    Anyone into mechanical watches?

    I have been wearing either a quartz or a G-shock for years and just felt like getting a nice watch. I haven't had a mechanical watch since the mid-70's. I found a 76 year old fellow selling his barely worn, 10 year old Victorinox, Swiss Army Infantry. The watch was $395 back then and the new Automatic Infantry is about $550 which I can't afford. I sold a nice knife to get this. Something cool about seeing the mechanism work and really cool to see a sweep second hand again!

    Nice watches Dan. I had that same watch on the right until someone stole it. Those are both quartz.
