Title: Extremely Rare Abercrombie and Fitch Oval Pusher Steel Chronograph

Description: EXCELLENT condition.  Small size with a tight three piece steel case has not been buffed and is nearly new old stock. There are a few faint scuffs on the bezel and some tool mark scratches on the back but the edges are sharp and the original finish in place. You can see that it is signed with the store name which is rare for private label (dept. or jewelry store named) watches. Most are only signed on the dial or sometimes dial and movement. Few are triple signed (Tiffany is one). Gorgeous dial has been professionally refinished and is one of the nicest chrono dials I have seen. Oval pushers and signed Valjoux hand wound Swiss made shock protected chronograph movement. Runs great and has a nice Croc strap attached. Measures 33 mm wide (not including the crown) x 39 mm long x 12 mm thick. {1275} Item #5053 SOLD

Title: Wonderful Ladies YGF Acme Bracelet Watch Serviced

Description: EXCELLENT condition. Neat watch from the 1960's with a fancy and well made heavy gold plated bracelet and case. Large enough for about any wrist. The Swiss made hand wound movement works perfectly as it has been fully serviced, oiled and timed by our watchmaker. The pink dial has been professionally refinished/repainted. A real nice unusual piece of vintage jewelry with a gorgeous watch attached. Really good looking in person. Measures 18 mm wide (not including the crown) x 30 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$230} Item #5125 SOLD

Title: Nice Bulova Accutron, Circa 1967

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Got this watch a couple of weeks ago and put a new battery inside and watched it. It is keeping really good time so far which seems to be somewhat rare with old Accutron watches. They were the first battery or non-mechanical watches and used a tuning fork for accurate timekeeping. You can hear it humming in a high pitch if you hold it up to your ear. This is a Caliber 214, commonly called a back set as the setting mechanism is on the back. See what the movements look like by clicking on this example of a Bulova Spaceview Accutron. which is a see through version we've sold in the past. No crown. Perfect original gold dial. Lightly scuffed and nicked middle body. Measures 34 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 13.5 mm thick. {$169} Item #5756 SOLD

Title: Bulova Spaceview Accutron Circa 1964

Description: VERYGOOD condition. From the original owner, not a watch collector or dealer. I have not checked the case number but I believe that this is an original spaceview, not a conversion. It runs great and has light wear including some scuffs on the original spaceview crystal. Bulova Accutron watches were the first electric or battery operated time pieces, along with the Hamilton electric and they were extremely expensive and unique in their day and still are. Using a tuning fork for the important part Bulova avoided timing problems caused by the traditional balance wheel which the Hamilton Electrics still used. Nice shape with average wear on the yellow gold filled case. This watch has a high pitched whine which is the fork. A new Hadley Roma strap is attached. Measures 34 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 12 mm thick. {$325} Item #5245 SOLD

Title: Bulova Spaceview Accutron in YGF Case

Description: EXCELLENT condition. Circa 1965. Steel back, reference 2387. Gold filled middle body. Spaceviews are Accutrons with no dial. So you can see the "works". Notice the functional tuning fork under the center  pinion? This one was most likely converted to a spaceview in its earlier days. Runs great and keeps good time. Bargain priced for a quick sale. Measures 35 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 12 mm thick. {$275} Item #5049 SOLD

Title: Wonderful Original Bulova Accutron Spaceview, Circa 1963

Description: VERYGOOD condition.  Rare original steel spaceview with new old stock steel Accutron bracelet. Some scuffs. Mint original see through dial. These early battery watches used a tuning fork to regulate the frequency and time. You can hear them humming when put to your ear at a high pitched tuning fork tone. Model 214's are back set like this one and any good 214 movement will work for parts if ever needed. A new battery has been installed. Measures 35 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 13 mm thick. {$350} Reduced by $100 Item #4999 SOLD

Title: Nice Charcoal Dial Bulova Accutron

Description: GOOD condition. Nice vintage watch in a yellow gold plated 218 case. 218's have the crown on the side instead of the back like 214's. This is one of the last tuning fork movements made, circa 1974. Very fun watch to wear and show to non watch friends. Hums at a high pitch. This one came from a watchmaker's collection and keeps good time. I've added a nice new black leather strap. Measures 35.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$115} Item #5392 SOLD

Title: Wonderful Hard to Find Bulova Astronaut w/Bracelet

Description: VERYGOOD condition. It takes awhile to find these with accurate timekeeping abilities but we have and this watch has been checked out completely by our watchmaker and keeps superb time. I have been checking it now for over a month. Near perfect original aged black dial. Excellent steel case only has some minor scuffs and dates from 1965. Bracelet looks original and is signed but the end pieces don't look like a perfect fit to me so it is possible they or parts of the bracelet have been put together although this is just how we found it. These watches are selling for $900 and up on the vintage market place. Measures 38 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 13 mm thick. {$525} Item #4928 SOLD

Title: Wonderful 1968 Stainless Steel Bulova Accutron

Description: EXCELLENT condition. Most dealers would call this nearmint. It is just really nice with the finest 214 original dial have have seen in some time. It is silvered with superb original minute track and tiny lightly aged lum dots. The hands are original too with matching, lightly aged luminescent material. My watchmaker Wayne has gone through this watch and I purchased it only because it keeps excellent time (generally I avoid Accutrons). After two weeks I have seen no error or discrepancy from our atomic clocks. Less than one second a day from what I can see. Bulova Accutron watches were one of the very first battery watches made and the method used is tiny coils, a transistor and a steel tuning fork which vibrates at a consistent rate. All steel with a new battery installed. This watch is set on the back (Caliber 214). Very attractive timepiece from the 1960's in superb condition! A brand new Hadley Roma 881 oil tan strap with a stainless steel buckle is attached. Measures 35 mm wide (not including the crown) x 39 mm long x 13 mm thick. {$260} Item #5375 SOLD

Title: Large Solid Gold Bulova Accutron AS FOUND

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Nice watch, very large circa 1968. Beautiful original dial and hands. Both mint, dial and hands. Signed gold crown. Needs some adjustment, service or repair as our watchmaker does not work on Accutrons much but has installed new batteries. It runs great, just real fast. This is the original box and the watch hails from the son of the original owner. Measures 35.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 42 mm long x 12 mm thick. {$299} Item #4809 SOLD

Title: New Old Stock Stainless Steel Bulova Accutron Astronaut w/Box and Signed Bracelet

Description: What a beautiful piece. Made in 1968. It does not appear to have ever been sold or worn. A few very small nicks on the back from a little shop wear. The original Accutron bracelet is stainless steel and quite unique. I have some close-ups of it on the "back page". Click on the image to the left. Original inner and outer box. A battery comes with it.  Measures 38 mm wide (not including the crown) x 38 mm long x 13 mm thick. $575 $475 Item #2337 SOLD LS

Title: Vietnam (Camranh Bay) Bulova Accutron Astronaut w/Bracelet, 2 Boxes and All Papers!

Description: A fine collectible with fantastic provenance. Dated 1968 (M8 date code on back) and purchased in Feb. of 1970 by a Captain Lowell. P. Little Jr. in the PX at Camranh,  Vietnam.  Solid steel case in 95% plus condition. Excellent solid steel link Accutron bracelet which is tapered toward the clasp. All papers, warranties, instruction booklets and manuals are included. Inner and outer boxes. Hack set 214 (back set) tuning fork movement works great. Battery hatch opening tool. Mint original dial. Near mint early bakelite type bezel which rotates for a second time zone. A wonderful watch with this kind of original material! It measures 38 mm wide x 40 mm long x 14 mm thick.  {$675} Item #3357 SOLD BI

Title: Cool "Bow Tie" Bulova Accutron in Steel

Description: EXCELLENT condition. Absolutely one of the most attractive Accutrons I have seen with this extra nice (refinished) white dial, Roman numerals and unusual extra clean steel case. Regulated by the watchmaker and given a new battery. Keeps decent time for a 35 year old tuning fork watch. Signed crown. Measures 36 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$149} Item #3696 SOLD TO QY

Title: Bulova Accutron Spaceview

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Gold filled top with a steel back. Nice piece with hard to find signed gold filled Accutron bracelet. Runs fine and has a new Accucell battery. Probably a conversion as this was often done at the jewelers (Bulova watch store) with the correct conversion Accutron crystal. These watches (Accutrons) have high pitched tuning forks, seen at the six in this skelitonized "Spaceview". Measures 35 mm wide (not including the crown) x 41 mm long x 14 mm thick. {$399} {$329} Item #4482 SOLD

Title: Nice Steel 1976 Bulova Railroad Approved Accutron

Description:  A very slick collectors piece in excellent condition. Tuning fork movement (218/crown on side) runs like a champ and the case condition is almost mint from original. What I mean is that it has never been buffed or even worn much from what I can see. One long scratch on the back and a ding on the edge of the signed crown. All original finish. Original slightly used black Accutron signed leather strap. No signed buckle.  Measures 34.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$275} Item #SF04 SOLD JD

Title: Super Cool Green Dial Bulova "214" Accutron

Description: EXCELLENT condition. I believe that the little white dots or spots on this dark green dial are some form of age but they are so evenly spaced out that the dial appears to be made this way and resembles a Longines "Galaxy" type dial, to my eye. I like it. It looks pretty nice  with the white hands and crown free design. This is a back set or 214 caliber tuning fork battery operated timepiece made in 1970. The steel case is in nice condition with some scuffs here and here and the watch is keeping good time. Measures 36 mm wide (not including the crown) x 42 mm long x 12 mm thick. {$149} Item #3797 SOLD TO TG

Title: Nice Steel 1966 Bulova Railroad Approved Accutron

Description: EXCELLENT condition. A very slick collectors piece in excellent condition. Tuning fork movement (214/crown to set is on the back of the watch) runs like a champ, keeping very good time and the case is in excellent condition also.  Desirable "Canadian" or 24hr dial is perfect. A brand new black leather strap is attached. Measures 35 mm wide (not including the crown) 41 mm long 13 mm thick. {$269} Item #4269 SOLD TO RT

Title: Railroad Approved Bulova Accutron, Circa 1976

Description: VERYGOOD condition. This is a good-looking affordable railroad approved time piece with a 10k rolled gold plated case and the rarer Canadian 24hr inner dial in red. It has normal scuffs from use and is dated to 1976 with the Bulova date code "N6" seen on the back. This is a hack set battery powered tuning fork movement and it is keeping good time (for an Accutron) showing half a minute or so slow per 24hr period. It has a date, which changes exactly at midnight. It is a "slow set" and so the hour hand must be moved past midnight to change. This type of Accutron is very collectible and rarely offered at this price by other dealers. Measures 34.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$229} Item #4170 SOLD GG

Title: Heavy Asymmetrical 14k Bulova Accutron

Description: NEARMINT condition. "Alpha" model is strikingly simple with its unique downward pointing case design. Solid yellow gold, model 214 or back set Accutron. Dated 1961/M1 on the back. A very early tuning fork watch in rare condition. A brand new Hadley Roma 835 Alligator Grain strap is attached. Measures 33 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x  mm thick. {$725} {$575} Item #3690 SOLD HS

Title: Beautiful Hard To Find Dr's "Pulsations" Accutron

Description: EXCELLENT condition. This is a really nice watch with a perfect original dial. The gold filled case has a steel back and is about 85% with scuffs here and there but the dial is 99% and really nice to look at. My favorite part about this "214" model is that it is keeping superb time. This early (1966) Doctor's timepiece has a fantastic look with it's symmetrical shape (the setting crown is on the back) and aesthetic rare dial. We have added a new Hadley Roma 835 gator tail strap and a new gold tone deployant clasp. Measures 35 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 13 mm thick. {$375} Item #3857 SOLD WJW

Title: Ladies Gold and Diamond Angelus

Description: NEARMINT condition. Made in the 50's or 60's this nice Swiss watch has 14 fairly large (for a ladies watch) clean white diamonds. These diamonds are more valuable than the rough cut you will find on older watches. Solid 14k gold and fully marked. Small bracelet which is about 6 and 1/4 inches long so a wrist of about 5 and 1/2 to 5 and 3/4 inches will fit. Measures 15 mm wide (not including the crown) x 17 mm long x 7 mm thick. {$425} Item #3661 SOLD BB

Title: Aquastar Regate Yachting Watch AS FOUND

Description: GOOD condition. From one of our customers and scuffed up pretty good along with some deep nicks on the backs and sides of the lugs. All steel with a Swiss made automatic shock protected chronograph movement which counts down 5 minutes with the red dots. This model might need a little TLC although it works fine and keeps time. The original silvered dial shows a bit of age around the indices. Signed crown. Back is individually serial numbered and Heuer sold this watch later with their name. A great value and good investment! Measures 38 mm wide (not including the crown) x 43 mm long x 15 mm thick. {$475} Item #5441 SOLD

Title: Extra Nice Thin Astorex 25 jewel Super Automatic AS FOUND

Description: EXCELLENT condition. Recently the property of a collector. I think that this is a really neat watch because it is so thin for an automatic. The ETA 2472 full rotor, shock protected, 25 ruby jewel, full rotor movement is only thick in the center where the rotor is attached, so the case designer kept the profile thin except for the middle where it goes up, kind of like a short, flat topped volcano. Steel back, gold plated main body, beautiful original silvered dial, old style quick set (move the hour hand past mid-night, back past nine and repeat), and makes a great back up for parts on the hard to find and extremely valuable Doxa Sharkhunter and Sub watches which use the same movement exactly. It takes a 19mm strap and the one on it is old, maybe even the original but it is genuine vintage alligator so you may have it and a new one,  up to $30 from our accessories page. Measures 34.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 10.5 mm thick in the center, 8 mm thick on the edge. {$269} Item #5780 SOLD

Title: European 25j Swiss Made Atomik Hercule Soccer Watch

Description: GOOD condition. Cool watch found in Europe and sold to the public there, not in North America. Steel back has a soccer player on it which is different and the main body is chrome plated and has nicks everywhere but no wear through to brass that I can see. Runs good and is a decent size. Old style quick set date works by moving the hour hand past midnight, back to nine and repeat. Signed crown. A new DeBeer Paris sport leather strap is included. Measures 35.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 12 mm thick. {$109} Item #5563 SOLD

