The Watch
You'll be forgiven if Hoga isn't the 1st name to pop into your head when you think of a Vintage Swiss Timepiece. One thing is for sure though this mesmerizing piece is likely to take your Wrist hostage.


This Hoga signed Vulcain features a Swiss Made Valjoux 7733 movement, which was fitted to many high end watches in the late 1960s/early 70s.


This Hoga is so damn freaking awesome and wears beautifully on the Wrist, the Surfboard Dial gives off a wonderful sporty feeling and it's taken all my resolve to offer this Dude up for sale.
