It was about 28 years ago when I got interested in vintage watches. At that time my 2 favorite brands were Hamilton and LeCoultre, they were also the only ones I could afford. My all time favorite was the LeCoultre futurematics. I must have owned at least 15 of them over the years, all different in small ways.
About a year ago I was going through some dealer web sites and lo and behold there was another. I found one with a combination of steel and rose gold and I could not resist. I have had about a year and to me they are still one of my favorites and they look as good as they did 28 years ago.
