An exquisite and classy SPORTEX Swiss [by Leonidas SA; pre-Heuer] chronograph watch, this rare 1940’s piece has been professionally inspected in-house here at Localtime.

It is absolutely 100% original, with no foreign parts, in excellent condition throughout and ready to proudly wear or join your collection. The 34mm [36mm counting centre crown] case is in excellent condition. The ‘big eyes’ dial, hands, telemeter and tachymeter scales, are a feast to the eyes. I have made many photos of the watch, including some closeup snapshots, just for fun. This lovely chronograph is fitted with a premium calf leather strap in black.

As with all the watches I handle in-house here at the Localtime Spa, the listed price includes a written 6-month written warrantee from the date of purchase. Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have.

EXTRA! Check out my own Localtime straps: Handmade from premium calf leather to my own specifications in Italy, they come in 5 sizes [lug width/buckle width]: 18/16, 19/16, 20/16, 21/18 and 22/18mm & 11 colours: tan, brown, dark brown, black, cinnamon brown, olive green, denim blue, grey blue, dark smooth brown, cognac brown and vintage green. I sell these separately in my eBay store under eBay item number 401105271426.

Important Note: Sometimes I am asked what I exactly mean with ‘professionally inspected by Localtime’. 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 do not buy ‘junk’ watches to resell. I am choosy with my purchases and always sell watches that are, to my knowledge, authentic and in good condition. 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’. In both cases, I include a written warranty with my buy it now price and I always describe what I have changed, if anything, on the watch.

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.
