To keep the story short.

A friend of mine gave me the task of finding a clock for his wife's 40-year birthday.

Since she turns 40 so it is natural to find a watch at the time.

Found this Datejust from 1973 from the local watch pusher.

On the way home I let it be on the arm. That was not good.

Have trouble getting it of my wrist. I'm simple to become absolutely love it.

He does not know I bought it and has not mentioned it.

Thinking of keeping it and find another watch for him.

I didn't thought 36mm was something for me but thought wrong.







I have heard of T swiss T but OT swiss TO.
Is there anyone who can help me with that one????

Sigma dials are often found on watch from 72-76. Nice and clean watch.

stainless steel version that you like but won't love. Maybe something in 34mm...if you dare.

Very nice! I have the same watch (1603 with Sigma dial) but I tweaked it a little with the smooth bezel.

Good luck finding the friend a new watch.
