Watches

Heuer Camaro

Feast your eyes on the above… That’s a Heuer Camaro – a manual wind Chronograph made between 1967 and 1972 or so. Heuer Camaros are special in their own right, but what makes this watch so damned cool is the “Champion” logo featured on the dial. No one really knows why Heuer produced the watch with the Champion logo, but they have become very collectable. In fact, the watch pictured went for around $3700 on eBay…

My guess? Top execs at Champion were given one hell of a Christmas bonus.

Either way, I want one.

Vintage Military Watches

I love me some vintage military watches… And Gear Patrol just published a neat little round up of some of the most iconic. If watches or just vintage mil stuff is your thing, but you don’t have the basics down, go here.

Maratac Mid Pilot Watch

An email I got yesterday:

“Hey man, I have $300 to spend and I want an automatic watch that will last for the rest of my life. I play hard too… What should I get?”

There aren’t a lot of quality automatics on the market for that short of dough, but if I had to pick one I’d probably go with one of the Maratac government issue watches. They are Japanese movements, but they are also built like a brick shit house. My favorite at the moment is the Red Crowned Mid Pilot. You can get them here… or watch eBay for better deals.

G-Shock GB6900AA-5

I’m actually a pretty big fan of G-Shock watches – the cheaper the better. While they make a lot of “whizz bang” watches, I’m more into their classic lines that simply tell time without cluttering anything else up. That being said, this new bluetooth watch has some potential.

Check out the details.

Seamaster Bullhead

A buddy of mine at Omega just casually dropped a bomb on me. Apparently, they are getting to re-release the iconic Omega Seamaster Bullhead. It’ll be true to the original save for the modern auto movement… And count on it being VERY expensive, but man-oh-man….
