Regular price $429.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A SUPER SHARP AND MEGA CLASSY 60s EPSA CASED GOLDEN SINGLE CROWN COMPRESSOR ELECTRIC WATCH RUNNING ON A LANDERON 4750. 

 

CASE: STUNNING AND BEEFY EPSA GOLD PLAQUE CASE WITH ROBUST SCREW-BACK MEASURING A LARGE 35.2mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROSS-HATCHED CROWN BY 43mm LUG TO LUG. THIS ONE HAS SOME NICE HEFT TO IT AND WEARS LIKE A DREAM. LOOK AT THAT CRISP CASEWORK AND THOSE REALLY WELL DEFINED AND SHARP CHAMFERS THAT RUN ALONG THE LUGS. THE GOLD IS IN VERY WELL PRESERVED CONDITION WITH NO SIGNS OF WEAR. THIS ONE WEARS LARGE. CASEBACK HAS SOME CASE OPENING MARKS, BUT OVERALL THIS ONE IS IN TREMENDOUSLY CLEAN CONDITION 

 

DIAL: NOW THIS IS A LOOKER. I LOVE THAT MATTE SILVERY WHITE DIAL IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH JUST A TINY HINT OF AGED PATINA. THE MIRRORED RING THAT RUNS AROUND THE PERIPHERY GIVES THIS A COOL 2-TONE FEEL. BUT, IT'S ALL ABOUT THOSE WICKED LIGHTNING BOLT MARKERS AND SECONDS HAND. THE LUME PLOTS ON THIS ARE NICELY PRESERVED AS IS THE TRITIUM ON THOSE SHARP DAUPHINE HANDS. THIS ONE IS AN ABSOLUTE STUNNER. THERE IS A TINY DING ON THE DIAL WHICH BASICALLY FADES INTO THE BACKGROUND AND IS HARDLY NOTICEABLE, BUT I THOUGHT I’D MENTION.  

 

MOVEMENT: THIS GENTLEMAN RUNS ON A 13 JEWEL LANDERON 4750 HYBRID ELECTRO-MECHANICAL MOVEMENT WHICH USES A BATTERY TO RUN A BALANCE WHEEL. THESE WERE EXTREMELY ROBUST CUTTING EDGE MOVEMENTS FOR THEIR TIME AND AMONGST THE EARLIEST OFFERINGS WITH THIS NEW TECHNOLOGY. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN ON THIS ONE, BUT IT'S RUNNING STRONG AND KEEPING WITHIN 1 MINUTE A DAY. THIS ONE COMES WITH A CUSTOM SPACER TO ACCOMODATE A MODERN 390 BATTERY. 

 

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A BROWN STITCHLESS CROC GRAIN STRAP WHICH LOOKS ULTRA SUAVE ON THIS DUDE.  THIS BAYLOR REALLY SCRATCHES A LOT OF ITCHES: IT’S AN EPSA COMPRESSOR DIVE WATCH, IT’S A GOLD WATCH, AND IT’S GOT THE QUIRKY AND FUN TRANSITIONAL ELECTRO-MECHANICAL TECHNOLOGY COMPLETE WITH THE LIGHTNING BOLT MOTIFS. THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE BLAST TO WEAR, AND IT’S A STUNNING BEAUTY OF A TIMEPIECE
