新錶入手 Maurice Lacroix Les Mécaniques Réveil

 
This is a Maurice LaCroix Reveil alarm wrist watch in perfect condition, not one scratch or dind on it.
It has a 18K bezel, Gold push buttons with semiprecious stones, also the Gold crown has a semiprecious cabochon stone.
    
 
The AS1931 movement was only produced for a very short period (1970-1974).
This handwound movement is therefore very rare.  Some sources indicate that this movement was only produced in a very limited serie by ML.
    
 
One advertisement from 1994 it says that the watch is individually numbered, but no mention is being made for a limited production.
Once again ML did a fantastic job on the movement, and rename the AS 1931 to ML63.

THE CASE:
Is an elegant 3 piece (36 mm x 43 mm lug to lug, 12 mm thick), snap-back, round 18K heavy solid gold case and is in excellent condition. The solid gold back cover is hallmarked and signed on the inner side with the serial number (422066) on the outer side. The original crown and pushers are sharp and clean. The top pusher starts and stops the chronograph and the bottom one resets to zero. The acrylic crystal is clean and free of scratches.

THE DIAL:
Is a signed white-silver-tone dial with the original gold hands and applied gold hour numerals and indices and is in perfect condition. The dial has two sub dials or registers; the left is for the running seconds for the time and the right is the chronograph’s 45-minutes counter.

THE MOVEMENT:
Is a Swiss made, hand built, manual wind, rare Zenith caliber 143 movement (diameter 31.6mm, 14 lignes, BPH 18000) based on the Excelsior Park 4 caliber. The movement is signed and has the calibre marked on it. The watch has been recently cleaned and serviced (approx. a year ago but hasn’t been used often in that time); it runs well and keeps excellent time with all chronograph functions working perfectly.

拆錶裝錶成功

 
各位鄉親父老兄弟姊妹一定納悶我在這鄉下鳥地方每天都在幹嘛!
除了每日例行公事:睡覺、吃飯、聊天、發呆、唱歌、喝酒、罵人以外,林北這幾個月已經練就一身好功夫。
買了古董錶外,也買了很多壞掉的機械錶,經過三個月的書上演練,
今ㄦ個,選一個錶,全部拆開,再組起來,竟然可以動了,
據說這沒有三五年功夫是做不到的!知道我每天在幹嘛了吧。
 
P1020785
調色盤是我自己發明的分件盤,買瑞士的一個要三十歐,我去大潤發買的,好像2.5人民幣,硍。
 
P1020788
治具:最近幾個月很黑但是我始終覺得做事很不錯的模具部課長幫我多弄了四個洞,變成萬用的!應該要申請專利!

WHAT A RARE AND HOROLOGICAL WORK OF ART,REAL ART DECO, Antique  RED RUBY AND CRYSTAL STUDDED DIAL, PRODUCED IN THE 1930`S.
 
 95ea_3    9e76_3
 ROAMER WATCH CO STARTED PRODUCING HI GRADE POCKET WATCHES IN THE LATE 1880`S.THIS PIECE FROM THE LATE 1930`S WAS A STATEMENT THAT THIS SWISS CO.COULD PRODUCE A HIGH GRADE WRIST WATCH TO COMPETE WITH ITS AMERICAN COMPETITION .AND USED A COMPLACATED 17 JEWEL ROAMER  WATCH MOVEMENT.  
THE MOVEMENT HAD A COMPLETE SERVICE AND WAS TIMED BY A Professional WATCH REPAIRMAN WITH OVER 50 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE .
 
THIS GREAT PIECE FROM OUT OF THE PAST IS STUNNING IN ALL RESPECTS.
DISCREPTION:Crystal:  Excellent condition, CASE AND BEZEL10K R.G.(ROLLED GOLD) GREAT CONDITION DIAL OFF WHITE ORGINAL CONDITION DONT CLEAN IT, IT WOULD TAKE AWAY FROM THE VALUE.HANDS MINT, STEEL LID MINT.(NO ENGRAVINGS)MINT SWISS 17 JEWEL MOVEMENT.37mm LUG TO LUG and 22mm WIDE EXCLUDING THE CROWN.
SUITABLE FOR A BIG MENS WRIST.
 
