FOR SALE IS A SPORTY AND SUPER CLEAN EARLY 70s TRADITION SELF-WINDING AUTOMATIC.

 

  • CASE: BOLD ALL-STEEL CUSHION CASE MEASURING IN AT 35mm NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 42mm LUG TO LUG. LOOK AT THE FINISHING ON THAT CASE WITH THAT SHARP RADIAL BRUSHED TOP AND HORIZONTALLY BRUSHED SIDES. THIS ONE WEARS REALLY NICE AND MORE LIKE A 36-37mm DUE TO THAT THIN BEZEL AND WIDER DIAL. 

 

  • DIAL: REALLY OUTSTANDING LOOK ON THIS SILVER SUNBURST DIAL. I LOVE THOSE TALL AND CHUNKY STEEL/BLACK APPLIED MARKERS WHICH ADD SOME NICE DEPTH COMBINED WITH THAT SLOPING SILVER CHAPTER RING. ALL THE LUME PLOTS ARE INTACT AND MATCH NICELY WITH THE TRITIUM ON THOSE SANDWICH STYLE STICK HANDS. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS TRADITION RUNS ON A 17 JEWEL GILTED ETA 2783 AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT. DATE IS QUICKSET BY USING THE FIRST STOP ON THE CROWN. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN ON THIS ONE, BUT IT'S BEEN RUNNING SOLID FOR ME AND KEEPING TIME.  

    THIS TRADITION COMES ON A COOL PERIOD APPROPRIATE ALL-STEEL BRACELET WHICH SHOULD BE ABLE TO ACCOMODATE ANY SIZE WRIST. THIS WAS SEARS ROEBUCKS IN-HOUSE WATCH BRAND FROM THE LATE 50s UP UNTIL THE 80s. THEY HAD SOME VERY FAMOUS SPORTS WATCH MODELS MOST NOTABLY THEIR PANDA DIAL CHRONOGRAPH WHICH WAS IDENTICAL TO THE HEUER CARRERA. THIS PARTICULAR MODEL IS THE PERFECT DAILY WEARER.
