I went on a thrift crawl last week. I told myself it was for the thrill of the hunt. I still came home with three watches: two Seikos and one Cardinal. the one Seiko is a windup, the other is quartz. i bought them both because I wanted the nice Hirsch strap on the battery-powered timepiece for the windup. And the Cardinal is also mechanical, is keeping good time and was a steal at $3.99.
The eight-sided Seiko is from 1980. I’m kind of into the more daring designs of watches from that era and the Roman numerals are giving me a Cartier vibe so it’s a keeper for now.