OTHER THAN A FEW POCKET WATCHES ON THE WEB I HAVE ONLY FOUND ONE THAT WAS CLOSE TO THIS PIECE IN CONDITION AND AGE UP FOR BID A FEW YEARS AGO WHEN I WAS SEARCHING FOR 20`S30`s WRISTWATCHES.THE PIECE  WAS NOT IN THE  SHAPE THIS IS AND THE PRICE WAS OVER 600 US DOLLARS.BUT ON EBAY THE FINAL BID WILL STATE THE WORTH OF THIS GREAT TIME PIECE.
 
FINDING A PIECE WITH THE ROAMER WATCH CO NAME THATS STUNNING  AND RUNNING IS LIKE BUYING A 54 CORVETTE THAT A NICE OLD LADY HAS KEPT IN A GARAGE FOR OVER 50 YEARS AND WANTS TO SELL IT TO YOU FOR A FEW HUNDRED BUCKS. Like the Old 40`s 50`s cars most folks cant find time to care for these Ventage Ghosts that need care and attention and a loving home.
 
I just can’t say enough about this watch.  The GORGEOUS COMPLACATED  Watch is quite rare in my experience, sweet all 10KRG(ROLLED GOLD) CASE AND BEZEL, STUNNING ORGINAL DIAL and CLEAR POLISHED Crystal . Overall I rate this Vintage PIECE to be in GREAT Cosmetic and Excellent Running Condition. A Museum Class "Centerpiece" addition to any Collection to be sure.
.
Please remember that vintage watches have survived for many decades by being treated well. Vintage watches are not for wearing while doing yard work, working out, or swimming. They are a little more destructible than modern watches. Vintage watches also require periodic service and cleaning. Every 2/5 years, they would like their 20,000 mile checkup, oil change, and general service. By taking care of your vintage watch, you will have years of great service, and a quality heirloom to pass to another generation.AGAIN THIS PIECE IS FULLY SERVICED.
 
IF YOU WALKED INTO A SMALL SHOPPE THAT SOLD ONE OF A KIND ITEMS THIS PIECE WOULD HAVE A HUGE RETAIL PRICE TAG HUNG ON IT,BUT AGAIN ON EBAY YOU WILL BE THE JUDGE.
 HI END WATCHES LIKE THE OLD SWISS Piece, is a very sought after item for Watch Collectors all over the world. Minty winders and automatics Should Greatly Increase in value over the next few years because most pieces were used very hard, and for what they were made for, and not kept in a collectors vaults.mechanical movement: A movement powered by a mainspring, working in conjunction with a balance wheel. Most watches today have electronically controlled quartz movements and are powered by a battery.
 I WOULD INSURE THIS GREAT PIECE FOR NO LESS THAN 600.00 DOLLARS.BUT AGAIN THE LAST BID WILL STATE ITS WORTH.
Mechanical watches are currently enjoying a resurgence in popularity.
Just as video killed the radio stars, the quartz boom of the late 1960s and early 1970s nearly snuffed out the mechanical timepiece faster than you can say "Seiko." By substituting low-cost, digital technology for labor-intensive artisanship, the Japanese sent the Swiss horology industry into crisis mode. Yet while most of Geneva’s watch houses feverishly hitched their star to the digital bandwagon, Rolex stuck resolutely to its mechanical guns. By the time the dust had settled, more than half of Geneva’s watch manufacturers had gone under. Fully a third of the survivors, including such prestigious names as Omega, Longines, Blancpain, Tissot, Rado, and Hamilton, were subsumed into a publicly owned consortium to avoid bankruptcy. This fate won’t befall Rolex. Wilsdorf,  widower at his death, created a private trust run by a board of directors to insure the company would never be sold.

新錶入手 Girard-Perregaux (ca.1945)

 c733_1_b   c9de_1_b

In 1825, Constant Girard and his mother Numa, founded the watch manufacturing firm of Girard & Cie. in la Chaux-de-Fonds. Two years later, Constant Girard married Marie Perregaux, the daughter of a local watchmaker. In 1856, the name of the company was changed to Girard-Perregaux. Very technically minded and a perfectionist, he devised fine time-measurement instruments for his customers and design increasingly sophisticated, meticulously fashion movements. His years of experimentation culminated in the three bridges construction.

Its masterpiece quality was further attested by a variety of prices and distinctions, including a pair of Gold Medals at the Paris exhibitions of 1867 and 1889.

After Girard-Perregaux died, on June 18, 1903, his son Constant Girard-Gallet followed with great success .
