    1970ís Cool !

    Despite having a decent selection of modern watches I always seem to be drawn to my SHOM.

    Itís almost 50 years old and in my opinion still looks super cool. Also running within 5 seconds a day which is more than acceptable.
    Does anyone else have a favourite vintage piece that puts a smile on their face ?

    1970ís Cool !

    I would be more than happy with the SHOM
    I find myself increasing drawn to my vintage watches, I like tritium dials and hands. Especially in a chunky divers watch. My modern watches donít get worn as nearly as much

    Just a selection of the current favourites

    Omega did make some cool watches. This is my Geneve Dynamic from the earlier part of the decade. Small but perfectly wearable.

    That SHOM is very sweet.

    Have a few neo vintage offerings that I prefer when compared with the more modern pieces in the collection. Tend to wear them quite infrequently though.

    A couple of my favourites.

    That Seamaster 200 really rocks my boat. A fair chunk of my collection is '70s.

    Love the SHOM and have had a few, and still have the one which I had Watchco make me, a Lefthanded crown version some years ago for a previous birthday.
    It's just a matter of time...

    A significant proportion of my admittedly small collection is from the 70's

    From 1972/73 these two:



    I got the 6139 back from a service last week and it has been on my wrist ever since.

    And from 1978, my Omega Baby Proplof


    I thought I was going to need to sell the Omega earlier this year to fund a business venture, but I am very glad now nobody bought it!

    I have a real soft spot for these flightmasters as they have such wonderful colours on the dials.

    Yes incredible colours and different enough to justify having both. I can't pick a favourite! Haha

    Only have this Seiko Speedtimer from 1976, with the rare JDM bracelet which is way better than the normal one. Generally in great condition as worn for only a couple of years before getting a new Ďwearerí

    Some cool watches in this thread.

    Personally, I'd never heard of the SHOM before, but as ever Google is my friend, and this link about how the name came about might be of interest to anyone else who was similarly flailing in the dark :-)

    Much of my collection is retro 60'2/70s. Mostly lower end but still much-loved.

    My favourite is either a beat-up old Navitimer or this:



    The Soccer watch, still my "posh watch". Trotted out on high days and holidays. Papers date it to 1976.

    Always liked some of the designs in the 70's


















    And by the end of the 70's these were everywhere

    Heuer Autavia GMT. Think it's from around 1970. Uber cool.

    So lucky to have picked this up from SC a few years ago

    One of my favourites, this early 1970s BBC issued chrono



    At nearly 42mm diameter, it is a very modern-sized one too.
    I have no need for a Speedmaster, this is everything that has and more

    Fantastic watch. Better than any Speedmaster (and I like a Speedmaster.)

    Some lovely watches already in this thread.

    All but three of my collection are vintage and the majority of those are from the 70's. It is certainly my favourite watch decade. These are the ones I have photographed this year and are just a small selection of what I have.

    Citizen Cosmotron


    Seiko Advan


    Citizen Multialarm


    Another Cosmotron


    Ricoh Riquartz


    Dugena with ETA Dynotron (I do like an electronic watch)


    Girard Perregeaux with 352 Quartz movement

    There are very few watches that I covet, but that's one of them.

    I'm also fond of the Cosmotron.

    For me so far, the Flightmasters and Autavia are neck-for-neck first place, with the BBC Lemania just a neck behind in third.

    That is a lovely dial. Citizen gave their Cosmotron's some many a good dial. I seen/been tempted by many Cosmotron's and never seen two with the same dial.

    After feeling a bit disheartened with the whole watch collecting malarkey, this thread has ignited a passion for something I didn't know I had, 70s style watches
