MED ALERT bracelets






This jewelry can save a life. We'll engrave the bracelet for you.
Tell us what you exactly what you want it to say, and your wrist size ( a tape measure is handy for that).

It's new old stock, NOS, shiny but a modest piece of jewelry.

We'll ship it off within the week.

Laura Landro, front page, Personal Journal, Wall Street Journal, recommends it, and we think it's a great idea.

If someone you love (even you, maybe) has a health condition, specific allergies or implants, emergency medics need information. You should probably also carry a flash drive that contains everything they need to know in your wallet or purse. (Someone else will have to help you with that). But if your wallet isn't available, then a vintage bracelet at least serves as something of a warning.

It is important medical history, right there on your wrist, perhaps with emergency phone number, email, or website details on the back.

Prices start at $49.00, and don't go all that much higher. All depends upon the price for engraving the bracelet.

Vintage LeCoultre, NOS


Talk about a find. This one's going straight to the vault for safe-keeping!

The tag in the video that says it is 14K Gold Case did not belong to this watch, sorry!



It's NOS, believe it or not. I think it's early because it doesn't have "Jaeger" on it, and the word "automatic" is under the "Le Coultre" above the center. It works beautifully and has a springy stainless steel band with a great deal of style and detail. The box is simply beautiful. I know they can run for $300, just the box!

If you know more, let me in on it. Thanks!

A Vintage Tissot



I can't believe I found this among the store's remnants. It's a Tissot "Trusted for Accuracy since 1853. My father replaced the band, so even though I thought it was NOS, it probably isn't. It's stainless, not gold-tone. I'm sorry, one day I'll buy a camera with a flash. The high sheen, however, should tell you that there's a very new feel to this watch. The crystal isn't scratched, and there are minimal scratches on the back.

That sun is truly something.







But the band is vintage, too, and new! A crocodile, maybe. The leather is stamped Accutron, and the clasp has the Accutron logo.

Avanti, new and modern


This is considered the REAL man's watch, and if you wear it you can understand why. It's solid, feels substantial. Works perfectly, new in the box, this particular Avanti is hard to find. It is not discolored, like it looks in the picture, but is perfectly stainless stainless steal.
