Gosh, these 1950’s era Rolex movements are gorgeous. Here we’re looking at a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Reference 6564 with a self-winding, caliber 1030. Under the hood. (Store Inventory # 11556, listed at $3100, available now for purchase in store & online.)
Hey now! That’s a fine looking timepiece! Coming soon: A 1965 Omega Seamaster 600 Reference 135.011 with a black dial, stainless steel case, & a manual-wind, caliber 601 movement. Keep your eyes peeled!
I know you're a gun blog but being that you're swiss I figured I'd ask anyway. What's your opinion on luminox watches?
I’m not a huge watch-nerd, so take my opinion with a grain of salt.
They are cheap Swiss watches, with a good Ronda mechanism, and if you like their look and need visible time in the dark, it’s far from a bad choice.
In that price bracket, you don’t have a lot of choice anyway, aside from a high-end G-Shock or the recent Victorinox I.R.O.N. which seems to be pretty good too (the Victorinox is built like a tank, but I’m not sure how readable the time is without illumination).
