Coming from the 1970’s, this Super Sub Sea diver chronograph watch by Movado (Swiss) has been professionally inspected by Localtime.
The all-steel case measures in at 44.25mm including the logoed screw-in crown at 3h. Inside you will find the notorious El Primero Cal. 3019, one of the ‘collaborations’ that came out of the Zenith/Movado collaboration belonging to the same group of companies during those times. A very clean watch all around, its wearing a plush Italian leather strap in black (with white stitching) that suits the watch and accentuates the reverse panda dial very nicely.
As with all the watches that are handled by Localtime, the listed BIN price includes a written 6-month warranty from the date of purchase. Feel free to ask me any questions that you might have.
Try my Localtime corfam-style leather straps, listed separately here in my store, under Accessories & Straps.
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 warrantee 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.
