Very vintage looking design.

I was on the fence, I like dress watches but I didn’t have that feeling for it.. so days goes by, 1 came up for sale, I was like ok, let’s grab it first and decide later.
So viola, the Blue Spark
I can tell why it’s so popular, it has a very classic, clean feel and somehow I feel like I’m wearing a vintage Grand or King Seiko.
