A lovely oval-shaped gents vintage dress pocket watch by SARCAR Geneve. It has a manual-wind movement and it has been professionally inspected by Localtime.
It also has its original chain so its ready to wear or join your collection. The case (9-3) measures 35mm. Height-wise (6-12) the case measures 41mm or 44.50mm including the blue cabochon crown.
As with all the watches that are handled by Localtime, the BIN price includes a written 6-month written warrantee from the date of purchase.Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have.
Important Note On Condition: 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.
Extra: Try my Localtime vintage-style Ladder-Type straps! I have found these straps to be an excellent value and very comfortable indeed. They come in 3 sizes [20-22-24mm] and have 2 floating keepers. They come in 7 colours [black, blue, brown, green, orange, turquoise and yellow]. Their length is 95mm on the buckle end [including the steel, screw-in buckle] and 135mm on the tail end. I will include a pair of good quality spring bars with each strap. Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have. You can see them in the photo here below and they can be purchased separately from my eBay store under eBay item number 401545611463.