Title: Sweet 25j Ball Official RR Standard Trainmaster, Ca. 1960's

Description: EXCELLENT condition. It is hard not to like a vintage time piece with a dial like this and all the attributes of modern automatic watches. The Ball movement (ETA 2632) has a full winding rotor, 25 jewels, Incabloc shock protection, hack setting with easy to see red second hand, springless double click wheel (Eterna patent), one piece screwless balance beating 21,600 times per hour and a long running reserve. I'm pretty sure that the modern ETA movement we all see in practically every watch made these days, cannot offer much more as far a functionality or technical innovations. Pristine mint plus original dial which many think is porcelain like the old pocket watch dials but in fact is just a really high grade glossy white and black paint. You just have to own a Ball Trainmaster before you can appreciate why they are so popular. All steel case was definitely used by the owner who also has his initials on the back RSB. So, even though we've lightly buffed the case the scuffs and nicks from original use are still evident. Wayne has gone through the movement checking it for problems, dirt and regulated it for accurate timekeeping. The crown is a modern replacement as is the crystal, both new. Wayne has also added new gaskets and noted the Ball signed case reference #842347. On a brand new Hadley Roma MS 882 padded Breitling style black leather strap. Measures 34.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 10.5 mm thick. {$479} Item #6027 SOLD

Title: SS Ball Official Standard Trainmaster Serviced

Description: VERYGOOD condition. This is a great bargain for someone who wants one of these watches but doesn't want to pay the usual $600 price. Perfect white dial with highly legible black Arabic numerals, black hands and a red second hand. The steel case is perfect on top with the original satin finish but does have some light pitting on the back. This is from the original owner who had caustic sweat. We see that often on tool watches as this was made to be worn by engineers, conductors and train masters while at work. It does not affect the water resistant integrity of the screw back case, just the aesthetics. The 25j Ball (base caliber ETA 2822) automatic movement has been fully serviced, oiled and timed by our watchmaker and comes with a one year service warranty. A new crystal and crown have also been installed. A brand new Hadley Roma black leather perforated sporting style strap with a steel buckle is included but you may choose something different if you want. Measures 34.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$449} Item #5571 {$389} SOLD

Title: Ball Trainmaster Official Standard Automatic

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Nice steel watch with a well made 25 jewel Swiss made movement, dust cover with iron ring for anti-magnetism and unusual mint 13-24 red, black and white dial. The watch runs great and keeps good time and still hacks like it should. Clear clean crystal. Seldom seen variation of a highly desirable railroad grade time piece. Known for its legibility. Priced slightly less than others seen here because the original finish has been buffed (the tops are born with a radial brushed look). Measures 34.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 41 mm long x 10.5 mm thick. {$649} Item #5545 SOLD

Title: Ball Official Railroad Standard Automatic Serviced

Description: VERYGOOD/EXCELLENT condition. These are beautiful watches with easily read white dials and large black Arabic numerals and a red second hand. Screw on backs keep the watch water and dust resistant and the 25j hack set automatic movement which has been fully serviced, oiled and timed by Wayne the watchmaker, also features a dust cover which has an anti-magnetic ring inside of it. A nice Hadley Roma self lined strap is attached with a HR buckle upgrade. Measures 34 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$575} Item #5572 SOLD

Title: Stainless Steel Ball Trainmaster Automatic

Description: EXCELLENT condition. A beautiful watch with a mint original dial, nearmint steel case and fantastic high grade 25 jewel automatic movement. These are known for perfect legibility with their bright white dials and contrasting black hands and Arabic numerals. Also, if you click on the image to the left you see a dust cover with a heavy iron ring attached to the inside. This was to counter magnetism. An anti-magnetic feature. These watches and other railroad approved watches were actually used by train masters just before the quartz revolution. A brand new smooth black leather strap is attached. Keeps good time and has been checked out by our watchmaker. Add $75 for a full service which comes with a one year warranty. Measures 34.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 41 mm long x 10.5 mm thick. {$695} Item #5539 SOLD

Title: Wonderful Ball Official Standard Rail Road Approved Serviced

Description: EXCELLENT condition. Almost nearmint and in fantastic condition overall. Mint plus white enamel dial with easy to read dark shiny black Arabic numerals. Dark black hands except the second hand which is red. Excellent steel screw back case does have some light scratches but nothing major. We have buffed it very lightly. These watches also include anti-magnetic dust covers which have iron rings to combat magnetism which is a problem with any mechanical watch when it is around electro magnetic machines (most of our popular machines create some kind of magnetic field). Original crown and superb 25 jewel full rotor Ball Watch Co. (base caliber ETA 2632) ball bearing movement which has been fully serviced, oiled and timed by our watchmaker and comes with a one year service warranty. Check it out. Click on the image to the left. When vintage watches are serviced over and over again we see "wash out" on the nickel plated case plates, bridges and rotor. This has no fading and has seen mild to little use in its life. A brand new sporty black leather Hadley Roma MS893 strap with red stitching to match the second hand and a thick sporty steel buckle is attached. Measures 34.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$595} Item #5283 SOLD

Title: New Old Stock Ball Railroad Wristwatch

Description: NEARMMINT/MINT condition. Very close to mint condition with some very faint scuffs on the polished sides. It doesn't appear to have ever been opened as there are no tool marks on the slotted screw on back. All steel in two parts, back and main body. Original mint crown which is easy to grip and mint acrylic crystal, mint original dial, mint original hands and mint 25 jewel Swiss made automatic movement. These watches have Ball Official Standard Trainmaster on the dial and were made for Engineers who need an accurate time keeper to avoid leaving the train station too early to too late. This model or RR grade watch hacks to aid in exact setting. That means that when you pull out the crown, the second hand stops. This feature if fairly rare in wristwatches and is mostly seen on military issue timepieces. It keeps excellent time and comes with a one year service warranty. A brand new $120 DeBeer Paris hand made matte finished genuine crocodile strap with a stainless steel buckle is attached. Measures 34.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$775} Item #5418 SOLD

Title: Nice YGF Round Ball Trainmaster Automatic

A brand new black Hadley Roma strap with a gold plated stainless steel buckle is attached. Measures 35 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$465} Item #5100 SOLD

Title: Hard to Find YGF Ball Official Railroad Standard

Description: VERYGOOD condition.  Fun to own and view with its easy to read white dial and black Arabic numerals. Previously buffed gold filled case is in good condition and was waterproof in its day. Hand wound Swiss made movement is running strong and keeping good time. Click on the image to the left for close-up photos. A brand new black leather strap with a gold plate over steel buckle is attached. A wee bit of paint is missing on the top of the dial. Not very noticeable with the naked eye. Notice the inner dust cover which also helps magnetism and the hack set, shock protected, 21 jewel adjusted movement. It is running great and keeping time. Measures 35 mm wide (not including the crown) x 43 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$425} Item #4963 SOLD

Title: Ball "Trainmaster" 25j Automatic Serviced

Description: GOOD condition. Hard to find 1960's Swiss made timepiece. Solid steel with a screw on back. The original painted dial with easy to read Arabic numerals in black does have a spot of discoloration between the 8 and 9. Adjusted to five positions and shock protected Ball movement (ETA 2821 base caliber) has been fully serviced, oiled and timed. A brand new black Hadley Roma oil tan strap with steel buckle is attached. Measures 34 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$475} Item #4763 SOLD

Title: Ball Official Standard "Trainmaster"

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Hard to find 1960's Swiss made timepiece. Solid stainless steel with a screw on back. Original painted dial with easy to read Arabic numerals in black. The black hour and minute hands stand out easily against the white dial. Red second hand is easy to see too. There is a bit of discoloration around the center pinion. Adjusted to five positions and shock protected Ball movement (ETA 2821 base caliber) has been fully serviced, oiled and timed by the previous owner who was a RR man working for the L and N railroad. He was a conductor at the time of his death according to his brother. His name is included along with a photocopy of the families letter if you like. A brand new black Hadley Roma oil tan strap with steel buckle is attached. Measures 34 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$525} Item #4605 SOLD

Title: Ball Official Standard

Description: NEARMINT condition. Stainless steel screw back case with a high grade Swiss movement. It is signed Ball and has 21 jewels. It runs great, keeping very good time and hacks. One of the most legible if not the most legible vintage timepieces on the market. A brand new Hadley Roma 881 oil tan strap with a matching stainless steel buckle is attached. Measures 35 mm wide (not including the crown) x 41 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$575} Item #4615 SOLD

Title: Outstanding Ball Official Standard Trainmaster

Description: NEARMINT condition. Almost new old stock with caveats. A watch may be considered new old stock and still have marks or scratches. How is this so? We look at several different factors other than the external appearance. This fine piece has not been buffed as evidenced by the original circular sand marks on the screw back. It has not been serviced as there are no service marks on the inside of the back. The movement is also pristine. We can see this (from a layman's view) by looking at the blue screws and other screws for burr marks and other signs of service. But, there are many small nicks and scuffs here and there on the case. Most are not highly noticeable and in fact, you can see them in the close-up photos by clicking on the small image to the left. The 25j Swiss automatic movement keeps good time and hacks as it should. A super cool Hirsch "sportline" black strap is included. Measures 35 mm wide (not including the crown) x 43 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$675} Item #4464 TRADED

Adjusted to five positions and shock protected 25 jewel Ball movement (ETA 2822 base caliber) runs good and has a beautiful clean nickel plated ball bearing full rotor movement (notice the antimagnetic dust cover). Inner and outer box included. Some spotting on box. A brand new black Hirsch strap with steel buckle is attached. Measures 34 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$575} Item #4438 SOLD

Title: Very Nice Looking Pink Benrus w/Matching Expansion Bracelet

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Great example of a well made affordable vintage pink tank style Benrus. Excellent pink gold filled case and original pink bracelet which is hard to find. Not signed but none of them ever were, expansion bracelets like this. Jewelers usually sold them or a strap along with the watch from their own inventory. A little bit of wear on it but they are rare in pink. Original dial and glass crystal. That is a black mark at around 5 and 6 and a lighter one around 12. The curved shadow on the left is from my photography dome camera hole and is seen in a lot of photos from the angle. From a local watchmakers estate here in Missouri. Runs great.

Title: Extra Nice Benrus Double Date Pointer w/Box

Description: EXCELLENT condition. These small or medium (for vintage) sized watches are a great start for collectors who wish to focus on "complications". Mechanical movements with additional functions, besides telling time, are more difficult to design and build. So much so, that one of the ultimate complications which we take for granted now, the automatic chronograph, was not even invented until the 1960's. See one of these in this example of a Heuer/Buren micro-rotor. Heuer Carrera. Anyway, this is a good AFFORDABLE place to start your collection. This Benrus is original with some superficial age on the two part gold plated and stainless steel (snap on back) case, super nice original two tone silvered and beige dial, clean working Benrus hand wound movement with quick set day of the month hand (push in crown) and day of the week at noon. A new DeBeer Paris 16 mm strap and a Benrus box from the shop which matches the era (about 1950) is also included. The box is missing the small red velvet insert. Measures 30.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 36 mm long x 11.5 mm thick. {$269} Item #5914 SOLD

A real nice extra thin Hadley Roma dark brown leather strap with a matching stainless steel buckle is attached. Add $75 for full service, oil and time which comes with a one year warranty. PS. Some might say "who is Benrus?" but they have had some real special watches over the last century including the Sky Chief, a rare chronograph, the Dial O Rama and an extra rare and fantastic military issue watch the Type I and Type II just to name a few. Measures 33.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 7 mm thick. {$289} Item #5588 SOLD

Description: EXCELLENT condition. I have never seen this model before. I doubt it is especially rare but it is pretty neat. One piece case is bowl shaped with no removable back. It is yellow gold filled and in great shape. The original dial has spots all over it but they really look cool. Looks just like the Longines "starry sky" dials. Original or period strap is perfect and the box too except it is missing the insert. All found together at an estate.

Learn about gold filled cases <HERE> Measures 23 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$135} Item #5017 SOLD

Title: Hard to Find 1950's Benrus Dial-o-Rama Serviced

Description: GOOD condition. This two part case has a water and dust proof steel main body and a chrome plated base metal bezel and lugs. That part of it is fairly worn as you can see in the photos. Click on the image to the left for close ups. These neat Swiss made watches have 17 jewel shock protected hand wound movements and were fairly inexpensive. Today the market has shown an appreciation for any Swiss watch with a unique perspective (digitals, world timers, gmts, chronographs, triple dates, moon phases and other complications). Tells time through hours, minutes and seconds in that order from top to bottom. Of course, the seconds "hand" is the gold star which turns as seconds elapse.

Description: EXCELLENT condition. This is not a watch you will ever see again. It was hand made by an American artisan from an original sterling silver Benrus timepiece. The pierced shield portion of this watch has been added expertly to the case. The jewelers' level of skill is incredible and I have been told that he refuses to attempt this design again. The labor involved rules out a second effort. Hand wound Swiss made Benrus signed movement and signed sterling silver case. Nice black Benrus dial. Measures 30 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 8 mm thick. {$425} Item #3820 SOLD DM

Title: Benrus Day Date w/Pointer

Description: EXCELLENT condition. These are very cool watches and still a super investment. Complicated timepieces are hard to find and usually much more expensive. The dial is extra nice and probably was refinished although most might assume it is original as it has "swiss" on the bottom and the text and fine detail were exceptionally well done. The outside day of the month section is a thicker cream kind of layer. The gold filled top is in great shape but does have faint scuffs. Excellent look overall and in perfect running condition and may have the original bracelet. The third hand with the red tipped pointer is quickly changed with a push of the crown. A nice new Hirsch water resistant leather strap can be added for a small fee. Measures 32 mm wide (not including the crown) x 38 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$199} Item #3888 SOLD CN

We rarely see solid gold wire lug watches in any condition and this is pretty sharp for the age. High grade Swiss made movement and special sideways design add value.

Title: New Old Stock Ernest Borel Chronometer

Description: NEARMINT condition. We see many Omega and Rolex chronometer grade watches (tested for exceptional timekeeping standards in Switzerland) but other brands have been hard to find for some time now.

Borel (ETA base caliber) full rotor automatic movement. Also comes with its original strap, signed buckle and box. Rare as a chronometer and rare in this condition.

