Rhyme or Reason

I suppose there is rhyme and reason for my interest (obsession) with retro watches.

Perhaps the rhyme and reason is that I like watches from the 1930's like the Hamilton's below.

1930's Hamilton Watches (well actually the far left one is from 1929, the rest '30s)

Perhaps the rhyme and reason is that I collect Hamilton watches in general, like the ones below.


Some of my Hamilton collection 1930-1960

Perhaps the rhyme and reason is that I collect Bulova watches, like the ones below.

Perhaps the rhyme and reason is that I collect Gruen watches, like the ones below.

Or perhaps there is no rhyme or reason, I just like retro watches.

Oh, by the way, that dealer catalog page I posted in my preview to this post, there was reason. Part of my Hamilton collection includes the Lindsay shown in the add and shown second photo from above, third from the left. It is my most recent "acquisition".
