A wonderful example of an ‘Aquamax Safety’ Super Compressor (with the short lugs) by Precimax (Helios SA / Manufacture d’ Horlogerie Précimax SA, Neuchâtel/Suisse) from November 1969 that has been professionally inspected in-house here at the Localtime Spa.
It is in honest/authentic condition throughout and ready to proudly wear or join your collection. The 43mm (46mm counting either of the two cross-hatched crowns) stainless steel EPSA case is in unpolished condition and has only been lightly cleaned. All parts of this watch are its original parts, even including the crystal that was nicely cleaned. I have made many photos, including some closeup snapshots, just for fun. This lovely watch is fitted with one of my own premium calf leather straps in black, handmade for Localtime in Italy.
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 our Localtime FKM Tropical straps. 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.