Title: Very Cool E. Borel and Co. w/Awesome Dial

Description: VERYGOOD condition. I think this old timekeeper is 1940s or so. We don't see them very often with center seconds or in this nice condition. Original gray dial did not photograph easily or well and looks really nice in person. It is perfect really and I enjoy just staring at it from time to time. The large (for the era) three piece case is chrome plated with a steel back. It too is almost perfect. The cool hand wound Swiss movement shows a bit more age but runs great and has a unique hand engraving on it. Probably from a retailer who sold these watches at their store.

Title: Nice Ladies E. Borel Cocktail Watch

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Only rated very good because of some scratches on the crown side of the gold plated body of the watch and one spot on the lug over the 12. While writing this description I had to get my loupe to actually see much of this damage as the photos make them appear much more prominent than they are. In other words, this is hardly or barely visible to the naked eye. Completely gone through by our watchmaker and regulated to keep time. This is a hand wound Swiss time piece from about 30 years ago. It has the rare sparkle dial and crystal in addition to the usual kaleidoscope effect and display back which shows the movement. Original signed crown and brand new white leather strap. It measures 25.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 32.5 mm long x 9 mm thick. {$199} Item #5475 SOLD

Title: Interesting Red Dialed E. Borel Ladies Cocktail Watch Serviced

Description: NEARMINT condition. Ernest Borel cocktail watches are one of our best sellers because of the high grade Swiss movement which can be seen through the back crystal and also because of the neat kaleidoscope dial on the front. These have gold plated bodies in three parts (a middle body and two snap on bezels) and unusual plastic disks over the dial which make the dazzling effect. This nice watch is at least 30 years old but not sure exactly as this model was extremely popular and sold from the 1950's through the 1980's. We have fully serviced, oiled and timed the gorgeous movement and installed a new white strap and I've purchased some colorful additions, one of which is also included.

Title: Fine Vintage Beaded Bezel Breitling Navitimer, Ref. 806 AOPA Logo

Description: NEARMINT condition. Believe it or not, this watch came from a little old lady in Pasadena. She brought it into the shop of a watchmaker friend a few years ago. He wore it for awhile then sold it. What is special about it besides the provenance I've just mentioned, is the condition. You may or may not know but many dealers call buffed or refurbished watches nearmint. Once a watch, steel or gold has been buffed, its original finish is lost forever. That is one reason this fine Patek Philippe, click here....sold for such a high price. Never buffed. Same here. Never ever buffed. There are numerous micro fine scuffs, some light scratches and a few tiny nicks. Most are visible only upon close examination but the polished lug tops show these scuffs the clearest. The rare beaded bezel rotates, and is in perfect condition. Steel snap on back is marked 972431 (circa 1963) on the inside, for collector reference. 806 on the outside of the back is the model number. As you can clearly see in our photos, the AOPA dial matches the overall condition. With an old tool watch (used by pilots) of this type, finding a dial which looks almost new is very difficult. Some specs of dirt can be seen on the outside of the case in our close-up photos as I've not cleaned the external portion. A damp cloth will easily get it and I'll do that before shipment. But, you can also see just how little wear it has. Look at the shot between the lugs. All original. Nothing has been changed, exchanged or replaced. The acrylic crystal could even be the original as it is the correct thin slightly domed style which has no bevel. A crystal with a beveled edge (modern replacements sometimes have this) can interfere with reading of the outer rotating bezel. Comes on a brand new Hadley Roma 886 but also has a modern Breitling strap, well used and a Breitling steel buckle. Both were added by the watchmaker who purchased it from the lady. That is the original box also which may come as a surprise considering we all expect a square box these days. I will throw in a one year warranty on the perfect pink Breitling (Venus Caliber 178) hand wound movement and most of our customers already know this but when anyone who has purchased a watch from us needs help, we do it. Even if a long time has passed, after the sale. This large, rare and extra fine sport chronograph measures 40 mm wide (not including the crown) x 49 mm long x 12 mm thick. {$5000} Item #6080 SOLD

Title: Hard to Find Breitling Intruder Serviced

Description: VERYGOOD/EXCELLENT condition. The Intruder is the last model in the Pluton line which started in 1980 and was discontinued in 1999. Made for pilots and very popular with the military, this cool analog and LCD alarm chronograph watch has a rotating compass bezel with wind-rose inscriptions and an inner compass bearing ring which is inside and goes around the dial. It also does the alarm thing along with an hourly chime if you like, some timing/chrono functions, a 24hr time and 2nd time zone time. I believe this is all original, including the crown, slightly scuffed thick crystal, hands, dial and of course the case. I've added the signed Breitling steel buckle. Case reference #A51035-6142. The Breitling B-232 movement has been gone through by Wayne and brought up to snuff for every day wearing, including a new battery. The strap is a new high grade German waterproof sharkskin, not Breitling. Screw down crown. Reveil, seen under Chronographe on the bottom, means Alarm. These are very collectable and this is the best model for sure, as the 1980's versions were made of lower quality material and not as well designed. Considered a modern watch since it is only 10 years old this can be easily repaired and does not have some of the same problems that earlier quartz watches may have. Measures 42-ish mm wide (not including the crown) x 48 mm long x 12 mm thick. {$1079} Item #5880 SOLD

Title:  Rare Breitling Chronomat Chronograph Diver Serviced

Description: EXCELLENT condition. I've seen quite a few vintage Breitling chronographs but I've never seen one of these. It has a screw down crown and old rotating Bakelite divers bezel. It is in good condition although there is one or two cracks, not seen easily and some ageing. Large steel case is fully marked as you can see in the larger photos and is referenced #810, case #452780. That is a common ref. # but this model is not represented in any of my books, literature, sales records or old advertising. It has bee lightly polished and looks very nice. The dial is original with dark dark lum inside the chrome indices and hands. It has a telemeter, tachymeter and 60 second stop watch chapter in the inside, just outside of the indices. The Breitling signed hand wound chronograph movement has been fully serviced, oiled and timed by Wayne the watchmaker and functions perfectly. This particular model uses a Landeron ebauche and a full chronograph service is at least $225 these days. Comes with a one year service warranty and a brand new $200 Hadley Roma Gator strap. Measures 40 mm wide (not including the crown) x 48 mm long x 13xx mm thick. {$1675} Item #5738 SOLD

Title: Rare Stainless Steel Breitling Premier

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Rare three register vintage steel Breitling chronograph in great shape with an evenly aged original dial. Signed reference 787 plus some case numbers three piece snap back case and nice high grade movement (Venus Caliber 157) which is running fine and keeping very good time. Priced at an affordable level for such a collectable brand and vintage. Circa 1950-53 in my opinion (there is no sure way to date these like serial numbers). Could be late 40's I suppose. The crown looks like a replacement. Comes with a stunning Hadley Roma genuine Alligator MS824 dress strap and matching steel buckle. Measures 36 mm wide (not including the crown) x 44 mm long x 13 mm thick. {$1479} Item #5723 SOLD

Title: Rare Oversized 18k Pink Gold Breitling Chronograph

Description: VERYGOOD condition. We have had really nice pink gold Breitling chronographs before, seen here....or here.... and they have sold quickly too but they weren't this model. This one is extra large and with the original black dial. It does show some general evenly spread age plus two spots just left of the center pinion (where hands attach and over the 7). They have a spot of black paint on them which was a repair of sorts ages ago. Almost perfect pink fully signed snap back case. And the original hands do have some light corrosion. The typical Breitling (Landeron Caliber 39 Swiss made) chronograph movement is not signed on the chronograph bridge like usual so this piece may have been assigned for export somewhere in a southern or non-European country.  It is original to the case and dial. Measures 37.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 45 mm long x 13 mm thick. {$2695} {$2375} Item #4722 SOLD

Title: Gorgeous Early Breitling Quartz

Description: NEARMINT condition. I just like the look of this watch. Breitling's famous bezel is here but no chrono. A time only early (1980's or early 90's) Breitling quartz. Possibly the first "Colt" or a Colt although it is not marked. With quick set date of course. Superb condition. Signed steel buckle and newer non-original strap with slight wear. We can replace it with a nice new Hadley Roma if you like. 300 meter water resist with signed screw down crown. Measures 38 mm wide (not including the crown) x 44 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$469} Item #4708 SOLD

Title: Outstanding 18k Pink Gold Breitling Premier

Description: EXCELLENT/NEARMINT condition. Boy. These watches (vintage gold Breitling chronographs) have completely disappeared from the market. We used to buy and sell early snap backs like this and later screw back models with round pushers all the time. The prices were much lower two or three years ago too. It means that supply has shrunk, especially with nearmint examples. This qualifies. The original dial is almost perfect. It is just about a good as you can get for a 60 year old watch. The case is also in superb condition. One measure of wear is to look at the back where the watchmaker's knife blade is inserted. You are able to see in the close-up shots that it has little wear in that area. In addition, you can see that the original brushed finish on the sides is un-buffed and almost like new. The movement (Venus Caliber 175) also carries the same condition and runs to perfection with the chronograph hand setting to the 10th second perfectly. Three nice examples of this rare watch have been purchased from an astute collector. One has a nice black dial and may be available a bit later. Notice the large monogram on the back. Model 760 with case number 630973. These models are not thin or tin can like we call some typical gold chronos of this era. They are thick and heavy. Measures 35.4 mm wide (not including the crown) x 42 mm long x 12 mm thick. {$2395} Item #4234 SOLD TO JV

Title: 1968 Breitling "Top Time" Stainless Steel Chronograph

Description: VERYGOOD condition. This is the best looking vintage Breitling I have had since we sold a pink gold screw back "Premier" about 5 years ago. It has a perfect original dial, which really stands out with its black sub dials. Although we have not serviced it, the hand wound movement is very clean and keeps perfect time. I have been wearing this watch for a couple of months and it loses about a second a week. The snap back case is signed and is all steel with a dust cover over the movement. It has been buffed and shows some nicks and a little corrosion in some small spots. It carries a used Hirsch strap with a stainless steel deployant buckle. Please choose a nice Hadley Roma strap, except the exotics. Finally, this watch looks fantastic in person and really stands out on your wrist. Worn to the Orlando NAWCC show recently, I had no less than a dozen offers from collectors and dealers. Measures 38.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 48 mm long x 14 mm thick. {$1275} Item #3976 SOLD RM

Title: 18k Pink Gold Breitling Premier with Black Dial

Description: EXCELLENT condition. A rare and beautiful timepiece from the 1940's. The original black dial is almost perfect. It is just about a good as you can get for a 60 year old watch. The case is also in very very nice condition. One measure of wear is to look at the back where the watchmaker's knife blade is inserted. You are able to see in the close-up shots that it has little wear in that area. There are no dents, dings, scuffs, scratches or sign of wear what so ever. It has been buffed lightly by our watchmaker. The movement (Venus Caliber 175) is in good shape according to our watchmaker and the chronograph hand re-sets/stops to the 10th second perfectly. Purchased from an astute collector, vintage gold Breitling chronographs have just about completely disappeared from the market. Supply has shrunk, especially with extra nice examples.  This nice 18k pink gold watch is not thin or "tin can" like we call some typical gold chronos of this era. Measures 35.4 mm wide (not including the crown) x 42 mm long x 12 mm thick. {$2395} Item #4264 SOLD TO MW DOWN UNDER

Title: Very Rare British Broad Arrow One Button Artillery Chronograph

Description: EXCELLENT condition. Nearly one of a kind this type of chronograph was made specifically for pilots and other military timers like gunners who where able to determine the range of enemy artillery units. Factory modified with no hour or minute hand and Valjoux's special GHT hand wound chronograph movement featuring 17 jewels and 18,000 bph (beats per hour). According to Ziggy this type was issued to the British Army's Air Observation Post crews. The 1/5 signifies the ability to record timing intervals to one fifth of a second and although the TP is not completely understood most agree it means Temporary Pattern as most war time chronographs have a patt. #3139 style mark (pattern number). Superb shape with the original finish on the all steel case. Most military watches were made of chrome plated base metals to save resources making steel much rarer. Wire lugs ensured that the watch would not break free from your wrist. The painted metal dial is original and perfect except for some flaking down at the bottom.  A brand new Hadley Roma black cuff strap is attached. Measures 36.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 43 mm long x 14 mm thick. {$1075} Item #4723 SOLD

Title: Bucherer Chronometer Mechanic's Special

Description: GOOD condition. Gold plated middle body with a steel back. 1970's chronometer grade automatic. Stem is loose, movement holder/ring missing and needs service. Average condition. Measures 34 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$99} Item #7011 SOLD

Title: Good Looking Black/White Dialed Bucherer Chronograph

Description: VERYGOOD condition.  Well made high grade Swiss chronograph with an all steel case in real nice shape. Some nicks on the outside of the lugs and a little ding on the pusher at 2. Black and white dial is about 90% with light fading. It looks original to an untrained eye but I think it has been refinished, although very nicely done. The hand wound Landeron Caliber 248 movement is Swiss made, has 17 jewels, is shock protected and looks and runs fine. Overall a real nice watch. We have installed a brand new Hadley Roma black leather strap. Measures 36 mm wide (not including the crown) x 41 mm long x 14 mm thick. {$475} Item #5034 SOLD

Title: 1960's Ladies Bucherer Pendant Watch

Description: EXCELLENT condition. Neat watch with an inexpensive steel chain which was not original. These little ball type watches are shaped more like a thick pod than a ball and usually hang from a stick pin thingy. Hand wound 17j Bucherer signed Swiss movement has two adjustments and runs great. The case material is white metal of some kind. Makes a unique gift. Measures 21 mm wide (not including the crown) x 17 mm thick. {$119} Item #4990 SOLD

Title: Beautiful Ladies Bucherer "Ball" Watch on Chain

Description: NEARMINT condition. Possibly as late as the 1960's this extra nice Swiss watch was made to be worn every day in a non traditional place, around the neck. The 17 jewel hand wound shock protected movement keeps excellent time. The chain is possibly more modern and it is not made of expensive material and I don't believe this watch is sterling either. Measures 21 mm wide (not including the crown). {$169} Item #4145 SOLD TO WHH

Title: Cool Bucherer Three Register Automatic Chronograph

Description: EXCELLENT condition. Neat watch from a decade or two ago. Unbuffed with some tool marks on the slotted screw back. Swiss made with a Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph movement.

