We all know that I fall for the vintage charm- I love patina, there’s no doubt. I genuinely believe that watches were made better 40 years ago than they are today. But, in every million, there’s one that blows me away. This Datejust blew me away. Yes, it was made alongside thousands of average watches that I wouldn’t consider breaking my “vintage only” rule for but this one is special. It’s not easy to understand what this dial does on the light without actually wearing it but I’ll do my best- straight on, its pitch black. The white outer track bursts and the hour markers fade to the back. In the light, it completely illuminates. Oh, and in the dark, the lume is just right. And yes, we found it with its original paperwork (BOOM).
