Ok looks like i will kick this off....Around 10 years ago i had quite a nice vintage watch collection,which i sold off for personal reasons.The usual fare of Pulsars ,Hamiltons and Seikos etcThere were photos listed ,as i recall somewhere on this forum.....Among them there were two i very much regret selling,one a nos Hamilton QED which was genuinely from a closing store and was as you would have collected it from the shop in 1974.Not like the usual "nos mint" stuff that constantly circles around ebay with multiple owners,this was something special.The other was a Seiko 0624 with the yellow face,also new but not working.I managed to source a new module from Japan and it was like new again.Sadly i sold the Hamilton to a gentleman in the States who was also called Mr Hamilton.Even after all these years he contacted me recently looking for more....
The Seiko went to Australia i think........Of them all though the Seiko was the biggest regret.
This takes me nicely to Ventura and the Delta.A watch with almost identical dimensions and very similar design,in fact it could well be the 0624 if it was made today.
However it must be said while the Seiko is beautifully made and designed,the Delta is on another level with so much detailing and subtle design elements its imo the worlds most beautiful digital watch.Gone is the mass market feel of the Seiko,replaced with stunningly high build and finish, and introducing a beautiful blue tinted sapphire glass which is curved inwards, its a designers dream.
Designed by Hannes Wettstein the Delta along with the original Alpha are future classics .Sadly its been discontinued for a few years now.....
This all comes round to this thread,as i have managed to purchase probably the last Delta available from a registered Ventura dealer in the original standard durinox on a black buffalo leather strap.Pictures to follow.........