Measures 33.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 14 mm thick. {$175}  {$125} SALE Item #4199 SOLD

Title: Big 14k Pink Gold Paul Buhre, Manufacture'

Description: EXCELLENT/NEARMINT condition. This is a real sweet timepiece and a little larger than most from this era. It measures a millimeter or two larger and feels bigger too because of the narrow bezel and large diameter pink dial (refinished). It has large beefy lugs and looks fantastic overall. The signed snap back covers a signed hand wound Swiss made movement and this case is also reinforced with metal to help beef up the watch which feels good in the hand and on the wrist. The firm "Manufacture des Montres Paul Buhre SA" opened a small shop in St. Petersburg Russia in 1815. Paul Leopold Buhre along with other Swiss watchmakers (Courvoiser and Cie and Tissot) was attracted to the area by Catherine II's efforts to start a watch and clock factory.  Buhre's main factory was located in Le Locle Switzerland. It expanded rapidly from its trade in Russia and by 1945 was touting 300 observatory prizes including Neuchatel and Breguet competitions. The firm continued through the 1970's with ads listing marine and wrist chronometers. If you think our price for this 14k pink gold watch is high, please check Farfo.com where a chrome plated model is listed at $399! A nice new Hadley Roma 835 Gator Tail style dark brown leather strap is included. Measures 34.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 42 mm long x 9 mm thick. {$445} Item #3825 SOLD WP

Title: Small SS Bulova Hand Wind w/Awesome Original Dial

Description: GOOD condition. Probably 1940's era with a fantastic, old refinished dial and original hands with light wear on the outer edges, not seen too easily with the naked eye. All steel but lots of nicks and dings on the bezel and a deep scratch near the crown which you can see in the close-up photos (click on the image to the left) but keeping good time and easy to wind with a large grip-able crown. I've installed a new old stock 1960's Gemex leather strap in short. It is unused and supple, not dried out or cracked like leather sometimes gets after decades. Perfect for a small wrist or a lady who likes to collect watches but doesn't want a huge clunker on her wrist. Measures 31 mm wide (not including the crown) x 38 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$79} Item #5728 SOLD

Title: Fantastic Bulova Oceanographer "M" 666 ft Snorkel w/Original Bracelet Serviced

Description: NEARMINT condition. This has been in my collection for some time now. I found it with the bracelet attached and have an old ad which shows this bracelet on this watch. The condition is pretty sweet although Wayne has buffed it. That isn't easy to do, if you want to put the correct finish back in place. The polished back, sides and lug tops remain as they were, while the outside portion of the back and the area outside the bezel have Wayne's satin finish re-applied, by hand. He really did a good job and spent a lot of time on it. The case wasn't scuffed up or scratched much but it really looks almost like new now. And the bracelet is same except Wayne didn't touch it. All brushed. It is also large enough for my 7 and 1/2 inch wrist which is rare for vintage watch bracelets. The Bulova 11BLACD automatic movement is in fine condition and has been fully serviced, oiled and timed by Wayne and carries a one year service warranty. The deep ocean blue original dial is to die for even though my pics didn't bring that feature out much. It is perfect as are the luminescent indices (tritium), the hands including the lum inside them and the Bakelite red and blue bezel. It does have some faint scuffs but no cracks which is what happens on many. Signed crown is not a screw down crown. Original thick beveled acrylic crystal with date window magnifier. Case number 2969. Dated M9 or 1969 on the back. PS one is able to use a strap instead of the bracelet and I'll take off some $ if you don't want it. The price may be a bit high for our items which usually sell fast but I love the watch and it took me a long time to find one in this condition. Measures 39 mm wide (not including the crown) x 45 mm long x 12 mm thick. {$475} Item #6017 SOLD

Title: Extra Nice Big SS/10k White Gold Bulova Oceanographer

Description: EXCELLENT condition. This is a really nice (probably closer to near mint) vintage watch made in the late 1960's when watches and watch movements were the best they have ever been. Few improvements have been made since. A quick set date is one as this only has the old style where you can change it by moving the hour hand past midnight, back to nine and repeat. The in house Bulova 11BLACD automatic movement which features automatic winding in both directions via a Breguet coupling device, visible through a triangular cutout in the rotor, a two spoke Glucydur balance with Nivarox hairspring, Kif Ultraflex shock resistance (a small spring protecting the balance staff) and has been checked out and gone through by Wayne. He has also buffed and polished the case and has done a real nice job returning the satin finish to the lug tops. He does this by hand, not on a buffing machine and it is near perfect as far as the way it looks compared to original. Original finish is nice on watches of this type (lower value) but not as important as high end rare stuff like Patek or even Omega and Rolex. The bezel is fluted and made of solid gold. The crown is signed and the original. It is large and easy to grip. The crystal is brand new and original crystals always had a date window magnifier. Would another dealer tell you that? Not in your lifetime. Again, in these price ranges, refurbished versus original is less important. I would argue even that well done refinish or refurbish work adds value, especially if the dial was ugly. We sent this in to the guys in Canada who are doing well so far but they did paint the chrome date window border black with the dial and the cost was double because of the nice lum in the indices. So, I've got almost $100 in the dial, $75 in refurbishing work and $20 in the new Hadley Roma black padded MS 882, oil tan strap. So, unless this watch fell off a truck somewhere, my price is about what I have in it. Also comes with my personal guarantee which is why we have so many customers. This is the largest version of the dress style Oceanographer with longer lugs and wider diameter. The overall appearance is superb! Great watch for the money! Measures 37 mm wide (not including the crown) x 46 mm long x 13 mm thick. {$369} Item #6031 SOLD

Title: Collectable Military Issue Steel Bulova A17A Hack Set

Description: EXCELLENT condition. Really wonderful military issued time pieces made in the early 1950's with slightly larger parkerized cases versus the WW II smaller polished steel or chrome plated models a decade earlier. Mint plus original dial and hands, original crown. Fully checked out and gone through by Wayne our watchmaker who has also regulated the movement and added a new acrylic crystal. The in-house Bulova 10BNCH hand wound movement is correctly hack setting so you can get perfect, on the second time setting. On a brand new Hadley Roma strap or the cool vintage gray nylon, you pick. Measures 32 mm wide (not including the crown) x 39 mm long x 12 mm thick. {$329} Item #6028 SOLD

Title: Unusual 14k Bulova Curved Wrist Watch Serviced

Title: Cool Pink Bulova w/Rare Pink Bracelet

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Wow! Lucky to find pink watches of any kind and real lucky with bracelets. This is a gentlemen's watch btw, not a ladies watch and the little pink gold filled bracelet will fit a large wrist with the extension out. Most likely, our wrists were much smaller 40 years ago. Would be great for a gal though or medium wristed man. Original dial is aged but looks better in person, much better. This style of Bulova dial is unique with the white Arabic's standing out nicely against the pink background. Wayne has checked this watch out and regulated it. Signed crown. Steel snap on back. The bracelet is an American made Speidel. Measures 31 mm wide (not including the crown) x 34 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$149} Item #5821 SOLD

Title:  Nice Large Bulova Oceanographer Snorkel Dive Watch

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Probably one of my favorite Bulova watches this large stainless steel diver has a nice original black dial with acrylic columns for markers which grab and hold light, a Bakelite bezel in excellent condition, funky large ss screw back case circa 1969 and new Hadley Roma Breitling style padded leather strap. Runs great and uses a high grade Swiss automatic. Signed crown. Acrylic crystal is probably original with the Cyclops magnifier on the underside.

Parkerized case is very nice. All military markings on screw back along with an over abundance of tool marks from an inexperienced owner. Acrylic crystal. Original crown. A brand new Hadley Roma 882 padded oil tan strap is included. Measures 32 mm wide (not including the crown) x 39 mm long x 12.5 mm thick. {$385} Item #5805 SOLD

Title: Stunning Near Mint Vintage Bulova Hand Wind Serviced

Description: NEARMINT condition. There are a few scuffs on the sides of the lugs but the yellow gold filled case has its original unbuffed finish. The steel back is dated 1950 with Bulova's date code. Beautifully engraved bezel and original signed crown. Also, the original thin glass crystal is still perfect. Mint original silvered dial is to die for. Gorgeous 17j Bulova Caliber 10BM keeps great time, was serviced by the previous owner and is made in America. A very striking vintage time piece. You can have the old Bulova box also which is from the era but not original to this watch. Probably had a smaller watch in it as the top doesn't close all the watch with this watch in it. It makes a nice presentation though and would be an excellent gift. Measures 25 mm wide (not including the crown) x 38 mm long x 9 mm thick. {$275} Item #5831 SOLD

Title: Vintage SS Bulova Oceanographer w/10k White Gold Bezel

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Sweet Swiss made time piece, circa 1971 with a high grade, fully automatic Bulova Caliber 11BLACD which has been checked out and gone through by our watchmaker Wayne. He has also put in new gaskets and a  new acrylic crystal. The dial is original, fairly unique and really nice with small tritium dots outside the attractive red makers and their color matches perfectly the beige lum in the hands. Our super close up photos (click on the image to the left) show corrosion but I cannot see it at all without a loupe. The large (for vintage) stainless steel case has nicks on each side but we have also buffed it a little so it looks pretty nice. Signed crown. Old style quick set date works by moving the hour hand past midnight, back to nine and repeat. A brand new Hadley Roma 886 in dark brown with white stitching is included. Measures 37 mm wide (not including the crown) x 45 mm long x 14 mm thick. {$289} Item #5343 SOLD

Title: Affordable Vintage Knotted Lug Bulova AS FOUND

Description: GOOD condition. A wonderful hand wound vintage mens watch circa 1953. Made in America with a gold filled, knotted lug main body and steel back which shows you the date (L3).

Runs great and a brand new Hadley Roma thin black leather dress strap with a gold plated over steel buckle is attached. The crown is original and signed. Measures 32 mm wide (not including the crown) x 36 mm long x 9 mm thick. {$119} Item #5717 SOLD

Title: Bulova Military Issue A17A Hack Second

Description: GOOD/VERYGOOD condition. Would grade higher but the refinished dial lowers it for me. Nice hands though which Wayne found in his cabinets of old stock. Parkerized steel case in nice shape with all the military nomenclature on the back. Korean War issue by the Air Force with a Bulova 17j Caliber 10BNCH hack set movement (still hacks). Hand wound with the original crown. Extremely water and dust resistant model with a screw on back.

Title: Nice Stainless Steel Rare American Made 23j Bulova Automatic

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Nice attractive watch from the 1950's with a cool sunburst style original black dial and in-house 23 jewel American made Bulova movement. I was previously only aware of the Eglin Caliber 760 and 761 American made automatics, seen here. But it says USA, not SWISS on the movement which is all the proof I need. Bulova had factories in both America and Switzerland and we know that hand wound movements were made here but I was not aware of the occasional automatic. American made automatic movements are scarce as hen's teeth and an area one can concentrate in without spending a fortune. The screw back steel case won't wear like the white gold filled model we see sometimes. Purchased from one of our watchmakers who has checked it out. Measures 31 mm wide (not including the crown) x 39 mm long x 12.5 mm thick. {$229} Item #5778 SOLD

Also included new seals which makes the waterproof crown a bit stiff. Extremely water and dust resistant model with a fully marked screw down back. It is all sealed up or I would show you the movement which is nice and clean and pretty. 100% original. A brand new Hadley Roma 882 padded oil tan strap is included.

Title: Black Dial, White Gold and Steel Bulova Oceanographer

Description: VERYGOOD condition. There is something about a black dial, especially when it is perfect like this one which can really cause infatuation. They have some kind of special character which is hard to capture in a photo. Contrasting nicely with colored indices like this Bulova and epitomized possibly by the best black dialed watch of all, seen here. Made with a good sized (for vintage) screw back steel case and 10k solid gold bezel, circa 1972 and keeping great time with it's high grade 17j in-house Caliber 11BLACD full rotor automatic movement.

Title: Very Nice Stainless Steel Bulova Astronaut, Circa 1965

Description: EXCELLENT condition.  Sweet watch. Perfect original black dial.

You can hear it humming in a pleasant high pitch if you put it to your ear. Very accurate and our watchmaker checked it out completely. It is keeping good time.

Title: Gorgeous Small Early Waterproof Bulova w/Sweet Dial Serviced

Description: GOOD condition. We have this graded as only "good" because there is a thin crack on the case between the lugs at six.

The Swiss made Bulova Caliber 10BCC hand wound movement has been fully serviced, oiled and timed and has also had a new mainspring installed. It runs great, keeping good time. Overall nearmint condition. Could be original or extra high quality re-finish on this dial. I took it as original at first but am unsure now.

Title: Rare Bulova One Button Chronograph

Description: VERYGOOD condition. These old watches (1940's) are very unique and rare. Unusual in that the chronograph only times for 60 seconds with no 30 minute or 12 hour counter.

Title: Long 21j Curved Bulova w/Black Dial

Title: Beautiful Extra Fine Bulova Duo-wind Automatic Tank

Description: NEARMINT condition. When was the last time you saw a large vintage automatic timepiece with a rectangular/tank shaped case? They did not make many as I don't believe that they took hold at the time. When we do see them the condition is usually poor. This fantastic large watch is nearly one of a kind. In point, as we should all know, the extra fine and nearmint vintage watches are purchased and held by the most astute collectors. They always increase in value exponentially.

Title: Hard to Find SS Bulova Wrist Alarm, Circa 1967 Serviced

Description: VERYGOOD/EXCELLENT condition. Despite nicks and scuffs on this thick steel case and one crown which is narfed up a bit, this is a great chance for a good deal on an attractive (mint original dial) functioning complicated Swiss timepiece. Alarms are still undervalued and steel is the best to collect, after gold. The signed crown at two winds and sets the watch. It also winds the alarm barrel. Turn clockwise to wind alarm, counter clockwise for the movement (mainspring). The crown at four sets the alarm hand and allows the ring when in the pulled out position. The Bulova Caliber 11AERC has been fully serviced, oiled and timed. A new off-brand lizard is attached but you may choose a nice new Hadley Roma if you like. Measures 34 mm wide (not including the crown) x 41 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$265} Item #4156  SOLD TO SS IN ISTANBUL

This is hard to see with a light hand polish as brass matches the gold filled case. Learn about gold filled cases <HERE>.  The original curved glass crystal is like new with one nearly invisible mark on the edge between the 3 and the 4. It is flush with the top/bezel of the watch. The crown is new and unsigned. Just massive in size. See photo of the way it covers my large 7 and 1/2 inch wrist. An extra long genuine lizard skin strap is included.

