Fleamarket Find: Early 1970s JUNGHANS Quartz

My todays fleamarket find is a JUNGHANS Quart and an awesome older one that is. This movement Made in Germany with number 667.00 (neighbour of the beast) was produced from 1971 till 1974. Have to some polishing on the crystal, maybe add another strap but I think it's a stunner. Let me know what you think Crunchers! Cheers 馃嵒

Omg where are those fleamarkets? Nice catch!

That's really cool and also pretty early Quartz.

Noice! So very noice!

Roight! Roight!

What do I think? I think that's a seriously good looking watch. On my screen it appears to be in good shape too. I don't subscribe to "the more beat up a watch is, the greater the "story", and all that. No watch tells a story. I've looked on Amazon, Jomashop, Hodinkee, and Ali Express for a watch that can tell a story. Only the watch's owner can tell its story. And it's sometimes fun for us to speculate, but without the owner to tell us, a badly scratched watch could have been to the Sahara or was simply "borrowed" by his little son who ended up wearing it in the sandbox that day.

Well, every watch tells a story without having to speculate. It has no inscription what so ever, so there's no clue, no sand, nada. But, its story begins with how I bought it 馃槑

"Every watch tells a story without having to speculate." How?

In essence, a watch serves as more than just a timekeeping device. It can be a reflection of the wearer's identity, values, experiences, and even aspirations. It tells a story through its design, history, and the personal choices of the person who wears it, all without the need for guesswork or speculation.

Thank you for the reply. What is the story your recently-acquired Junghans is telling you?
