I have made many photos of the watch, including some closeup snapshots, just for fun. This lovely chronograph is fitted with one of my own premium calf leather strap in tan.
Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have. Extra : Try my Localtime Canvas straps! I have found them to be of a very good value and a great match especially for sport watches or chronograph watches that will combine well with this style of straps.
Their colour is black and they come in 4 sizes [18-20-22-24mm] and 7 colours of contrast stitching. Their length is approximately 100mm on the buckle end [including the steel buckle] and 120mm on the tail end ; so not short but not too long either. They are nicely padded, measuring 5mm thick at the lug end and they taper down to 3.50mm at the tail end. They have two keepers, one of them is fixed and the other one is floating. I have included many photos when you scroll down, so you can get a better idea of what you are ordering.
A good quality pair of spring bars is included with each strap. Here is my theory on vintage watches: as a purveyor of vintage watches, my effort is to always do only what is needed to the watch. I first inspect the watch, both visually (cosmetically) and then mechanically. If I judge that the watch is not yet in need of a full service then I do not put the watch through a service which, by the way, entails a lot of risks too.
Instead, I give it what I call my Spa treatment which will include a cleaning, changing of gaskets, oiling, lubricating and mechanical testing. If the plexi is heavily scratched or discoloured and it can not be cleaned, I change it.
If the crown is wrong or worn, I also change it. Now, if the watch is in need of a full service, then my professionally inspected description becomes professionally serviced. Important Note On Straps/Bracelets : The straps I use on my watches [leather, canvas, suede, rubber] are always brand new, unless otherwise mentioned and, in most cases, I also sell them separately in my store, in different colours and sizes. In the case of metal bracelets, if the watch is NOS, the bracelet is also unused.
If the watch is pre-owned with its original bracelet, then the bracelet is also pre-owned, unless otherwise mentioned. Either way, if in doubt, please ask. Extra: Try my Localtime Canvas straps! I was born and raised in Cyprus, a small island in the Eastern Mediterranean, now a member of the European Union.
My studies took me to Switzerland, the USA, Germany, and England. I did not, as you might think, study to become a watchmaker but rather a hotelier. As such, I spent most of my professional life as a hotel manager. Over time, I have actually come to understand that watch restoration and hospitality have a lot in common. In both instances, I have found myself taking care of people or products that were with me for a brief period of time.As a hotel manager, I was content at the end of a visitors stay in my hotel when they would give me a warm smile and an appreciative farewell. I love what I do and I take pride in doing it the best way possible in order to maintain the original integrity of each vintage timepiece. Id also be happy to hear from you if you would like to have a watch restored. Be it a family heirloom or one from your collection, my colleagues and I will do our best to return it to you healthier than when it got to us.