Title: Large 18k Pink Gold Chronographe Suisse Serviced

Description: VERYGOOD condition. This is a large solid gold 1940's Swiss two register chronograph with a thin four part pink gold case and awesome original dial. The Landeron Caliber 48 movement has been fully serviced, oiled and timed at some expense and has a one year service warranty. It is protected with a metal dust cover which also doubles as an anti-magnetic shield. Click on the image to the left for some large photos of the movement and rest of this watch. Priced a little higher than some in this genre because of condition, serviced movement, color and size. Way less than a thicker gold chrono which would be double or more easily. Like a Breitling Premier for instance. In the trade we call these types "tin can" chronos. Several dings are visible here and there and one on a lug side which is noticeable. Fantastic, near mint original dial is to die for and radiates a nice glow. On the outside there is a Tachymeter scale which can time speed in a mile. Then a Telemeter scale which times sound and then a 1-60 scale inside that. Just a pretty watch all over with a nice large size and tight Swiss movement. The 20 mm lug width uses female spring bars and we have a new pair installed along with a brand new Hadley Roma genuine crocodile MS822 brown strap. Measures 38 mm wide (not including the crown) x 4xx mm long x 1xx mm thick. {$775} Item #5757 SOLD

The red hand moves around the dial once per 24hrs or military time. It is not adjustable. Measures 43 mm wide (not including the crown) x 47 mm long x 13 mm thick. {$325} Item #4567 SOLD

Title: 23j Citizen "Bullhead" Automatic Chronograph

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Although the dial is somewhat aged on this cool chrono the steel case is really very nice showing little sign of age. No nicks or scuffs at all. Even the Citizen bracelet is in great shape and it is very large too fitting my 7 and 1/2 inch wrist with lots of slack. Unlike many vintage Seiko chronographs this watch will wind via the crown. The sub dial at three is a 30 minute counter while the dial at 9 counts up to 12 hours. The chronograph seconds hand is in the center and counts up to 60 seconds. It does miss coming straight up to zero by about half a second. It is not especially noticeable to the naked eye. A very cool watch in an unusual and collectible design. Measures 38 mm wide (not including the crown) x 43 mm long x 13 mm thick. {$239} Item #3761 SOLD

Title: Big 1960's Clebar Chronograph in Steel

It is bright and shiny, keeping very good time. A brand new Hadley Roma black leather strap with steel buckle is attached.

France written on bottom of original dial. 17 jewel automatic runs fine keeping good time with a non quick set day and date. A brand new dark brown Hadley Roma strap with a steel buckle is attached. Measures 33.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 38 mm long x 14 mm thick. {$265} Item #4834 SALE! {$175} SOLD

Title: Gorgeous Clinton Up/Down Chronograph

Description: GOOD condition.  Mesmerizing original silver, pink and cream dial with unusual up down chrono counters. The detail of the outside edge is amazing as three different gauges are arranged out there. The tachymeter or fine numbering in black from 400 to 60, clockwise is used to measure speed traveling one mile (try it from mile marker to marker on the highway, for instance if it takes you 55 seconds the hand will stop just left of 65 on the tachymeter which indicates that you averaged 65.5 mph in that mile). Next, in pink are the numerals 1 thru 12 (km) with the 12 near the top. This is a telemeter scale which is used to time distance related to sound. For instance to time the distance of a bolt of lightning from its furthest point, start the chronograph (button at 2) when you see it strike and stop it (same button) when you hear the thunder. Each division, 1-12 is 1 km with the miniscule marks between the numbers representing 100 meters. So, if you hear the thunder 7 seconds after the bolt the distance will read 2 (km) and 500 meters or just over a mile. Finally, a black 0-60 graduation is for simple minute timing. Normal seconds at 6 with a 30 minute counter at 12. The hand wound Venus (Swiss made) chronograph movement runs great but does have some wash-out (the nickel finish is faded from servicing), see close-up photos. The three piece case has a steel snap on back and chrome plated middle body and bezel. The middle body has lost its chrome. Flat pusher 1940's chronos are not very water or dust resistant. Measures 35.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 42 mm long x 12 mm thick. {$525} Item #4959 SALE! {$375} SOLD

Title: Fine 1960's Croton Aquamatic

Description: NEARMINT condition. Was new old stock with a missing crown and stem. Wayne has gone through the watch and checked for any problems.

Title: Small Steel Croton Aquamatic, Early Waterproof AS FOUND

Description: EXCELLENT condition. I can't sell this watch for nuthin'. What brought this on, you might say? Well, I have a lot of this type of watch from two decades of collecting and the fact is that they don't get much money, so I seldom list them. Way undervalued, probably because of size. Tank watches are small and they seem to sell fairly well but this is a much better watch. All steel, not gold filled like most tanks. Water and dust proof design and it is an automatic. Early (1940's) shock protected bumper wind. You can feel it bump up agin' its springs. Bought from an old watchmaker who previously serviced the watch. Fantastic unbuffed condition. Look at the back. Click on the image to the left for close-up photos. Nearmint original dial with most of the old lum (radium?) intact. Original hands. Acrylic crystal. The strap is a long gray pigskin, well worn but original. We will be happy to include a nice new strap at your request. Measures 31 mm wide (not including the crown) x 42 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$175} Item #5054 SOLD

Title: Diamond Encrusted 14k White Gold Ladies Croton

Description: NEARMINT condition. Croton is one of my favorite "underdogs" in the vintage watch collecting world. Highly undervalued with good early waterproof automatics in steel still available at bargain prices. Swiss made with a very nice looking Croton hand wound shock protected movement. Click on the image to the left for close-up photos. All original with just over one carat of diamonds according to a jeweler friend. He did say that the stones were modern cut opposed to mine cut and slightly above average quality. The diamonds are 18 really small ones in the solid 14k white gold bracelet plus 30 more on the large fancy lugged 14k white gold head. 18 single cuts at about .015 cts, 10 at .03, 2 at .08 and two large ones at about .15 -.20 cts. Fairly modern watch from the sixties or later in my opinion with a large bracelet, acrylic crystal and in nearly unworn condition. Keeps good time.

Title: New Old Stock Hand Wound Croton Gladiator

Description: NIB/PRISTINE MINT condition. It is so hard to find vintage watches which are still in new, unused condition. This particular watch is not one I have seen often either.

Title: Rare Early Cyma Swing Lug Chronometer  

Description: GOOD condition. Chronometer grade watches are one step above their counterparts in that the movement has been designed and regulated to keep a tight standard of accuracy in positions and temperatures. We are reminded that Rolex oyster watches are mostly all chronometers and Omega Constellations with "officially certified" on the dial but we don't often see chronometers by other makers or real early examples. Three part chrome plated case is cylinder or barrel shaped with straight sides and in good condition. The back is hinged. The dial is porcelain and double sunk with awesome black Arabic numerals plus an Arabic 13-24 outer track. It has one faint hairline crack from the center pinion up through the 12. Not even remotely visible to the naked eye and hard to see with my 10X loupe. Original hands. Crown may have been replaced in the 1950's. This watch has to be from the 1920's or earlier which makes it pretty unusual. Small but made for a man back then. Either sex could wear it now. We have a new open ended Hirsch strap attached but the lug width is thin so it looks more like a ladies watch. Measures 26 mm wide (not including the crown) x 33 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$329} Item #5974 SOLD

Title: Rare Early Chronometer Grade Cyma Swing Lug

When we think of chronometer grade watches we think of Rolex and Omega but many other companies had movements approved and they always made note of it in their advertisements and usually on the dial.

The original porcelain dial does have some hairlines but they are not highly visible unless you look close.

The crown is an old one which came with the watch but my guess is that it is a replacement. It is large and easy to grip. Some discoloration on the large blued hands. Easy to read Arabic numerals with 12 in red. Nickel case has a hinged snap on back with a press on bezel. Some small dings in the back. Some washout from many services/cleanings of the movement gives it a bit of a dull appearance.

Title: Large Heavy Steel WWW Broad Arrow Cyma

Description: NEARMINT condition. This awesome British MoD (Ministry of Defense) "broad arrow" WWW (Wrist Watch Waterproof) military issue time piece was completely serviced about a year ago by the previous owner. The dial is original and despite some fading it is in superb condition and has its original luminescent dots. The hands may be original or replacements but they are the correct shape and certainly have been (if original) refilled with new luminescent material. This design is known for heavy screw on waterproof back, anti-magnetic dust cover for the robust hand wound Swiss made Cyma movement, fixed spring bars and non-shattering acrylic crystals. Many manufacturers supplied www watches to the MoD but most were chrome plated cases with steel backs. Few, except the Cyma were made entirely of steel. The difference is dramatic. Chrome plated cases will not survive refurbishing or buffing of any kind and they have a much shorter lifespan. The slotted back is fully marked and perfect. This is a nickelled split 3/4 plate 15j movement with an uncut screw balance containing an overcoil hairspring. A Bond style Nato strap is attached. Measures 38.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 46 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$490} Item #4636 SOLD

Yellowish aged hands match perfectly and point with specific accuracy to the correct minute and even the fifth minute mark which is precisely detailed. This is a highly undervalued vintage brand. This watch is extremely interesting and attractive on the wrist and has a nice new 18mm Hadley Roma leather strap attached.

Title: Outstanding Over Large Heavy Steel WWW Broad Arrow Cyma Serviced

Description: NEARMINT condition. This awesome British MoD (Ministry of Defense) "broad arrow" WWW (Wrist Watch Waterproof) military issue time piece was completely refurbished by one of the many fine UK dealers, purchased by a customer of ours and traded to us. The dial is original and despite some fading it is in superb condition and has its original luminescent dots. The hands may be original or replacements but they are the correct shape and certainly have been (if original) refilled with new luminescent material. This design is known for heavy screw on waterproof back, anti-magnetic dust cover for the robust hand wound Swiss made Cyma movement, fixed spring bars and non-shattering acrylic crystals.

Title: Big Oversized Delbana Swiss Made Vintage Chronograph

Description: EXCELLENT condition. This attractive vintage piece has a two piece middle body with a snap on bezel. It is gold plated and there is a 5 mm section of the bezel with missing or worn off gold plating. It can be seen in the close-up photo. Click on the image to the left. The original dial is outstanding and in mint condition. It is a 30 minute chrono which means the big "second" hand counts 60 seconds while the subsidiary bit at three counts up to 30 minutes. The sub dial at 9 is the normal seconds counter which runs constantly. With a good loupe one can see no flaws or sign of age. The detail of the outside edge is amazing as three different gauges are arranged out there. The tachymeter or fine numbering in black from 1000 to 60, clockwise is used to measure speed traveling one mile (try it from mile marker to marker on the highway, for instance if it takes you 55 seconds the hand will stop just left of 65 on the tachymeter which indicates that you averaged 65.5 mph in that mile). Next, in red are the numerals 1 thru 20 (km) with the 20 at the top. This is a telemeter scale which is used to time distance related to sound. For instance to time the distance of a bolt of lightning from its furthest point, push the button at 2 when you see it strike and push the button at 4 to stop when you hear the thunder. Each division, 1-20 is 1km with the miniscule marks between the numbers representing 100 meters. So, if you hear the thunder 7 seconds after the bolt the distance will read 2 (km) and 500 meters or just over a mile. Finally, a black 0-60 graduation is for simple minute timing. The Swiss made Landeron Caliber 48 movement is in perfect running condition and keeps excellent time. A brand new Hadley Roma  835 Gator Tail brown leather strap with a 20 mm lug width is included. Measures 39 mm wide (not including the crown) x 46 mm long x 13 mm thick. {$345} Item #3715 SOLD CA

Title: WW II German Military Issue Dogma

Description: EXCELLENT condition. The case of this watch is really perfect with no damage or wear at all. It might have been reconditioned in the past. The dial is original and the hands are missing the luminescent material. The shock protected hand wound A. Schild Caliber 1130 hand wound movement is perfect, correct for the era and signed Dogma on the winding wheel. The screw on back of this watch has Stahlboden which means steel back and the correct D plus military serial number. D stands for Dienstuhr which means Servicewatch. Most German military watches have both the D and H for Heer which is German Army. Some speculate that the watches only marked with a D were for the Luftwaffe. It is unusual to find this type with only the D marking (ref. Ulric of England). It is attached to a nice new Bund strap. Measures 34.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 41 mm long x 13 mm thick. {$445} Item #4619 SOLD

Title: Sweet Black Dial Doxa 330T Sharkhunter Sub Serviced

Description: EXCELLENT condition. For about three years now our customers have been asking for Doxa Subs but the prices have gone up so fast it has been hard to find one in good condition for under a grand (at the wholesale level). So, testing the market with this extra fine example. The Doxa sub or shark hunter dive watch was popularized by Dirk Pitt adventure writer, Clive Cussler in his novels after he (Clive) was given his first Doxa diver in 1969. He had been working in a dive shop while finishing his first book and was moving on, thus presented with a going away gift. He then honored the watch by including it in his Dirk Pitt stories. Notable for super thick and heavy steel screw back cases, screw down crowns. luminescent tritium indices and a uni-directional diving table bezel this example is in fine condition with the original finish, dial and hands. It also keeps chronometer grade time having been timed on our timing machine and wound, set and worn in various positions and serviced by Jack at IWW while in the previous owners possession. Not signed by the US distributor US Divers Co. on the dial (see this model we sold three years ago) and with the metric version of the depth table bezel tells me this could have been a military watch or sold original in Europe. The sailboat insignia on the back dates to 1968 or earlier according to Doxa representatives. The strap is a generic rubber but you may choose any strap you like with a $50 credit towards that purchase (if over that amount). Measures 43 mm wide (not including the crown) x 45 mm long x 13 mm thick. {$1275} Item #5736 SOLD

Title: Early Extra Nice Small SS Waterproof Doxa

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Really great shape for a watch which is probably 60 years plus in age. All steel with clear unworn markings on the screw on back and the original finish/sand marks. Marked anti-magnetic and waterproof with stamped reference number between the holed lugs like Rolex does and nice clean edges although there are light scuffs. Nice original radium dial and original hands. Hand wound with an easy to grip crown. The acrylic crystal has bunches of little nicks which we should've buffed out before photography but we'll add a new crystal, or Wayne the watchmaker will for about $15 if you like. It will improve the aesthetics considerably. Priced quite low for any good vintage watch. Remember, all steel is much better than chrome plated models and harder to find in old watches. Doxa is a good Swiss brand also. Red center second is nice too. A brand new black DeBeer Paris sport leather strap is attached and matches well. This is also a good candidate for a smaller wrist or a lady collector. Measures 28.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 36 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$109} Item #5727 SOLD

Title: Beautiful New Old Stock Steel Formed Case Doxa Tank

Description: NEARMINT condition. Most dealers would certainly call this mint but although this watch was never sold it has been in a dealers case or two and does have some superficial scuffs. All original and striking to see in my opinion. This is a hand wound watch made in Switzerland during the 1930's. It is small (note the dimensions) but was made for a man even though either sex could wear this piece. Formed case watches from the 30's are rare as steel is difficult to work in this fashion. Don't overlook this piece as it's horological importance and rarity is significant. A beautiful French made black lizard strap is included. Measures 19.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 36 mm long x 9 mm thick. {$475} {$299} SALE Item #3775 SOLD TO GA

Title: Beautiful 14k Pink Gold Doxa Hand Wind

Probably late 1930's from the design. Fully signed 17 jewel Swiss made hand wound movement features an indirect center seconds and a two spoke screwed balance. According to the timing machine the watch shows little to no error. In other words, it keeps perfect time. The 14k pink gold screw back case is fully signed (Doxa) and hallmarked with gold content, made in Switzerland etc. It is in good condition with a small ding in the back but overall ranks about 85%.

