After a brief hiatus, we are back with a slew of stainless steel watches for you to explore. If sport watches are your thing we have you covered with some cool vintage Heuers and an Omega Flightmaster. Rounding out the collection is a Universal Geneve pockt watch and a Rolex Datejust. Read on for more details.
1950s Heuer For Baylor Viscount Chronometer
This time-only watch from chrono king Heuer is more than meets the eye. Its 34mm unpolished compressor-style case is both simple and understated, and the silvered dial makes it a joy to look at. But this Heuer isn’t just any old three-hander watch: it’s chronometer certified as the dial indicates, which isn’t something you often see on vintage Heuers. On top of that, this watch was made for Baylor, which was a jewelry company in Texas associated with Zales. You can read more about this watch here.
1967 Rolex Datejust Ref. 1603 With Papers
Oh how we love the Rolex Datejust. First introduced in 1945, the Datejust has become an icon of vintage watches. Its simple design makes it both wearable and cool – it’s the quintessential steel watch for everyday use. This reference 1603 boasts a stainless steel Jubilee bracelet and a fluted bezel, along with the Cyclops for the date. The best part is that this example comes with papers too.

1971 Omega Flightmaster Ref. 145.026
The Flightmaster is regarded as one of the finest pilot’s watches ever made, and we have a second generation example for you right here. The Flightmaster reference 145.026 introduced a running seconds counter to replace the 24-hour counter at nine o’clock. The second generation Flightmaster also was the first to feature the caliber 911 movement. Also, what’s not to love about a brightly colored dial and a steel tonneau case?
