1960s Vintage Henri Sandoz & Fils Incabloc "Tiger's Eye"

Henri Sandoz & Fils Incabloc "Tiger's Eye"
Circa 1960s

I know, this is not a Seiko, but what's to say the fanaticism of vintage watch collecting has to stop at one brand? We'd be missing out on a lot of we narrow our view yes?

And while we're on the topic of eyesight, here's a nice specimen to break out of the Seiko mould and introduce the lot to the other brands out there.

I'll be progressively posting some of the other brands for sale, but first, may I present the Henri Sandoz & Fils Incabloc Tiger's Eye.

No prize for guessing how this watch got its name.

For all you fengshui buffs, Tiger's Eye is said to be one heck of a protective stone - helping one to focus the mind and remove negative thoughts while dispelling fear in order to clear ones mind.

For the non-believers, it's just one nice dial. 

Match this with the irregular hour indices and you've got yourself one handsome wrist piece. The dial and indices catch the light in many ways, offering the owner different shades of yellow and black throughout the course of the day.
