Vintage gold watches
I recently bought a vintage gold Avia Incabloc watch for not much money at all and I have been more than surprised by how I feel about it.
It is quite small and very thin, at least in comparison to my deep Black Bay Red, but there is something about the gold dial, gold hands, gold markers and case that makes it pop when on the wrist.
My son tried it on and it looks amazing on him. He owns a Black Bay 58, which he loves, but even he was taken by this and more specifically by the colouring and the way it made him feel.
There has been much talk about two tone watches which I admit to not liking, but I am starting to appreciate the overuse of gold in a watch, and more specifically in a vintage piece that is smaller than most current offerings. I learnt something new with this spur of the moment purchase.
