A lovely gents dress watch from the 1950’s, this DECORA (Swiss) date-pointer vintage timepiece with a manual-wind Förster Cal. 2092SC movement, was professionally inspected in-house here at Localtime.
The unpolished case has been lightly cleaned and a new plexi was installed. The stunning, two-tone silver dial, gold-toned indices and hands are a feast to the eyes. The case measures 34mm or 36mm including the crown at 3h. A stunning watch from that glorious period, this classic dress watch comes on a classy NSA-style steel bracelet that I think compliments this lovely timepiece, very nicely. I have made many photos of this beautiful timepiece, including some macro snapshots to allow you to enjoy the intricate details.
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: Try my Localtime Tejus lizard-texture Italian leather straps! I have found these straps to be very comfortable and a great match especially for dress watches that will combine well with this style of straps. They come in 5 sizes (16-18-20-22-24mm), 11 colours and have colour-matching stitching. Their length is approximately 85mm on the buckle end and 115mm on the tail end; so not short but not too long either. Please note that silver and gold refers to the buckle colour and not the material. They have two keepers, one of them is fixed and the other one is floating, for a better fit and comfort. I sell these straps separately in my store and you can also see them in the last photo here. A good quality pair of spring bars is included with each strap. Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have.
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.
