Great post and I love them all - particularly the Omega, great job on the restoration - but to be the voice of dissent, is the JLC really a diver's watch? With its non-rotating, ungraduated bezel? In those days you had a your tables and a j-valve on your tank. The DSA isn't really going to help you much... Still beautiful, though.
Ah, you know me, Nico.
I see the DSA as an interesting, robust watch, with (when new) great lume (witness the bezel) for night-time function. Terrific watch, just not to dive with, new or old. So very interested in your new information. But all 4 have their charms.
As for diving with them....What if you were a diver, and you KNEW one was OK...the temptation...
All the hits and scrapes and dropping happen during packing your gear, getting your gear out of the bag, putting on your gear, hanging around on the boat (optional), climbing back onto the boat (optional!) getting out of your gear, cleaning it all in the rinse tank, laying it out to dry, packing it back up....so it's easy not to ding your watch!
The diving bit is the safe part for your watch - even inside a wreck in surge and current...
Beautiful quatuor Nico, watches in superlative state!...I think you should take a new shot more directly on top of the watches as this angle doesn't do justice to the Jaeger due to the glass. Do you want to do the same for the 60s and 70s!?..Trio, Quatuor, Quintet or big band!...
What a quartet!
Blancpain Ff, Rolex, Omega, JLC... probably, the most representative diver watches brands.
Thanks for sharing and congrats for your "repoker de ases"
Love them all.
Feel free to post as many scans of these beauties as you see fit!
WOW, this is an excellent family photo. if you let other lay-person see this pic, i think they would said they look alike.
but to us who are watch lovers, especially if you are "vintage" watch lovers, you would definitely know they are representing their own right, they have their distinct features and life in each of them.
Nico, your pic makes heart and mind jumping around, love to own them all...
congrats, such a nice reunio pic of these 50's watches.
I really like the Omega, it looks fantastic. Not to mention the almighty FF.
Thanks for sharing your beauties.
Would love to and hope so too.
Any news on the European GTG?
This is a very good family!........Congratulations fot these beautiful pieces!
