1 - The watch should not be used in the water! All diving watches, even recent, should be sent for a qualified water sealing service each year prior to diving season.
2 - Any props display that might appear in the pictures is not included in the sale.
Our watches are sold in working order unless otherwise stated in auction. We do check them out to make sure they are keeping time and running, however we do not service each and every watch and it is possible that servicing may be necessary at your expense. Servicing a vintage watch is highly recommended given that we don’t have service record in most cases. Please see our service level guild for more information.
Please bear in mind the age of these watches, in some cases 50-80 plus years old and due to the age of these watches we do not guarantee for water tightness whatsoever, even if it is marked waterproof on any watch we sell.
Remember that seeing the item at very high magnification, as in the pictures that I provide, brings to life small defects that the human eye does not perceive. That is why many people will like even more the watch after seeing it for real.

Buy it now or make your offer early and with confidence! This is the most effective way to avoid the disappointment of seeing the item go to someone else.
I do not guarantee time keeping on any of my vintage watches, even if the time keeping is perfect. Vintage (ie. very old) watches keep good time but do not expect the accuracy of a modern watch. Adjustments of some sort is generally the norm with vintage watches, specially after the stresses of shipping. Please understand this and keep this in mind, especially if you are new to handling vintage watches.

Recommendations for the owner of antiquarian watches:
All Antique watches are mechanical. Many repairs will not be cheap, as most likely they will require replacement of non-standard parts (unlike most late model watches).
? Antique watches should not be beaten or dropped - because repairs may be expensive.
? Antique watches are generally NOT waterproof. This is because waterproofing was not in general production until the middle of the 20th century for most watches. Therefore you should protect your antique watch from exposure to moisture.
? If your watch becomes wet it should be dried off quickly. Carefully open all covers and use a hair drier to blow dry the movement, dial, covers, crown. This will reduce the amount of rust.
? If your watch becomes wet with any kind of salt water you should immediately immerse or spray your watch with fresh (no-salt) water to remove all the salt from the works before drying the watch completely. Any salt left in the watch will combine with moisture in the air to rust metal components of the movement, case etc.
? Winding any mechanical watch tight may break the mainspring. If you can avoid it do not wind the watch hard.
? When adjusting the hands of your watch, move them in a clockwise direction only. Counter-clockwise adjustments may damage the movement.
? If you must adjust counter-clockwise make it for small adjustments only (i.e. for minutes, NOT hours).
? Be careful and gentle when adjusting the movement speed (faster or slower). Don't make sharp movements, and don't touch other components in the movement especially the pendulum mechanism.
? Every 2-3 years it is necessary to service and oil vintage watches.
? IF the watch is dirty - allow the watch to run down, don't wind it again until you have it serviced by a qualified watch repair expert. Dust will absorb and remove important lubricants and cause the movement pieces to wear down.
? To clean the case, dial and crystal you should use a cloth that does NOT leave fibers as these may get caught up in the movement. Check with your Watch repair expert to get an appropriate cloth.
? Keep your antiques watch away from magnets. Strong magnetic fields may affect the accuracy of your watch since some vintage watches were made with iron based components in the movement.
? Most Cases and Covers are fine components and will not handle abuse well. The watch should not be shaken, beaten, or stressed.
? Antique watches generally experience an error of up to 5-7 minutes a day. Any accuracy of +- 5 minutes is very good.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE BIDDING:
Vintage watches are very delicate and I package to the highest degree to prevent damage.
High altitude flights can be hard on watches due to extreme temperature changes. This can cause the oil viscosity to decrease (gum up) and prevent a watch from ticking (the balance moving freely etc.). It may need to be oiled when it arrives regardless of its recent servicing (if applicable). Although this is only a very slight possibility it can occasionally happen.
Please bear in mind that you are buying a used watch and it will require service at some point in time.
Have a Great Day & Enjoy Your Purchase!!!
