I really like this type of dress watches, they are really classy. This ‘Marine Master’ by Le Cheminant has been professionally inspected in-house here at Localtime.
It boasts a silver-white sunburst dial with metal applied indices, in a ‘Calatrava’ layout with the crossed seconds’ sub-dial at 6h. The screw-down stainless steel case measures in at 34.50mm or 36.50mm counting the crown at 3h and carries a 17j manual wind Peseux Cal. 320. It is wearing one of my own ‘Prestige’ line of calf leather straps in tan brown that, in my humble opinion, fits it quite nicely.
As with all the watches I inspect here at Localtime, the listed BIN price will include a written 6-month warranty from the date of purchase. Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have.
Extra: Try my Localtime ‘Prestige’ line of straps (photo below), listed separately 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 mention what has been changed (if anything) on the watch and I include a written warranty with my listed price.
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.
