I’ve been looking for a vintage teachers brooch watch (they are now called Nurses watches). I have watch old westerns and really like the way they look. I don’t wear a watch because of the way I type all day. I thought one of these brooch watches would be ideal. I can find new ones but they are plastic or just don’ t look right. Let me know if you have seen any or know where to get one.
You can occasionally find them on ebay !! Not many are the older vintage ones !! Have you tried a general google search ?? There was one nice one on ebay that was a Caravel which is made by Bulova but it didn`t work !! These were quite popular when I was in school back in the 60`s !! But to me they were very inconvenient to use !! Also worked in the medical field for 20 years but no one I knew used one probably for the same reason !! I would suggest buying one of the cheap ones and trying it out before investing money in an older watch !! While not a major amount of money but no sense in wasting it on something you may not like !! One other point,, some of the newer broach watches are made with the face upright,,make sure 12 o clock is at the bottom !! Most of the older watches have it at the bottom or on the side !!
