Just found this on my travels. Worth bringing it back to life?

It's quite nice, including the name ("Stylist", cool or what?), but It depends on how much "bringing it back to life" takes.

New battery and a new strap, quick clean up of the front, should do the trick.

If you ooze masculinity, like some of us do, you have no reason to fear pink.

Glad to have you back, hermano! And two stylish watches you've got. I agree with Nick, I like marginally better the first one, mainly for its "square" shape, but it'd even look better to me with Arabic numbers instead of Roman numbers

I like this one HBB. If it's just a strap, a battery and a clean then I'd say go for it
It's not the cost of the suit that counts, it's the worth of the man inside it

That Longines is a beaut Mutley. I don't own a square watch but that's certainly one I'd bite your hand off for (pun intended!)  ;D

Here is a very cheap way of getting retro looking watches - the EagleMoss Military Collection - it was one of those "Buy issue 1 then get the whole collection" offers. The watches are very cheaply made, and obv. feel quite 'tinny'  & very  light, but they look quite nice and for 9-99 , who can complain.
