FUNKY~70s MERLOT VELIS ALARM WATCH

Regular price $425.00 Sale

COMING AT YOU IS THIS ULTRA SUAVE MINT CONDITION 70s VELIS A.SCHILD ALARM WATCH WITH STUNNING MERLOT DIAL. 

 

  • CASE: HEFTY CHROMED CUSHION CASE IN MINTY CONDITION.   THIS BEAUTY MEASURES A CHUNKY 40mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWNS BY 42mm LUG TO LUG.  THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE CASE SHAPES WHICH WEARS SO SOLID ON THE WRIST.

 

  • DIAL: THIS SUNBURST MERLOT DIAL IS A TOTAL BABE.  CHECK OUT THOSE STRIKING APPLIED STEEL/WHITE MARKERS WHICH HAVE A NICE POP AGAINST THE RED.  SUCH A STRIKING LOOK.  LUME PLOTS ARE COMPLETELY INTACT AND PERFECTLY MATCH THE TRITIUM ON THE CLEAN HANDSET. I JUST LOVE THAT RED TIPPED ARROW ALARM HAND.  THE BEST THING ON THIS FACE, THOUGH, IS THAT CABLE CAR APPLIED LOGO.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS FUNKY CHICKEN IS POWERED BY AN A.SCHILD 17J SWISS MADE ALARM MOVEMENT.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN BUT WATCH HAS BEEN BEHAVING AMAZINGLY FOR WEEKS OF ON/OFF WRIST OBSERVATION. DATE IS NON-QUICKSET

 

  • THIS VELIS IS MOUNTED ON A HANDSOME MINIMALIST STRAP WHICH LOOKS EXTRA SPORTY ON THIS ONE.  THAT MERLOT COLORED DIAL REALLY SETS THIS ONE APART AND MAKES IT A TOTAL BLAST TO WEAR.  THIS IS A GREAT ALL-ROUNDER AND A NICELY PRESERVED SPECIMEN OF 70s WRIST DECADENCE.