Title: Large 21J Fancy Lug Elgin "Black Knight"

Description: EXCELLENT condition. Very large and very cool. Textured dial is very nice and original. The high grade Elgin Caliber 556 movement is keeping good time, has 21 jewels and has been completely gone over and regulated by our watchmaker. It is marked adjusted to temperatures and positions. American movements which are marked "adjusted" are similar to Swiss made chronometer grade movements in their finish and excellent timekeeping abilities. He has also installed a brand new acrylic crystal. The serial number dates this cool Batman style watch to the early 1950's. The yellow gold filled case has been lightly buffed but it does still show some faint nicks on the bezel, just over the cool stylized 12 and a scratch on that same lug.

Title: Nice 1944 Air Force Issue Elgin A-11 Serviced

Description: VERYGOOD/EXCELLENT condition. Really nice example of a WWII Elgin military time piece. Although the steel screw on back has been lightly buffed you can still see the Air Force mark, AF-44-43980 which tells us the issue date. The T movement serial number corresponds with 42 million and also correctly dates to 1944. This is a 16 jewel hack setting Elgin Caliber 539 and has been fully serviced, oiled and timed by Wayne our watchmaker and comes with a one year service warranty. Nice case although the chrome plated middle body shows some age. The original black dial has a few oil spots and the original painted hands are still in good shape. Air force specs called for painted hands during the war because they thought it was less likely paint would come off opposed to luminescent filled hands which could deteriorate and get into the movement, stopping it. A new lizard skin strap is attached. Measures 32.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$329} Item #5618 SOLD

Nice nearly new old stock strap from the 60's or 70's is in great shape but we can put a different strap on if you don't like this one. Keeps good time. Measures 32 mm wide (not including the crown) x 35 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$89} Item #5307 SOLD

Title: Affordable Elgin Golf Ball Digital

Description: GOOD/VERYGOOD condition. Very nice except for some wear on the backs of the lugs and some nicks on the case which did not come out with light buffing. We don't like to buff the dickens out of gold filled watches as you can be left with too thin a layer of gold. Learn about gold filled watch cases by clicking <HERE> Wayne, our watchmaker has gone through this unusual watch (Elgin Caliber #717) looking for any problems and regulated it for time keeping. The digital dials are in fine condition and they function perfectly which is the most important factor when buying one of these watches. A new Hadley Roma strap is attached. Measures 30 mm wide (not including the crown) x 37 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$475} Item #5776 SOLD

Title: Fancy 14k Yellow Gold Asymmetrical Lord Elgin Serviced

Title: Rare American Made 27j Elgin Automatic Mechanic's Special

Description:  This is the only wrist watch known to say American Made on the dial. It is one of two American automatics made. We get pretty good money for them in working condition. This watch does work but our watchmaker says it needs the rotor tightened or replaced. This movement (Caliber 761) features a Durapower mainspring and incorporates Elgin's patented Durabalance system which is a free-sprung balance. A free-sprung balance does not use the conventional regulator pins found in most mechanical movements. Instead, the spiral arms of the balance carry two weights, held in place by a spring (see a close-up photo by clicking on the image to the left). If the spring is moved, it will cause the weights to follow the spiral arms and move in towards the hub (loss of moment) or out towards the rim (gain). This is a much better system than the old style regulator. Patek Philippe uses a similar method in their Gyromax balance. No refunds on Mechanic's specials. Nice dial. Original unsigned crown. All steel construction with a screw back. Measures 34 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$115} Item #4628 SOLD

Title: Unique Elgin GMT w/World Time Bezel on Back

Description: VERYGOOD condition. This unusual Swiss made automatic timepiece was made in the 60's and has a unique and well made rotating bezel on the back for world times. Some of the color has worn off of it but in 15 years of collecting, buying and selling this is the only Eglin GMT World Timer that I have ever seen. Can't find another on the net either although I am sure Elgin made more than one. Runs fine and is in very good condition with no major signs of wear. The steel case (all of it) is almost nearmint. Never buffed but with faint scuffs. The GMT hand is fixed to 24hr time. In other words, if the bezel is set properly (put the dash between 24 and 1 at noon) you will read the  time as military. As seen the watch shows 10 am or 10 hundred plus 10. Moving the hands around by 12 hours to 10 pm would place the gmt hand at 22 hundred. Attached to a nice Bund style strap. Pick something else if it is not to your taste. Measures 37 mm wide (not including the crown) x 46 mm long x 12 mm thick. {$490} Item #4342 SOLD

Title: Elgin BW Raymond Hand Wound Wristwatch

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Gorgeous painted RR dial in mint condition. All original including the high grade shock protected 21 jewel Swiss made hand wound movement.

Two piece steel case is signed "cased and timed by Elgin National Watch Co, ref. 2685" and has a screw on back. It has been buffed with a nick on the top of the lug at 11. Measures 36 mm wide (not including the crown) x 41 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$475} Item #4962 SALE! {$325} SOLD

Title: Hard to Find 23j Lord Elgin with "American Made" on Dial

Description: EXCELLENT condition. 1960's, just before American watch companies ceased to exist. Simply gorgeous original dial with rare later subsidiary seconds (these were more common before the 1950's) dial with American Made printed on the bottom. Have you ever seen a watch with that on the dial? There were only a few Elgin models and they are very scarce. Gold filled body with a steel snap on back. One of America's finest hand wound movements (Caliber 730) which features shock protection, 6 adjustments (temperature and position) and 23 jewels. There is a ding on the edge of the case near the 10.  A brand new Hadley Roma black leather strap with a stainless steel buckle is attached. Measures 32 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 9 mm thick. {$199} Item #4683 SOLD

Title: Beautiful 14k 23j Lord Elgin Phillips 66 Award Watch Serviced

Description: EXCELLENT/NEARMINT condition. Sweet watch. Not found with this wonderful perfect dial very often. Some Phillips 66 watches are found now and then but rarely with a dial like this one has. I mean, when they are this mint it just grabs the eye. One small scratch on the side of the solid gold, snap back case. The presentation on the back is nicely done and is dated to 1958. The 23j American made Elgin Caliber 730 movement has many unique features and has been fully serviced, oiled and timed. A brand new black Hirsch strap is included. This watch is small measuring 29 mm wide (not including the crown) x 37 mm long x 9 mm thick. It was made for men although a woman could wear it because of the smaller size. {$219} Item #4360 SOLD

Title: Hard to Find Oversized Vintage Elgin "Sunburst" Wristwatch

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Very large timepiece for this type of old wristwatch. American made high grade hand wound movement with flared gold plated middle body and steel snap back. Runs fine.

Measures 29 mm wide (not including the crown) x 38 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$175} Item #4511 SOLD

Title: WW I Elgin Trench Watch

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Sweet old time piece from many years ago. Dating to 1917 (the year we declared war on Germany) this unusual small gentleman's wrist watch could have easily been a fighting mans watch. The long tube the crown fits over is slightly more water and dust resistant then short ones. The three part Nickel silver case is in decent shape, has a snap on back and bezel. Fits on the wrist like driver's watches from a later era, this type of watch might have been often worn on the inside of the wrist for more protection from crystal breakage or had a protective grill attached. As it was the original glass crystal has many scratches and clouds the view of the awesome original dial. The numerals could very well be radium and they are almost entirely intact. Original hands are also well preserved. The single sunk (subsidiary seconds bit) porcelain dial has a small brown spot or stain above the center pinion where the hands attach and one small hairline crack. The hand wound Elgin movement is American made and runs great with a 50 hour mainspring according to our watchmaker who checked this watch out for any problems. A brand new DeBeer Paris wire lug black leather strap is attached. Measures 31 mm wide (not including the crown) x 35 mm long x 9 mm thick. {$325} Item #4778 SOLD

Title: Beautiful 10k Solid Gold Lord Elgin 30 Jewel Automatic

Description: EXCELLENT condition. American made 30 jewel automatic (rare). The Elgin Caliber 760 has 6 adjustments and is known for several innovations It features a Durapower mainspring and incorporates Elgin's patented Durabalance system which is a free-sprung balance. A free-sprung balance does not use the conventional regulator pins or balance screws found in most mechanical movements. Instead, the spiral arms of the balance carry two weights, held in place by a spring (click here for a close up photo in another model we sold recently). If the spring is moved, it will cause the weights to follow the spiral arms and move in towards the hub (loss of moment) or out towards the rim (gain). This is a much better system than the old style regulator. Patek Philippe uses a similar method in their Gyromax balance. These rare movements also feature a two gear winding system, switching to a lower gear as the watch is more tightly wound. In addition, most jewels in watches past 23 are redundant or serve no purpose but the additional jewels in this movement are put to use in the innovative non-sprung bi-directional rotor. It is unique to the Caliber 760 and 761 along with several other patented proprietary inventions. Solid, fairly heavy slotted screw back construction but not too thick overall. Beautiful mint original dial, nearmint all original solid 10k gold case and has been gone through, cleaned up and checked out thoroughly by our watchmaker. A new Hadley Roma strap is included. Measures 33 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 9 mm thick. {$375} Item #4792 SOLD

Title: 14k Yellow Gold 23j Lord Elgin Phillips 66 Serviced

This watch is small measuring 29 mm wide (not including the crown) x 37 mm long x 9 mm thick. It was made for men although a woman could wear it because of the smaller size. {$219}  {$199} SALE Item #4359 SOLD

Runs great with its American made 23j hand wound movement and has a brand new DeBeer Paris brown leather strap with a gold plated buckle.

Description: Neat old timepiece with a base metal case, glass crystal with a crack in it and a very cool Roman numeral dial. Runs but could use a service.

Title: 14k Yellow Gold 21j Lord Elgin Tank

Title: Nice Long 14k Yellow Gold 23j Lord Elgin

Description: VERYGOOD condition. A little bit larger than the usual "tank" style but it is quite a bit later when men's arms were growing. By 1959-60 we were using shock protection on every movement so it is no surprise to see it on this style by now. The original dial is very nice with fewer noticeable flaws than appear in the close-up photos. Click on the image to the left for more. There is a nicely done engraving on the back. Two piece form watch with no major damage or wear. An acrylic crystal which is probably a replacement helps keep the American made Elgin Caliber 730 23j hand wound movement clean and dry.

Title: Unusual Rare Elgin Automatic "American Made" on Dial

Description: A very cool Elgin from a time when the company had little life left as an original American manufacturer. Switching to the dura-balance was unique and still is.  The Elgin 27 jewel, adjusted Caliber 761 automatic uses the patented Elgin Dura-balance system, a free-sprung balance. A free-sprung balance does not use the conventional regulator pins found in most mechanical movements. Instead, the spiral arms of the balance carry two weights, held in place by a spring. If the spring is moved, it will cause the weights to follow the spiral arms and move in towards the hub (loss of moment) or out towards the rim (gain). This is a much better system than the old style regulator. Patek Philippe uses a similar method in their Gyromax balance. Solid steel case with a water and dust proof design (screw back). Shock protected and anti-magnetic. Very cool original dial with "American Made" on the bottom. Honestly, I have seen these type dials only rarely and we handle about 1500 watches a year. Measures 34 mm wide (not including the signed crown) x 40 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$165} Item #3284 SOLD TD

Title: New Old Stock 21J Elgin "Black Knight"

Description: NEARMINT condition. We are calling this nearmint because it has not been sold to the public. It does have some signs of shop wear. It came from a dealer who had it with other vintage watches, unprotected superficially. In other words it has been jostled around a bit and has a few scuffs. One might ask how we know it is new old stock if it is not in mint condition. First, the inside of the back has no service marks and the movement shows no sign of ever having been serviced (no burr marks on screw heads for instance). Secondly the crystal is a rare pointed original, seldom ever seen. Thirdly, the dealer found them unsold at a shop and they came in a pair. What is best about new old stock and is often overlooked is the unused mint movement. A watch might be called mint at some sites but may have a well used movement and just have a nicely refurbished case and dial. New old stock watches have much greater value for historical reasons also. You know everything is original as with this cool crystal. Click on the image to the left for close-up photos. The high grade Elgin Caliber 680 movement is keeping good time according to our timing machine and shows less than 15 seconds error per 24hrs. It is marked adjusted to temperatures and positions. American movements which are marked "adjusted" are similar to Swiss made chronometer grade movements in their finish and excellent timekeeping abilities. A new high grade Hirsch strap is attached. Measures 27 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$289} Item #4151 SOLD JV

Title: Beautiful 14k White Gold Lady Elgin Circa 1922 Serviced

Description: NEARMINT condition. This outstanding old watch is very exciting for me for several reasons. It was an expensive piece back then, I am sure because of the high quality construction. It is very heavy for its size with lots of gold (it is not hollow on the inside like many solid gold watches) weighing 18 grams. And the engraving is hand done, not embossed or stamped. Also, the silk strap is entirely original including solid white gold attachments which are very rare to find in my experience. In addition this watch has its own movement dedicated for this style and is signed Lady Elgin. It has 15 jewels which was top grade at the time. It has been fully serviced, oiled and timed and runs perfectly showing little daily positional error. The dial is dark but original and fancy. It too is signed Elgin at the top. The crown is original. This was found in an old estate and has only had one owner, to my knowledge. Measures 24 mm wide (not including the crown) x 28 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$275} Item #3647 SOLD SH

