HUDSON INSTALITE

Postby koimaster » March 5th 2017, 1:43pm

I recently went through the equivalent of a watch enthusiast’s mid-life-crisis. I've owned sports watches, dress watches, tool watches, chronographs, time only, white faces, black faces, vintage, new, homages, originals, and so on. I thought I had my bases covered until I came to a truly horrifying realization – I didn’t own a single piece that wasn’t round. No squares, no rectangles, no barrels, no tonneaus, nothing. So after a few long nights of late-night research and a bit of goading at a local meet up, I hit “Buy It Now” on an auction for a NOS (new old stock) mid-70’s Hudson Instalite. Pull out the bell-bottoms and flower print – rectangle case, here I come.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

What makes purchasing a piece of man jewelry so fucking dramatic.
