A few weeks ago, something great for fans of affordable vintage occurred. Our friends at 10:25 Vintage and Analog/Shift joined forces. More specifically, 10:25 became a part of the Analog/Shift family. In the last few years, many a vintage retailer has popped up and the vintage market has gone a little crazy, so having sellers you can trust is very important. By becoming a part of Analog/Shift, 10:25 gains their well regarded reputation for selling authentic and well-running vintage timepieces, as well as an increased inventory of interesting and stylish pieces.
Today, we’re going to take a quick look at four watches that 10:25 is currently or about to offer:
Zodiac Sea Wolf
The Sea Wolf is basically the Submariner of Fifty Fathoms for those with a tighter budget. A truly iconic and innovative watch with a rich history and a great look. We’ve discussed the vintage ones previously here (and the modern ones here), which goes into some depth on their origins that I recommend reading. The model seen here is the date version with a white dial and white bezel from the 70’s. Measuring 35mm, these are certainly on the small side for something with a dive design, but they have a pleasant chunkiness that makes them wear well regardless. The white bezel is a particularly striking detail that makes this watch all the more unique.
