Time for Guess The Watch, Guess the Car, Guess the Year!

I thought would play off a common photo trope found on this and other watch blogs, the "Watch Posed Behind the Wheel" snap. Here's my entry taken from a Reddit post last year. My challenge to Crunchies, submit your pairings and let us amuse ourselves with guessing the watch/car and make/model/year!

It would be awesome to look at some imaginative pairings that may appear here! 馃槣

64 Dodge Polara? Or based on your user name, perhaps a 76?

Ahh, yes Dodge, but what in the pic would confirm it? Google "Fratzog." 馃槈

Long love the Fratzog! Reminds me of my 1975 Dodge Royal Monaco (The Blues Brothers or Hill Street Blues car), but the steering wheel鈥檚 not exactly the same.

I know that dash from my parents 72 Dodge Dart Swinger with the brand-your-butt-in-the-sun decorative metal strips embedded in the black vinyl seats when I was a kid. 馃槣

Had '72 sedan with those green seats and the metal bars, which worked their way out eventually High 70's fashion, frog green.

I wanna see an F91-W and a Corolla. Someone, please humor me!馃槣

And my Mom鈥檚 75 Dart Swinger. Forgot about that car. I鈥檓 sure it鈥檚 still dieseling somewhere!

I love that Timex! What is the story behind it?

eBay find, I wanted something electric, 70's vintage, pre-quartz and fairly cheap, and this caught my eye with its bright blue dial, domed acrylic crystal, and orange "rallye" sweep second hand, so I snagged it for $30. I looked it up and its a Timex from about 1973. Great expansion band, may or may not be original. it suddenly stopped after I opened the mailer, but I read that a tug on the mainspring may be needed to set it in motion, so I used a small link tool and poked it and its been ticking (loudly) for a few weeks now!

Awesome. It reminds me of a certain Omega Geneve modeI - blue dial, orange second - from the 70s too. I really love the case shape on yours - and the bracelet - and started looking for similar models on ebay. I haven't been able to find one with the blue dial and orange second hand but there are a couple with black and champagne dials that are in pretty good shape in the $35-45 range. I have a feeling your bracelet might be original based on the various ones I have seen on ebay and elsewhere. Thanks so much for the insight!
