph are very nice. I'm tempted by the Hamilton manual wind officers field watch too

    I guess there are around 35 years between my two Sinn 140s. The yellow hands have faded on the original (not my photo of the newer one BTW).

    I think the Heuer Monaco Re-Issue (CAW211P) is a cracker.

    The Seiko is a keeper for me and I have never said that about any watch before :)

    I have the SLA017 as well and I have to say it is really a great watch (bracelet not so great). It really makes you question the price of a lot more ‘expensive’ alternatives.

    Pretty faithful to the 1960s version, the Zenith CP2.

    I have the Tudor Heritage Ranger, don't really think of it as being a modern reissue but of course it is - and it's a cracking watch.



    I do quite like the Timex Marlin reissue too.

    I have a couple of Hanhart flieger chronographs and a Hamilton field watch. I really enjoy wearing all of them.

    I have a Zenith CP2 re-issue that is limited to 1000 pieces. (at least I have for now - I had to sell as I don’t have limitless funds). Wonderful piece very true to the original. I will let the reader do their own research as it has been covered by ablogwatch etc. It’s it’s last day with me still wonder if I should keep it (agggh)



    The original (from web)

    The CWC80 re issue is well executed.
    I to like a watch with vintage looks but modern reliability

    Well this probably qualifies as a re-issue (although may be stretching it with the Rio edition):-


    Regret selling this Longines 1967 diver though.. can't even remember what I replaced it with:-

    Presumably these two count...





    The two Archive Series watches from Bulova. Both larger than the originals but faithful to the designs.

    Another CP2 re-issue. Slightly odd really, it was supposed to be limited to 1000, but it isn’t. Zenith have covered every angle, numbered, flyback, bronze, frosted steel, hard to keep up. But they are lovely watches, with the El Primero movement.
    Incidentally, they are big...43mm..because the original 1965 version, for the Italian military, was big.
