STELLAR~60s ALSTA LINEN DIAL SUPERAUTOMATIC

Regular price $465.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A GORGEOUS 1960s ALSTA SUPERAUTOMATIC LINEN DIAL SPORTS WATCH. RECENTLY SERVICED . 

 

CASE: STUNNING SHARP ALL STEEL CASE WITH ROBUST SCREW-BACK MEASURING A NICE 34mm NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 42mm LUG TO LUG. THIS CASE REMINDS ME OF THOSE OFFERED BY LONGINES FOR THE FLAGSHIP MODELS WITH THOSE LONG SHARP ANGULAR FACETED LUGS. THIS ONE IS IN REALLY NICE CONDITION. 

 

DIAL: I’M A SUCKER FOR A GOOD OL’ FASHION LINEN DIAL, AND THIS SILVER ONE DOES NOT DISAPPOINT. THIS ONE ALMOST HAS A HIGHLY TEXTURED MOSAIC QUAILTY TO IT...REALLY PHENOMENAL. A TINY BIT OF PATINA VIEWED IN SUPER DIRECT BRIGHT SUN BUT OVERALL STUNNING. I LOVE THE INSET SILVER MARKERS. LUME PLOTS ARE INTACT AND MATCH THE AGED TRITIUM ON THOSE DAUPHINE HANDS. 

 

MOVEMENT: THIS GENTLEMAN RUNS ON A 17 JEWEL ETA BASED AUTOMATIC. THESE WERE EXTREMELY ROBUST MOVEMENTS FOR THE TIME. THIS ONE WAS JUST RECENTLY SERVICED AND IS RUNNING IN TIP-TOP CONDITION. 

 

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A ROBUST DARK BROWN STRAP WITH CREME STITCHING WHICH LOOKS MIGHTY COOL ON THIS CLASSY FELLA.  YOU MIGHT BE FAMILIAR WITH THE BRAND ALSTA FROM THEIR FAMOUS NAUTOSCAPH DIVE MODELS FROM THE 60s AND 70s MOST PROMINENTLY FEATURED ON THE WRIST OF RICHARD DREYFUSS IN THE MOVIE JAWS. THE NAUTOSCAPH MODELS ALSO HAD THIS SUPERAUTOMATIC DESIGNATION WHICH INDICATED THESE WERE ADVENTURING WATCHES(MUCH LIKE A SEAMASTER, OYSTER PERPETUAL, OR ANTARCTIC). THIS LINEN DIAL DUDE WOULD MAKE A GREAT COMPANION TO GO ALONG WITH A VINTAGE NAUTOSCAPH DIVER BUT IS DEFINITLY COOL AS HELL IN ITS OWN REGARD. THIS IS A GREAT EVERY DAY WATCH WHICH CAN EASILY DRESS UP OR DRESS DOWN FOR ANY SITUATION.
