FOR SALE IS A TOTALLY SWANKY MID 60s GLYCINE ALTUS SINGLE CROWN COMPRESSOR. 

  • CASE: CLEAN AND CRISP SOLID STEEL CASE MEASURING IN AT 34.5mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROSS-HATCH CROWN. 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 GREY FACE LOOKS LOVELY.  I LOVE THE INSET SILVER SLIVER MARKERS WHICH GIVE THIS A CLASSY APPEARANCE. MY FAVORITE PART HAS TO BE THOSE WHITE TIPPED DAUPHINE HANDS WHICH SERIOUSLY LOOK SPORTY.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS WELL MANNERED GENT RUNS ON A 17J ETA HANDWOUND MECHANICAL. 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 SHARP LOOKING VINTAGE LIZARD GRAIN 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.
