Last weekend I had a chance to handle my friends vintage 2573J from 1960.
This watch is only 33mm wide without crown and I must say that at the first moment
this watch felt rather small on my wrist. Interestingly after about 3-4 hours I thought
it was 'just about right' (I have a thin wrist, mind you).
Nothing fancy here...just simple and classic beauty. Hope you'll enjoy the pictures:
(excuse the poor quality, I left the batteries for my XTi & G9 at work and had to use the old & little Panasonic fx30)
