When it comes to hunting down vintage watches on eBay, it can be a gold mine, but it can also be a minefield. Our very own Christoph McNeill (you all might know him as Instagram’s @VintageDiver) wrote a must-read, common sense guide to buying vintage watches on eBay (check out Part 1 and Part 2). So if you’re looking for a vintage watch, but are still a little nervous diving head-first into those murky waters, then don’t worry — we’re here to help! Today, we have another installment of eBay Finds, our series where we highlight some great vintage gems looking for a new home. Happy hunting!
Movado – Sub Sea Kingmatic
Kicking things off is this absolutely gorgeous vintage 1960s Movado Sub Sea Kingmatic dress watch. With its simple classic dial and thin case and lugs, it has that clean Mad Men styling with the thin lugs and clean silver dial that makes this one easy to like. It features the original signed crown and a great looking raised medallion logo on the back of the unpolished case. At 34.5mm it’s not going work for everyone, but this is a really clean dress watch with a reasonable buy-it-now that’s perfect for whoever loves this style of watch.
