COOL~60s BUREN "MIN-STOP" PARKING METER TIMER

Regular price $0.69 Sale

FOR SALE IS A GROOVY BUREN MINI-STOP PARKING METER TIMER IN GREAT CONDITION.

  • CASE: CLEAN CUSHION CHROMED CASE MEASURING 36mm NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 44mm LUG TO LUG. THE ORIGINAL FACTORY BRUSHING IS FULLY INTACT ON THE TOP OF THE CASE.  THERE IS A SLIGHT AMOUNT OF WEAR ON THE CASE SIDES, AND THE BACK OF THE LUGS, BUT OVERALL IT LOOKS PRETTY SHARP.

 

  • DIAL: OH HELL YEAH!!! ONE OF THE MORE ICONIC DIALS OF THE TIMES.  I JUST LOVE THE LAYOUT OF THESE WITH THAT HALF MOON DISPLAY WHICH SHOWS THE ELAPSED TIME WITH LARGE WHITE NUMBERS ON A BLACK ROTATING DISC.  THE SUNBURST SILVER DIAL IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH JUST A BIT OF FADE ON THE MIN-STOP TEXT.  REALLY SHARP AND CLEAN APPLIED STEEL MARKERS LOOK AWESOME PAIRED WITH THOSE STEEL STICK HANDS. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS WELL MANNERED BUREN RUNS ON A CLEAN DUROWE 471-4 17JEWEL GERMAN MOVEMENT WITH FLYBACK STOPWATCH FUNCTION WHICH RESETS THE TIMER. THE TIMER IS ALWAYS RUNNING ON THESE BUT SETS BACK TO "0" WITH THE TOP BUTTON.  I RECEIVED THIS WATCH WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT IT HAD BEEN RECENTLY SERVICED.  IT IS KEEPING GREAT TIME AND FUNCTIONS SMOOTHLY.

    I'VE GOT THIS COSMIC MOUNTED ON A CARAMEL COLOR MINIMALIST STRAP WHICH LOOKS AWESOME ON THIS BUREN.  THIS IS ONE OF THOSE QUIRKY ODDITIES OF THE 60s WHICH REALLY IS FUN TO HAVE IN YOUR WATCH COLLECTION.  THE MINSTOP WERE DEVELOPED TO TIME HOW LONG YOU'VE HAD YOUR CAR PARKED IN A SPOT WITH A PARKING-METER. THE DESIGN MIMICS THAT OF A PARKING METER, AND IN MY OPINION IS A REAL COOL LOOK.  THIS IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF ONE OF THESE AND A MUST-HAVE FOR ANY COLLECTOR.