Title: Unusual and Stunning 19j Pink Elgin w/Checkered Dial

Description: NEARMINT condition. One of the coolest vintage watches ever produced. I see them in yellow occasionally but not often in pink. This watch was found "put away" by a collector and had not been touched for many years. It had a dark patina which I partially wiped free while getting the watch ready for photography. This partial oxidation is what you see in the close-up photos, on the bezel. The case is pink gold filled, of course but the gold used to cover the case has alloys and those alloys will oxidize over time. This is also true for solid gold watches. The American made 19j movement keeps very good time and is in excellent condition. The dial is original. This is a real eye stopper. The strap in the photo is rather inexpensive. Please choose a Hadley Roma strap of your choice to accompany this piece. Measures 23 mm wide (not including the crown) x 37 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$285} Item #4163 SOLD MO

Title: Lord Elgin Digital or "Chevron"

Title: 1956 Military Issue Elgin A-17A

Description: EXCELLENT condition. Korean war issue with a nice thick shiny steel case. Probably buffed at one time as these watches typically have a "Parkerized" (a chemical process that helps the case resist corrosion) finish. Signed "Watch, Wrist, Second Setting, Navigation Hack" along with military ID numbers and AF-56 (1956) and "US Property". This has a hack set, hand wound movement and keeps near perfect time. The dial is original as are the hands. There is a dark black Elgin below the twelve and is the most perfect original A-17A dial I have ever seen. It is without flaw which is some achievement considering the age and common use of this war time watch. Military watches of this type with 13-24 on the inside of the dial are extremely collectable and prized by connoisseurs and collectors. The steel case is another highly prized virtue as many mil issue watches were chrome plated over base metal. The canvas strap is period which is also rare. It is in unused condition. Measures 32 mm wide (not including the crown) x 39 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$389} Item #4551 TRADED TO JC

The dial is original as are the hands. There is a dark black Elgin below the twelve and some dark black paint daubed on the dial near the center pinion to cover age, I suppose. It is old work. Military watches of this type with 13-24 on the inside of the dial are extremely collectable and prized by connoisseurs and collectors. The steel case is another highly prized virtue and many mil issue watches were chrome plated over base metal. A cool one piece canvas strap is included.

Title: Extra Nice Air force Elgin A-11 Military Issue

Description: EXCELLENT condition. What a beautiful near mint original case. It has a coin edge bezel which screws in place and a coin edge screw on back. It has all of the ordinance marks and dates which show 1945 (Ser. no. AF-45). The original dial is extra nice and would be near mint also except for a bit of paint missing on the edge near 4 and 5. It has luminescent (at the time) dots at each Arabic numeral and bright white painted hands. The hands are not hollow with luminescent material filled in but painted solid. Unlike the skeletal hands seen on Army watches the Air force thought this method might reduce the chance of crumbling particles falling through, getting into the movement.  The American made Caliber 539 has 16 jewels and hack sets for synchronization of the second hand with the co-pilot's watch or other service men. A nylon strap is attached. In addition, I believe the glass crystal is original. Measures 32 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$229} Item #4148 SOLD RS, NETHERLANDS

Title: Sweet Un-Issued Czech Military Eterna Serviced

Description: EXCELLENT condition. Although the dial is original on this cool old military Eterna, the numbers look like they have been re-lumed but several years ago, not recently. We have fully serviced, oiled and timed the in-house Eterna L-852S hand wound, anti-magnetic and shock protected movement and added new hands, crown, gaskets and the Bund strap. And it comes with a one year service warranty. As a result of the new gaskets, it is what I call a tight winder but very water and dust resistant. This a a late 1930's or early 1940's un-issued popular Czechoslovakian military wrist watch. Longines, Eterna and Lemania all made versions of this, some with no second hand, some with subsidiary seconds and some with center seconds. This is a center second version that has no second hand pinion or corresponding gear on the back plate. It is not uncommon to find this in old military watches as they had different applications. The watch wasn't broken, but instead sold or altered to be a no second watch. This watch sells for $1200 and up when all original and the Longines go for 2k and more. Just look on ebay which is a wholesale market for the most part. 22 mm lug width with traditional, not fixed spring bars. We've also shown it with a new thick Glycine leather strap and you can choose either, or both if you wish. The Bund is similar to what would have been issued with it or maybe long one piece canvas might have been on it. We can probably change the hands too if you don't like these. Measures 38 mm wide (not including the crown) x 48 mm long x 13 mm thick. {$529} Item #5724 SOLD

Title: Stainless Steel Eternamatic 3003

Description: VERYGOOD condition. In house ball bearing rotor 21j Eterna Caliber 1504 K is one of the latest models Eterna made probably dating to the early or even mid 1970's. All steel with a screw on slotted back showing some tool marks. Original acrylic crystal is signed with the Eterna ball bearing logo. Original crown has same logo. Original silvered dial is perfect or close. Quick set date mechanism is nice for collectors so you don't have to worry about rotating your wearing collection but not having the date correct or easy to set as most older vintage don't quick set. Keeps great time and has been checked out on our timing machine. A new DeBeers strap is attached. Measures 35 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 9 mm thick. {$269} Item #5631 SOLD

Title: Beautiful In-House Birks Eternamatic

Description: EXCELLENT condition. If you didn't know it, Eterna made its own movements, for the most part. Some of the later watches used ETA base calibers but ETA was a spin off of Eterna, Circa 1932. Known for several innovations including the first springless double click wheel, the world's smallest ladies automatic, beryllium click wheels, Eterna's U shock resistance and ball bearing monometallic rotors. This is a Caliber 1414UD full rotor shock protected movement which also features an 18,000 bph screwless Glucydur balance, Nivarox hairspring and a 44 hour power reserve. This watch is mid-1950's with a mint dial, nice gold plated or gold filled middle body and steel screw on back. All signed. Birks was a store from what I gather. Still an affordable genre. Measures 33.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$269} Item #5584 SOLD

Title: Affordable Vintage SS Eternamatic

Description: GOOD condition. Probably a little under graded at GOOD but these pics show the flaws to a greater extent than they appear to the naked eye while you are wearing it. Evenly aged original dial has lost most of its lum dots on the outside of the markers. Screw back and signed crown. Lots of nicks and dings but keeping good time. I need to photograph the in-house Eterna 1428-U automatic Swiss made movement as it looks real nice. Vintage watches are not waterproof usually including water resistant designs like this screw back automatic so don't swim in them or shower etc. A new Hadley Roma strap with a steel buckle is attached. A great brand and vintage watch for the money! The worst I can say about it is that some day it may need a service. Measures 33 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$145} Item #5726 SOLD

Title: Affordable GF Eternamatic

Description: GOOD condition. Great vintage watch for the money. Snap back and older refinished dial but overall pretty nice. I like the red second hand. It could be a replacement as it seems to me that Eterna would use a longer second hand. As found though and from one of our watchmakers. Runs good and has a nice Hadley Roma brown leather strap and a $30 single deployant gold plated buckle. Probably early to mid 1950's. Eterna is still an affordable collectable these days and noted for having invented the first ball bearing rotor. Measures 33.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 12.5 mm thick. {$155} Item #5777 SOLD

This is a Caliber 1455 U which has 21 jewels, a bi-directional ball bearing rotor, Glucydur screwless balance, Nivarox hairspring, patented Eterna U-shock resistance, 18,000 bph, 50 hour power reserve and fine regulator adjustment.

Average thickness is usually 20 micron and some cheap watches even use 10. It has one or two very faint scuffs on the 9 o'clock side. The original silvered dial is mint and gorgeous.

The full rotor Eterna Caliber 1414 UD movement is like new according to the watchmaker who checked it out for problems and features a ball bearing rotor which winds in both directions, Nivarox hairspring, a screwless Glucydur balance and Eterna's U-shock balance staff protection system/spring. It runs at 18,000 bph and has a 44 hour power reserve. He also regulated and timed the watch. The acrylic crystal is brand new. A hand made in the USA Hadley Roma brown leather strap with contrast stitching and a gold plated (over steel) buckle is attached. Measures 33 mm wide (not including the crown) x 41 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$319} Item #5324 SOLD

A brand new Hadley Roma oil tan strap with matching stainless steel buckle is attached. Measures 35 mm wide (not including the crown) x 41 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$275} Item #5259 SOLD

Title: Cool Gold and Steel Eternamatic w/Date

This is an automatic so the motion of the wrist is all that is needed to start and wind. Solid gold bezel and lug caps. Large easily gripped gold (maybe gold filled) crown. Unpolished by us and the gold bezel is kind of dull in the photos. A little bit of hand polish will really make it shine. Eterna's own in-house Caliber 1443 UC movement is in fantastic condition. It looks brand new. Check it out by clicking on the image to the left. The 1400 series is very similar to Eterna's 1200 series which was their first rotor auto.

Title: 14k White Gold Ladies Eternamatic "Golden Heart" Serviced

Description: EXCELLENT condition. Our extreme close-up shots make this watch look more aged than it is. Looking at it here while writing the description I have a hard time not calling it near mint. The screw back has light scuffs which are almost invisible as the watchmaker polished them away while servicing. Hard to find solid white gold ladies automatic watch with six bright white diamonds. Bargain priced at under $300! Spandex bracelet can be exchanged for a black cord style if you prefer. Fully serviced, oiled and timed and carrying the Eterna caliber 1497 high grade Swiss automatic.

Title: 14k Bumper Wind Eterna-matic, Circa 1941

The heavy case has been buffed and is hallmarked in two places. On the side and on the back of one lug. This movement has horological significance considering the following information. It was Eterna's first automatic movement and was developed in 1938. This watch dates to a few years later but is no later than the early 40's.

Title: Big Swiss Made Fortis Brainmatic Automatic Alarm

Description: GOOD condition. Large cushion shape with a very expensive A. Schild Swiss made automatic alarm movement. Automatic alarm watches are difficult to make and they sell for a grand or more in Omega or LeCoultre watches. Not too many other manufacturers even attempted it. Runs great and keeps good time but the day of the week is in Portuguese or some other language. The alarm sound is fairly quiet and has a pleasant tone. I believe most dealers would ask $200 more for this timepiece. Lots of nicks and scuffs but overall a sound watch with original dial, hands, case and movement. We have added an expensive Hadley Roma shark skin strap. Measures 41 mm wide (not including the crown) x 43 mm long x 14 mm thick. {$465} Item #4917 SALE! {$275} SOLD

Description: EXCELLENT condition. Wow! I love this watch. The beautiful white, blue and red dial is to die for with original black hands, all matching. Three piece stainless steel Swiss made snap back case is fully signed and hallmarked on a lug.  Rare Gallet signed chronograph movement is fully functional (Excelsior Park Cal. 40) and is in fine shape. It has been gone through by our watchmaker and runs like a champ. It is shock protected which means the watch is more robust and can absorb some rough treatment although this type of case is not water or dust resistant. Must see to appreciate. Good large size for the age and genre and absolutely a real eye catcher on the wrist. Literally looks like a new watch. A brand new genuine crocodile strap is attached. Measures 36.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 44 mm long x 12 mm thick. {$1375} Item #5156 SOLD

Title: Large Steel Three Register Gallet Chronograph

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Case design and size are a couple of added value design features for this early 1950's Gallet. It has a round pusher, screw back case which is more desirable than a flat pusher or snap back chrono. It is much more resistant to water and dust. In addition, at 38 mm's this is larger than many watches from this era, including chronographs. The dial is really nice and has been professionally refinished. The Gallet (Excelsior Park) movement has 17 jewels, is Swiss made and shock protected. It adds even more value and is in excellent condition. This is a fantastic piece for the money and would make any collector very happy. Measures 38 mm wide (not including the crown) x 45 mm long x 13 mm thick. {$875} {$775} Item #3922  SOLD TO PW

Gallet is one of the most popular vintage chronographs in the vintage market today. This flat pusher chrono has been fully serviced, oiled and timed (a $125 value/cost). A nice new Nato strap is included. Measures 34 mm wide (not including the crown) x 43 mm long x 13 mm thick. {$475} Item #3730 SOLD YK

Title: Interesting Earlier Stainless Steel Girard Perregaux Automatic AS FOUND

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Very cool dial exactly like a dial Rolex used at about the same time which was probably late 1940's, maybe 1950. It is original and has a very unusual two part style of construction with raised Arabic numerals on evens and applied silver? or gold leaf at the indices. I don't think the Arabic's are radium but just paint like modern watches have today, thicker so it sits pretty high. But they could be old radium (actually what we all refer to as radium is radium-activated zinc sulphide) numbers, not sure. The steel case is constructed in Switzerland in two parts with a slotted, screw on back. Signed as you can see in our close-up photos. Click on the image to the left. The movement is only marked 84-2327 which is a bit odd since I can't seem to find any GP Calibers 84 or 2327. Although they didn't start making their own design until later with the Gyromatic, this should be marked under the balance bridge (not the import code on the bridge). It is a hammer or bumper wind with Incabloc shock resistance spring on the screw balance. I might have to let Wayne look it over. Is running good but this price reflects that we have not checked it out professionally with Wayne for dirt or problems. Crown is later but large and easy to grip. On a brand new DeBeer Paris tan leather strap. Measures 34 mm wide (not including the crown) x 42 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$290} Item #6032 SOLD

Super thick case especially the cool logo'ed back. See close up photos by clicking on the image to the left. Extra crown rotates inner diving bezel. It is powered by a Girard Perregaux in-house 39 jewel high beat (36,000 bph or beats per hour) automatic movement which keeps excellent time and features a screwless Glucydur balance, ball bearing rotor winding in both directions using a patented Gyrotron switcher, self compensating flat hairspring, Incabloc shock resistance, fine regulation using a special pulley drive with side screw and a 40 hour power reserve (mainspring). The crystal is low profile and could be something a bit new from GP as close-up views show an unusual grain or pattern. It may have had a special anti glare coating or some kind of application. Some scratches, some nicks and some dings on the case. It has been buffed and the back has a faint GP inscription saying waterproof 20 atms, scratchproof crystal, stainless steel.

