SPORTY~1970 GLYCINE EPSA SUPER COMPRESOR DRESS-DIVER

Regular price $0.00 $425.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A TOTALLY SWANKY LATE 60s GLYCINE SINGLE CROWN COMPRESSOR AUTOMATIC REFERENCE 645.

  • CASE: CLEAN AND CRISP SOLID STEEL CASE MEASURING IN AT 34.5mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROSS-HATCH CROWN BY 42.2mm LUG TO LUG. 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 SILVER FACE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.  I LOVE THOSE INLAID SILVER MARKERS AND THE GROOVY CROSSHAIRS. DIAL HAS SOME MINOR BLEMISHES BUT OVERALL IN SUPER TIGHT SHAPE. ORIGINAL CRYSTAL IS IN CLEAN CLEAR SHAPE WITH A MINOR DING AROUND THE 8 MARKER. SUCH AS BOLD AND CLASSIC DESIGN

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS WELL MANNERED GENT RUNS ON A 17J ETA AUTOMATIC. QUICKSET IS ACHIEVED BY ROTATING TIME BETWEEN 2000-2400.  MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THIS ONE WAS SERVICED IN 2016. WATCH IS KEEPING GOOD TIME.

    I'VE GOT THIS GLYCINE COMPRESSOR MOUNTED ON A BAD-ASS BROWN GENUINE SHARKSKIN STRAP WHICH LOOKS SUPER SPORTY.  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.
