I have always had a thing for old watches


And there is a beauty in knowing that some things just never go out of style

As Blade Blue is really a 'Thank - You' letter to my father for all that he taught us about being men, I couldn't be more excited and proud than to share this collection of beautiful found watches with you

But the one thing that he loved was a great watch

Even the font used for the time markers is worth a look

For example, the motion of your arm when you are wearing it helps build up it's energy supply

His focus was on taking care of us kids

I have to mention that this watch runs on automatic movement

I placed a new textured black leather band on him, I think the white stitching catches the white in the face just perfectly

I recommend that you familiarize yourself with automatic movements if you are interested in purchasing this watch

I think I inherited that from him

I've just thought it was so much cooler to discover a beautiful old watch than to just walk into a store and buy a new one

I've seen companies making new watches with automatic movement and I've also witnessed some frustrated youngsters who aren't familiar with this type of functionality

It is absolutely old school

It is painted steely blue white, but the yellow hands time markers and the orange second hand really add character to this piece

Oh boy, this one kills me

Only 1 available

So you may need to wear the watch for about an hour for it to gather the fuel it needs to run

There is a magic in thinking of the life that this watch had before it came into your hands

There is a strength in knowing how old they are and seeing them faithfully keep perfect time

There is something about the character of an old watch that just defines Old School Cool for me

This is a vintage 1972 Timex with a ridiculously good-looking multicolored face

This means that it doesn't run on a battery or even from daily winding

This watch runs on kinetic energy that builds up when being moved

What you need to really know is that if the watch remains unused for a while, it needs to build up energy in it's system in order to properly function

When I was growing up, my dad never splurged on anything
