STUNNING~LATE 60s TECHNO SKY LIGHT PIE-PAN DIAL~SERVICED

Regular price $450.00 Sale

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS A SUPER CLEAN LATE 60s TECHNOS SKY LIGHT AUTOMATIC. ALL ORIGINAL. SIGNED 5X. JUST SERVICED.

  • CASE: GORGEOUS ALL STEEL CASE IN SHARP CONDITION.  THIS BEAUTY MEASURES 35mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN BY 42.5mm LUG TO LUG.  I LOVE THE EDGY AND ANGULAR SHAPE OF THIS CASE WITH THOSE GROOVY CHAMFERS. REALLY NICE FINISHING ON THIS ONE. THE DEEP ETCHING ON THE CASEBACK IS A COOL TOUCH. 
  • DIAL: CAN YOU GET SEXIER THAN A PIE PAN DIAL? I THINK NOT. DEFINITELY SOME STRONG DESIGN CUES FROM THE OMEGA CONSTELLATION SERIES ON THIS GUY. THE CENTRAL SECTION HAS A HANDSOME SUNBURST SILVER FINISH FLANKED BY A SATIN BRUSHED SEGMENT HOUSING THOSE TOWERING BLACK/STEEL MARKERS. THAT TOP-HAT GLASS CRYSTAL IS REALLY SOMETHING TO BEHOLD. REMINDS ME OF THE ONES USED BY SEIKO AND CITIZEN DURING THIS TIME PERIOD AND GIVES THE DIAL SOME COOL DEPTH.
  • MOVEMENT: THIS TECHNOS RUNS ON A GILTED 25 JEWEL ETA AUTOMATIC. WATCH JUST RECEIVED A SERVICE AND IS RUNNING STRONG. 

THIS STUNNER IS MOUNTED ON A SUPER FINE TECHNOS SIGNED MILANESE BRACELET THAT IS UNBELIEVABLY NICE.  TECHNOS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE VINTAGE BRANDS. LIKE RADO AND MIDO, IT WAS ONE OF THOSE LESSER KNOWN SWISS BRANDS THAT REALLY PUSHED THE ENVELOPE IN TERMS OF DESIGN ESPECIALLY IN THE MID TO LATE 60s AND EARLY 70s. THIS SKY LIGHT IS NO EXCEPTION. DEFINITELY DRAWING SOME INSPIRATION FROM THE OMEGA CONSTELLATION, THIS IS THE BRANDS UNIQUE TAKE ON THE PIE-PAN DIAL AND HAS A SIMILAR DRESSY YET CAPABLE FEEL TO IT. THIS ONE IS A TOTAL SWEET-HEART.
