OMEGA REDUCED MARUI | home

Omega did very few of panda dials in the past in fact they're not you'd count for for such a watch. Except for the one they released in Japan exclusively for the store Marui back in the 1990's. Not very much is known about its origin really other than the fact that Marui is a well known department store sort of like Macy's or Nordstrom. It's very possible that the Omega produced less than 2,000 of these back then as they we're really popular at the time of release.In theory, Omega does sell…

HAMILTON 9960 | home

The 90's was the decade where the Khaki really took off for Hamilton. Hamilton became sort of a generic and came out with one chronograph after another and some looked a little more like Swatch than an actual Hamilton watch from two decades before.

I love the fact that they took the time and really refine this watch by actually placing the Hamilton…

CROTON REF. 973001 | home

As a family owned and operated business, Croton Watch Co. started making watches in the later part of the 1800’s, around 1878. The company grew and quickly established themselves as one of the fine watchmakers for men of that time period. Big size chronograph watches have started to pop up little by little around the 70's. It seemed like this is the time when Swiss watch companies became expressive as a way to win everyone against the Quartz movement that was quickly taking over. This large…
