Regular price $0.00 $575.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A TOTALLY SWANKY LATE 60s GLYCINE SINGLE CROWN COMPRESSOR AUTOMATIC REFERENCE 645.

  • CASE: CLEAN AND CRISP SOLID STEEL CASE MEASURING IN AT 34.5mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROSS-HATCH CROWN BY 42.2mm LUG TO LUG. THIS IS A MEGA SMOOTH DRESS WATCH WITH NICE SHARP EDGES AND HANDSOME CHAMFERS ON THE LUGS.  THERE ARE SOME MINOR HAIRLINES, BUT OVERALL CASE IS IN SWEET SHAPE. I JUST LOVE THE DRILLED LUGS WHICH MAKE STRAP CHANGES A CINCH.  

 

  • DIAL: GORGEOUS SUNBURST SILVER FACE IN MINTY CONDITION.  I LOVE THE SUBTLE PIEPAN DESIGN ON THIS DIAL WHICH REALLY GIVES THIS ONE SOME INTRIGUE. NICE AND BOLD APPLIED STEEL BLACK MARKERS REALLY ADD SOME DEPTH TO THE DIAL. MY FAVORITE PART HAS TO BE THOSE BLACK TIPPED DAUPHINE HANDS WHICH SERIOUSLY LOOK SPORTY. ORIGINAL CRYSTAL IS IN CLEAN CLEAR SHAPE WITH A MINOR HAIRLINE CRACK ON THE PERIPHERY BETWEEN THE 8-9 MARKERS. I COULDN'T REALLY CAPTURE IT IN THE PICS.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS WELL MANNERED GENT RUNS ON A 17J ETA AUTOMATIC. QUICKSET IS ACHIEVED BY ROTATING TIME BETWEEN 2000-2400.  SERVICE HSTORY IS UNKNOWN ON THIS ONE, BUT SHE'S BEEN KEEPING TIGHT TIME AND RUNS WITH A NICE POWER RESERVE.

    I'VE GOT THIS GLYCINE COMPRESSOR MOUNTED ON A BAD-ASS NOS TEXTURED AND TAPERED VINTAGE RUBBER STRAP WHICH RIDES THE LINE BETWEEN ELEGANT AND SPORTY....WHICH MAKES SENSE FOR THIS PIECE.  I JUST LOVE THE BLENDING OF VINTAGE WATCH GENRES ON THIS ONE.  ON ONE HAND, ITS A MANLY DRESS WATCH WITH SLEEK LINES AND A CLASSY DIAL, AND ON THE OTHER ITS A SPORTY DIVER CASED IN A COMPRESSOR STEEL BODY. EPSA, WHO MANUFACTURED THE CASE FOR THIS ONE, WAS FAMOUS AND HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER IN THE 60s AND 70s FOR THEIR EXTREMELY STURDY SUPER-COMPRESSOR CASES.  THIS IS A GORGEOUS ALL PURPOSE VINTAGE WATCH WITH A GREAT LOOK AND AN AWESEOME PEDIGREE.
