Vintage Revue

Post by svaglic » May 31st 2019, 4:39pm

My first Revue, 42mm lugless. Not a bad fit on my 6 3/4” wrist.
Either hazing or dust under the crystal, I think hazing.

I’ve had a thing for a normal sized lugless watch the last few years. Halios said he was going to make a smaller one and people said it would be a 44mm, he made it 48 again and just made it a mm thinner. A huge let down to a lot of people, but I went on a search for a small one.
I have a Kickstarter MMW lugless coming in, but I will probably trade it or donate it to auction since it is a 45mm and I see it will probably look stoooopid on me.
I saw this Revue lugless a year or so back and was always a little late getting one when it came up for sale, I got this one though. One came up in Dec, but the dial was off in the sum ting Wong department, so I had to let it pass. When I saw this, it was for a super high price so we haggled for a bit and I got it for less than half of his asking price. I’m impressed with the quality of this, for a vintage, it is very solid.

That's a lovely piece. I wonder if the dial wasn't relumed at some point - if so, then it must have been long ago. Still, it's as 1970s as it gets. Cool find.

Honestly .... that is just great even with the hazing - nothing wrong with a little character.

You always find cool, unique stuff.
