Early 1950’s SVEA (Georges Favre-Jacot & Cie. / Zenith, Swiss) Stainless Steel Case Gents Dress Watch – Manual Wind
1 in stock
A nicely preserved and classic gents field-dress watch by SVEA (Swiss), this exquisite watch, has been professionally inspected by Localtime and is ready to wear or join your collection. During the inspection, the plexi glass was changed.
The solid steel case (35mm or 37mm counting the crown at 3h) measures 42mm L2L, has a classy thickness of 10mm and has been professionally cleaned but not polished, to maintain its original integrity. It is in a lovely vintage condition and is a very classy looker on the wrist. The beige/brown bullseye dial and lumed hands and numerals are original and with a nice patina that combines wonderfully for a classy vintage look. It is carrying a manual-wind which is unmarked. It is wearing a lovely brown Cordura canvas strap by Poletto Cinturini Italy that are also listed separately in the store, here.
As with all the watches we handle in-house, the listed buy-it-now price includes a 6-month written warranty from the time of purchase. Do not hesitate to contact us for any further information you might need.
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.
