Whew! Sorry for the late posting today. I was finishing up some work for my tailor and just sent in a piece for ELLE Decor.com which will go live on Friday.
Now where were we? Many of you know about my watch related trials and tribulations. I’ve finally found a nice replacement (at about a third of the price) for my beloved Hamilton Tonneau, but I’m afraid that it will lead to a collection, I like it that much.
This is a driver’s watch by Circa, a company that specializes in recreating wristwatches from the 1920’s to the 1950’s. I had a devil of a time choosing this particular model. You’ll notice that I’m wearing it at a funny angle — on the side of my wrist. The driver’s watches of the 1930’s were made with hinged lugs so that you could wear them this way, allowing you to check the time without removing your hands from the steering wheel.

Your watch is terrific, and I am glad to learn about Circa. My husband loves vintage style watches, and I like to wear a vintage (men’s) style myself!
I’m considering buying one myself.
How’s the gold plating holding up?
The watch looks like new. I don’t wear it as often as I used to, but it’s been through a couple of batteries and is still going strong!
