Regular price $495.00 Sale

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS A SUPER WICKED 1960s MONDIA STELLARIS 30 JEWEL AUTOMATIC DAY/DATE PRESIDENT STYLE AUTOMATIC 

  • CASE: THIS CASE IS TOTALLY OUT THERE...IN A CLASSY AND ELEGANT SORT OF WAY.  THIS ANGULAR ALL-STEEL BEAUTY MEASURES A LARGE 39mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN.  IT'S AS IF THIS CASE WAS DESIGNED AS A SET PROP FOR THE FIRST SEASON OF STAR-TREK. THIS SPACE-AGE GEM IS IN TREMENDOUSLY GOOD CONDITION AND IS REALLY WELL EXECUTED WITH ALL ITS COMPLICATED ANGLES AND GEOMETRIC WHIMSY.
  • DIAL: I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS DIAL. DESPITE HAVING A LOT GOING ON, IT’S VERY WELL PROPORTIONED AND QUITE HANDSOME. CHECK OUT THAT SILVER DIAL WITH THAT BRUSHED FINISH THAT EMANATES OUT FROM THE DATE WINDOW AT 6.  I LOVE THOSE CHUNKY MARKERS WITH THE HORIZONTAL BARS AT 3/9 TOPPED WITH THE ONYX ACCENTS. OBVIOUSLY THE SHOW STOPPER ON THIS ONE IS THE DAY/DATE DISPLAY ON THE OPPOSITE POLES OF THE DIAL. I DIG THE POP OF NAVY BLUE ON THE DAY/DATE WINDOWS WHICH MATCH NICELY WITH THE STELLARIS STAR LOGO.  ALL TIED TOGETHER WITH SOME GROOVY DAGGER STYLE HANDS AND VIEWED UNDER THE ORIGINAL CRYSTAL WITH INTERNAL TREPZOIDAL CYCLOPS MAGNIFIER .
  • MOVEMENT: THIS MONDIA IS POWERED BY A 30 JEWEL AUTOMATIC WHICH IS RUNNING WELL AND KEEPING GOOD TIME. DATE IS SEMI-QUICKSET BUT DAY WINDOW IS NOT. 

THIS SCIENCE FICTION SPACE ODDITY COMES ON A VINTAGE PERIOD APPROPRIATE STEEL BRACELET WHICH FITS THE CASE PERFECTLY. BRACELET IS SIZED FOR MY 6.5” WRIST WITH AN ADDITIONAL 4 MICRO-ADJUSTS. THIS ONE IS DEFINITELY THE ULTIMATE CONVERSATION STARTER. STELLARIS WAS ONE OF THE SEARS ROEBUCK BRANDS OFFERED AT THEIR STORES. THIS MUST HAVE BEEN PRODUCED BY MONDIA FOR THE OLD SCHOOL RETAILER. THIS MONDIA IS READY TO GO "WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE."
