Since Retro seems to have gone from a fad phase to a full-fledged revival, we've gotten more and more phone calls for clean, original pieces from the mid '50s to early '70s. Because of this, fine examples of Mid-Century Retro watches have gotten a bit harder to get.
That being written: What a fine men's Retro Waltham this is!
This dress model is a thoroughly classic watch, with a perfect ice-cream dial featuring fancy markers, thick spear hands and a matching sub-seconds register. Marked "Waltham" in script with a gold star, it is a most mesmerizing face.
Of course such a dial could only be housed in an equally futuristic Retro case: A glorious yellow gold-filled example with oversized, sunburst lugs! Measuring a beefy 40mm lug-to lug by 32mm wide, this classic vintage timepiece has enough heft to grab someone's attention. The possibilities for this watch are endless: photo shoots, movies, gracing the perfect wrist of the ultimate watch lover; looking just as fitting at the country club or evening soiree as it would peeking from under the pressed shirt and suit sleeve as its wearer argues that "big" case or closes "THE" deal.
This extraordinary timepiece that begs to be worn by a member of the Cool Set; someone who is a Town and Country man, as comfortable in the boardroom as his is on the golf-course and who wants quality engineering and a rich, Retro look. And yes, this watch will garner admiring glances from beautiful women and compel grown men to jockey for your friendship.
Of course we have taken the liberty of cleaning, oiling and calibrating the watch so that it keeps time as intended. Also we've fitted the piece with a custom-made ostrich strap that complements the piece nicely. We are pleased to offer the watch in a period black velvet presentation box.
Everything works together to make this Waltham a must-have for the collector who wants that '60s panache.