Super thick case especially the special deep diver back. See close up photos by clicking on the image to the left. Extra crown rotates diving bezel. Actual tool watch used by professional divers at the time. It is powered by a Girard Perregaux in-house 39 jewel high beat (36,000 bph or beats per hour) automatic movement which was recently serviced by the previous owner, keeps chronometer grade time (less than 4 seconds daily positional error) and features a screwless Glucydur balance, ball bearing rotor winding in both directions using a patented Gyrotron switcher, self compensating flat hairspring, Incabloc shock resistance, fine regulation using a special pulley drive with side screw and a 40 hour power reserve (mainspring). According to the service marks in the back this watch was cleaned 4 or 5 times, twice in the 80's, once in 02 and again recently. The crystal is low profile and could be something a bit new from GP as close-up views show an unusual grain or pattern. It may have had a special anti glare coating or some kind of application. Some scratches, some nicks and some dings on the case. It has been buffed some too and the back has a faint GP inscription saying waterproof 20 atms, scratchproof crystal, stainless steel. Fading on the dial indices and some overall age looks perfect and corresponds with the overall condition. A brand new 22 mm Hadley Roma black leather strap with a stainless steel buckle is attached.

Title: Beautiful 14k Gold Ladies Girard Perregaux Gyromatic Serviced

Description:  A fine ladies timepiece probably dating from the 1970's or even the 80's when automatic movements of this size were (and still are) very expensive and in my opinion a real phenomenon. How they packed so many small components into this case is simply amazing. Signed Girard Perregaux on the dial and 17j Girard Perregaux Gyromatic on the movement only the condition is 95% or better. Fully serviced, oiled and timed along with a light buff. Signed crown. Water and dust proof design. Sapphire crystal according to my watchmaker.

Title: Fantastic Girard Perregaux Gyromatic

Description: VERYGOOD condition. I love the old dial and hands on this mid-sized vintage Swiss watch. GP is one of the finest manufactures still in business. Screw back Swiss made and GP signed steel case is nice but does have a piece of steel stuck on the edge of the case around the two. Weird and I am not sure how it is there. Also there are scratches seen under a loop (on much of the watchcase) but extremely attractive on the wrist. High grade 17j GP signed automatic and shock protected movement keeps good time and is in excellent shape. The inside back shows one previous service mark. See our close-up photos by clicking on the image to the left.  Our most popular strap the Hadley Roma 881 oil tan, in black with a stainless steel buckle is attached. Measures 33 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$279} Item #4469 SOLD

Title: Beautiful 14k Gold Girard Perregaux Gyromatic

Description: A fantastic watch in EXCELLENT condition. I can only see one thing to remark upon considering the condition and it is a fairly light scratch one edge of the back. Some faint, buffed scuffs here and there. Heavy case with almost 20 grams of solid yellow gold. Waterproof design with a screw down back (steel ring). A stunning older refinished dial. Original hands are excellent and the luminescent material filling them match the luminescent dots. Probably refilled at time of dial refinish. Superb GP 17j automatic movement keeps great time. A nice new brown leather strap from the era/or repro is included.  It measures 34 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$419} Item #3565 SOLD WAP

Title: Beautiful Stainless Steel Girard Perregaux Gyromatic Serviced

Description: NEARMINT condition. Screw back (best for water and dust resistance), original mint dial and mint GP Caliber 21.904 high grade movement. The Caliber 21 is GP's most notable movement as it was entirely made in house. It has been fully serviced, oiled and timed. Vintage Girard Perregaux watches are still undervalued, especially with their Caliber 21 Gyromatic movements. If you want to beat the crowd and collect something which will probably go up in value fairly quickly, this specific area would be a great place to start. Steel is best, sometimes better than gold for stable prices as it does not wear easily. Condition like this is always rare. A brand new expensive Hirsch black leather strap with a matching steel buckle is attached. Measures 34 mm wide (not including the crown) x 42 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$349} Item #3702  SOLD TO RF

Title: Early Steel Girard Perregaux Gyromatic

Description: VERYGOOD condition. This is a very cool vintage piece from the 1940's. The one piece steel case is an early water and dust proof design where the movement must be removed through the front of the watch. My favorite part is the original aged dial. Even though the color has darkened, everything else about the dial is perfect. There are a lot of light scuffs on the case as we have not buffed it. The early GP bumper wind automatic movement is keeping good time. Measures 32 mm wide (not including the crown) x 40 mm long x 12 mm thick. {$269} Item #3773 SOLD GG

Title: Rare and Collectable Glycine Airman 24hr Vintage Watch

Description: VERYGOOD condition. This hard to find true 24hr time piece was often used by pilots and military men, especially in the Vietnam war. It has a unique hacking feature which is a thin wire that comes up through the dial between the 1 and 2 of 12. This wire stops the second hand so you can calibrate the time to atomic time or other wristwatches, for instance. Also has a 2nd hour hand which is opposite the hour hand and can show you 12 hour time. Finally, the second crown is a locking bezel device and it can make a third use of the extra hour hand for another time zone. For example, if it is noon here in the states and 6pm in London I would set the bezel at the smaller GMT hour hand at the 18 for 18 hundred hours/6pm and then all I need to do for London time is read the bezel where the GMT hand points. This model is one of the many vintage watches which has gone up in value quite a bit in the last 10 years. We sold this exact watch about 7 years ago, for about half, so the original owner is doing well reselling and making a nice profit. All steel with a screw on water proof back. Lots of scuffs, scratches and nicks mostly seen on the back, some on the middle body and lugs and a few on the bezel. Mostly not seen at all with the naked eye as the case has been lightly buffed. Real nice rotating bezel. Crowns are modern replacements. Runs great and remember, this watch only makes one revolution per 24hrs unlike normal time pieces which revolve twice each day. Measures 36 mm wide (not including the crown) x 46 mm long x 12 mm thick. {$1175} Item #5773 SOLD

Title: Marvelous Glycine Vacuum Serviced

Description: VERYGOOD condition. Made in the 1960's the Glycine Vacuum and Compressor series are one of my favorite vintage watches of all time. Their heavy steel cases are bowl shaped like Omega's Seamaster and very thick. Ditto for the glass crystal. This one does have some scratches in the middle but the overall appearance is very nice. The original tritium black dial just shines and has a gorgeous look with the aged beige lum dots and vertical white lines. You can see some missing paint at the 2 o'clock mark but it looks larger in these close up photos than in real life. The Glycine (ETA 2472) automatic movement has the old style quick set date and has been fully serviced, oiled and timed by our watchmaker. Move the hour hand past midnight, back to nine and repeat. Comes with a one year service warranty. Buffed with some nicks still visible, mostly seen on the lug tops and having an external case number of 26349. A brand new Hadley Roma MS 2000 American made dress strap is attached and we've added a new old stock steel Glycine bracelet. This watch looks outstanding in person and really shines with the glossy black dial and near perfect crystal. Measures 35 mm wide (not including the crown) x 39 mm long x 10.5 mm thick. {$339} Item #5560 SOLD

Title: Monster 18k Yellow Gold Glycine Vacuum II Serviced

Description: EXCELLENT condition. Rare watch according to Glycine. Only made in very small numbers (less than 50?) in 18k gold, this is the second series of Vacuum watches created by Glycine in the 1960's. This 1970 model has a heavy 18k yellow gold one piece bowl shaped case and weighs 58 grams without movement, dial, crystal etc. Total weight of the watch is over 2.5 ounces. With almost 2 ounces of 18k gold this case easily qualifies as the heaviest vintage gold wrist watch I have seen. The Glycine service center was astounded as they had yet to see one. Their evaluation was $4,000 to $5,000. The two solid 18k yellow gold crystal clamps hold the crystal in place and are affixed to the bezel by long screws which extend through the case into the space between the lugs. The Glycine crown incorporates a triple "O-ring" waterproof system. Brand new o-rings have been installed and consequently setting and winding is very stiff. Of course, the automatic movement runs easily without being wound at all. The thick beveled crystal is one of the first ever diamond edged sapphire crystals. It is perfect. The hands are extremely unique having the appearance of a two pronged (minute hand) and three pronged (hour hand ) fork. You can see through them. The Swiss made automatic Glycine high beat movement has been fully serviced, oiled and timed by Glycine's service center. The case has had all new gaskets and o-rings added and has been vacuum sealed professionally by the factory service center. The timing machine shows very little daily error in any position (dial up, dial down, crown up, crown down etc) averaging less than 10 seconds fast (this should work itself out as most watchmakers regulate the movement a bit fast to compensate for a "break-in" period). It features a screwless Glucydur balance, Nivarox hairspring, Incabloc shock resistance,  17 jewels and a 40 hour power reserve. A new black Hadley Roma 716 lizard grain strap is included. Measures 36 mm wide (not including the crown) x 36 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$1475} Item #4350 SOLD TO CR

Title: Vintage New Old Stock (1970)  Glycine Airman SST w/Original Wooden Box and SST Instruction Manual  Serviced

Description: PRISTINE MINT condition. Absolutely perfect original dial. Mint heavy steel waterproof case. The crown at two turns the inner bezel. The cross hatch crown at three is original. The crown at 2 is a Glycine crown and may be original but from my experience this crown was a smooth crown, without knurling. Note: further research indicates that Glycine did use cross hatch crowns in place of the smooth crown in later years. According to a Glycine representative when the watch got dirty the smooth crown could become stiff and difficult to turn. The hour hand of this watch makes one revolution per day. Military time. These Glycine Airmen' hack in a very unique way. There is a hole in the dial, right between the 2 and the 4 of 24 where a thin wire emerges when the crown is pulled out. This stops the second hand exactly at twelve for precise setting.  The high grade Swiss made 25 jewel Glycine movement (A. Schild base caliber 1903) features 21 jewels, a screwless Glucydur balance, Nivarox hairspring, Incabloc shock resistance, moveable hairspring block carrier, direct center seconds with hack and quick set date. It has been fully serviced, oiled and timed by Glycine. The wooden box is the original with matching serial numbers. The instruction manual is also the original SST manual with matching serial numbers. A nice new Glycine black leather strap with silver buckle is included.  {$1275} Item #4135 SOLD JB, NETHERLANDS

Title: 1960 Glycine Vacuum I Waterproof Automatic in 18K Gold Top and Steel Serviced

There is no removable back. Only the 18k gold bezel is removable and everything comes up through the front for service. The original mildly domed glass crystal is perfect and unique. It is flush with the bezel which means it is harder to scratch or break. The case condition is pretty nice but it has a nick on the bezel. The back says Air+Water+Condensationproof along with Swiss made, self winding and a Patent number. These watches are fairly rare and hard to find. They are somewhat important because of the early waterproof design and the overall eye appeal and "wear ability" if you will.

The hands are extremely unique having the appearance of a two pronged (minute hand) and three pronged (hour hand ) fork. You can see through them. The Swiss made automatic Glycine high beat movement has been fully serviced, oiled and timed. The timing machine shows very little daily error in any position (dial up, dial down, crown up, crown down etc) averaging less than 10 seconds fast (this should work itself out as most watchmakers regulate the movement a bit fast to compensate for a "break-in" period). It features a screwless Glucydur balance, Nivarox hairspring, Incabloc shock resistance,  23 jewels and a 40 hour power reserve. Measures 36 mm wide (not including the crown) x 36 mm long x 10 mm thick. $385 Item #3309

Title: Rare Marshall Field Glycine Vacuum I Waterproof Automatic in Steel Serviced

Description: Very cool,  EXCELLENT condition waterproof design which incorporates a highly water and dust resistant one piece heavy steel case. There is no removable back. Only the bezel is removable and the movement and dial come up through the front for service. The original mildly domed glass crystal is perfect and unique. It is flush with the bezel which means it is harder to scratch or break. The case condition is perfect on the front and sides but it has a few nicks on the back which says Air+Water+Condensationproof along with Swiss made, self winding and a Patent number. These watches are fairly rare and hard to find. They are somewhat important because of the early waterproof design and the overall eye appeal and "wear ability" if you will. Can be worn in any circumstance, dress or sport and is not small in size like many vintage pieces. I am particularly enamored with the dial which is mint, mint, mint and just looks better than I can even describe with words, no kidding, it is a stunner. Serviced at the factory. The watch features a screwless Glucydur balance, Nivarox hairspring, Incabloc shock resistance, 21 jewels and a 40 hour power reserve. A beautiful and unique genuine lizard skin strap is attached. Measures 35 mm wide (not including the crown) x 39 mm long x 10 mm thick. {$349} Item #3310 SOLD WAB

Title: Beautiful Hand Wound 18j Gubelin Dress Watch

Description: EXCELLENT/NEARMINT condition. This is a really great looking watch with a perfect gray dial. Although it says "swiss" on the bottom I think it was refinished some time recently. It is a really nice job. The indices are inlaid in gold and quite unusual. A solid gold bezel and a thin gold cap on the lugs with a steel snap back.  The 18j Gubelin signed movement is keeping very good time according to the timing machine and has been checked over and regulated by the watchmaker.

Title: Large 25j Stainless Steel Gubelin Ipso Matic Serviced

Description: VERYGOOD/EXCELLENT condition. Gubelin was established in Lucerne Switzerland in the year 1832 by Maurice Breitschmid. His daughter married Jacques Edouard Gubelin in 1854 and they opened a shop in town. By 1905 they had moved to the Palais anglais at No. 1, Schweizerhofquai in Lucerne and as of 1989 they were still listed at that address and still operated by a Gubelin and his son (Walter and Thomas Gubelin)! Edouard's son continued his father's success and in 1919 opened their first shop in New York City. They are known for associations with the best manufacture's in the world including Vacheron and Patek Philippe (1966 calendar watch). This Ipso-Matic was introduced in 1949 and was one of their most successful lines. This wonderful piece has a water and dust resistant design (screw back), a real nice looking two-tone original cream colored dial (some fading) and a high grade 25 jewel Swiss made (Felsa Caliber 690) automatic movement. It has been fully serviced, oiled and timed and also has a new crown. The strap is old so please choose a nice new Hadley Roma leather strap at our expense. Measures 35.5 mm wide (not including the crown) x 43 mm long x 11 mm thick. {$369} Item #3932 SOLD WAB
