In stunning condition, this ‘Worldtimer’ sport watch from the early 1970’s by Vulcain (Swiss), has been professionally inspected by Localtime.
It is in excellent authentic condition throughout and ready to proudly wear or join your collection. The 39.50mm (42mm counting the centre crown) case is in excellent, unpolished condition. The blue sunburst dial, blue bi-directional Worldtime bezel, gorgeous hands/indices and inner zulu-timing ring, are a feast to the eyes. I have included many photos, including some closeup snapshots I took, just for fun. This lovely watch is fitted with one of my own handmade premium Italian leather straps in red. These lovely straps can also be purchased separately from my eBay store, under eBay item number 202481981474.
As with all the watches I handle here at Localtime, the BIN price includes a written 6-month written warranty from the date of purchase.Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have.
Extra: Try my Localtime seatbelt wrap-around straps: I do not usually sell this type of straps for the simple reason that I cannot compete with the super-cheap, bad quality products that we see around. I simply refuse to buy/sell poor quality products, just because they are cheap. This line of straps though, I liked it. Its a very decent quality and I can sell it at a very decent price. They come in 15 different colour combinations and 3 sizes (18mm, 20mm and 22mm). I will include a pair of good quality Swiss spring bars with every strap. Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have. You can see them in the last photo here and/or purchase them separately under eBay item 133082764940. 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 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.
