From the glorious 1970’s, a DAMAS Swiss 20ATU diver with an automatic 25j Day & Date AS Cal. 1986 movement that has been professionally inspected in-house by Localtime.
It is in honest/authentic condition throughout and ready to proudly wear or join your collection. The 43mm (46.50mm counting the screw-in crown) stainless steel case (that extends a staggering 50mm L2L) is in unpolished condition and has only been lightly cleaned. The ‘bullseye’ dial is a feast to the eyes. All parts of this watch are its original parts, including the glass that was lightly polished as I noticed a couple of hairlines after the studio macro, close-up photos. I have made many photos, including some closeup fun snapshots. This lovely watch is fitted with a brand new and great quality brown calf leather strap.
As with all the watches we handle inhouse, 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.
EXTRA! Check out my own Localtime straps: Handmade from premium calf leather to my own specifications in Italy, they come in 5 sizes (lug width/buckle width): 18/16, 19/16, 20/16, 21/18 and 22/18mm & 11 colours. They are listed separately in the store under Accessories & Straps and you can also see them in the last photo here.
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.
