    Pulled out my Bulova 666 Diver in anticipation of buying the reissued model from Bulova.
    In October of 2017, Bulova announced that they were partnering with Analog/Shift to reissue a timepiece for the Archive Series. And they opened it up to fans and customers to vote on which model it would be. The “contestants” were the Surfboard Chronograph, the Bullhead Chronograph and the Devil Diver. The Devil Diver won the contest and it has been announced that the reissue will make a debut appearance at the 2018 Baselworld show that will be held in Basel, Switzerland in March.

    By "vintage", he may be asking only for the (approximate) date of manufacture.

    Don't normally buy new watches but had to try that new US Military inspired Hamilton got it a few months back I guess I can do a time check with a real chronometer and see if it's COSC. Also it's little brother to see the difference in size of a original.

    I found myself wearing some shorts that did not have a watch pocket, so I had to dig into my wristwatch box for a timepiece today. I don’t know much about this watch, except that I acquired it, used, in the 1960’s or early ‘70s and I like the appearance and legibility of it. The dial is marked with the brand “ALSTA”, the A.Schild 1361N movement is marked “Alstater Watch Co.” on the rotor and the stainless steel back is stamped “Alstater Watch Corp., Swiss” inside the back. I have a 1950's vintage canvas military strap on it.

    Komandirskie USSR Chistopol Watch Factory - model from the 1960s.

    IMG_2843.JPG

    I once restored it and now I wear it.
    It's not a very rare model, but has a story. I always wanted a gold '1965' Komandirskie and once a fellow member, trading with Russian sellers, got one for me.
    The watch turned out to have a broken dial foot (just half broken off), so I could not service it and it bwas sitting in parts box for years, until I drilled and extended the foot so that I could put it back together. I think I used a later, 1980s mmovement, though, I'd have to open it up as I don't exactly remember now...

    Not prime condition, but SO MINE ;)

    It's a watch ugly enough to be called 'cool'. Funny times in watchmaking, I'd say ;)

    Ricoh hand wind day/date....marked 21-jewels: but in fact only has a 17-j movement. Apparently Ricoh commonly did this, and actually only ever produced a 21-jewel in automatic form.
    Looks nice though I think.

    Looks like I need to give it a polish. Lost this in a peach orchard for about a decade. Farmer found it hanging on the root of one of the trees when pushed them all out.
