A HARVEL Watch Co. NY [Gagnebin & Cie] gents vintage dress watch, with a 17j AS Cal. 1187 movement, a caliber that was widely used in military watches in the 1950’s.
Professionally restored and fully serviced in-house here at the Localtime Spa, this lovely timepiece has a movement dust cover but no military markings, so probably it was a civilian or not mil-issued version. The case has been professionally replated and the movement fully serviced. A stunning watch from that glorious period, this classic dress watch comes on a calf leather strap in dark brown that we think compliments the all original and beautiful dial patina and lovely hands/numerals, very nicely. We have made many photos of this beautiful timepiece, including some macro close-up shots we took just for fun.
As with all the watches we restore and service in-house here at the Localtime Spa, this also comes with a 6-month written warrantee from the date of purchase. Feel free to ask any questions you might have.
