1950’s HARVEL Watch Co. NY, Vintage Dress Watch – 17j FHF Cal. 186


Out of stock

A truly stunning vintage watch, this HARVEL Watch Co. NY gents vintage dress watch, with a 17j FHF Cal. 186 movement, was professionally inspected and fully tested in-house here at the Localtime Spa.

The solid stainless steel case has been lightly cleaned and the plexi glass replaced. The dial and hands have been lightly cleaned and are a true feast to the eyes. Beautiful, even patina, really what a vintage dress watch should look like. A stunning watch from that glorious period, this classic dress watch comes on a black leather strap in black that we think compliments the all original and beautiful dial patina and lovely hands/numerals, very nicely. The inscription on the case back tells us that the original owner’s initials were G.F.E. We have made many photos of this beautiful timepiece, including some some macro close-up shots we took just for fun.

As with all the watches we inspect and test in-house here at the Localtime Spa, this also comes with a 3-month written warrantee from the date of purchase. Feel free to ask any questions you might have.
