Vantage Slate Dial c. 1960s



Personally I feel many of these Vantage watches from the 1960s /70s go underappreciated.  Sure, the were a budget subsidiary of a Hamilton, but they had some terrifc designs.  This one is a knock out.  The gray linen slate dial and sharp tringual shape hands along with the uber cool detail lugs all say get me to the set of "Mad Men" stat!
