    Okay, I just have to ask this, as I can't see from the pics -- is this a real vintage or is it assembled from the NOS pieces?

    There is a shop in the french quarter of New Orleans called "Quarter Past Time." My wife and I stopped in last year while we were in south Louisiana for our anniversary. They had a wonderful selection of cleaned, serviced, but not refinished pieces. I had a really good experience, and after the fact the only negative review I could find was that the owner was an :censored:. As my anniversary present, my wife bought for me a 1957 Longines which has very quickly become my favorite watch. (Pic below). I won't say how much she payed, but it was well within the budget you're looking for. They also had plenty of vintage Omegas, Hamilton, Heuer (predecessor to Tag Heuer)... pretty much name it in a great variety of price ranges. If you want, I can PM you the phone number and/or email for the owner. I certainly intend to go back.



    When I was looking at the shop mentioned above, I found myself really gravitating towards the different Longines. There were plenty of Omegas, but they all had that same Omega character. The Longines stood out as elegant and separate. To that end...

    p.s. That Raymond Weil Kappelan posted is the sort of small, simple, elegance I've been digging these days. Rock on. :slayer:

    Really nice! The vintage Seamaster 300 looks great on a NATO strap.
