I have been dressing very casually of late, as the summer months come upon us. Nonetheless, I try to keep my vintage watches in the rotation. Citizen Bullhead today:

OMG, look how beat up that watch looks! From what I understand, I'm better off taking the bezel off and spray-painting it, than I am getting a new, after-market, one. There's that. I don't necessarily mind how beat up it looks tho. Should I even try to rehabilitate it? It works great BTW.

Those gorgeous Gold Seikos are available from Yahoo japan , I saw 6 for sale all around 2K.
I would definitely grab another one if i could get it for 2k because if I’m not mistaken this particular gold model only comes in solid 18k gold case rather than gold capped :)

^Great watches, beautifully shot. I love the numerals on the Waltham.
@Belligero, would you happen to know the name of the font?
