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.
