Description
Vintage, Gentleman's absolutely outstanding, original Swiss/French 'Oriosa' quartz pocket watch with beautiful champagne/ivory dial (which has the rarer day/date feature) in a 12 carat (tested) gold plated full hunter case. C~1970's. Looks to have been much loved and very well cared for - her condition certainly reflects this. Full working order and is an excellent timekeeper with a new battery just fitted. Fully checked by my highly experienced watchmaker and is guaranteed to be 100% authentic - a timepiece to grace any collection! DIAL:- Impressive and distinctive, high gloss, champagne/ivory, slightly textured 'sunburst' dial in mint condition - absolutely no hairlines, marks or nibbles. Signed clearly in bold black script; ORIOSA SWISS QUARTZ and signed below the sub dial in arched black script; SWISS MADE. Raised gold index markers (all with black inserts) with black minute markers forming the chapter ring. Finely cut, original gold dauphine hands (again with black inserts) and original gold sweep hand all in lovely straight, unmarked order. Day/date window located at the 3 position (both operate correctly) which shows the days in English and French. Original hunter crystal in clear and bright condition with very few, extremely tiny (micro) little surface scratches showing under eyeglass only. CASE:- The highly polished 12ct (tested) gold plated original French case (4.4cm diameter / 5.5cm from top of bow to base) has a pleasing solid feel in the hand (total watch weight is a very respectable 50.6 grams) and is in wonderful condition - absolutely no indentations or wear (again looks to have been very well cared for) and just a few very light little micro surface scratches (again showing under eyeglass only) commensurate with age and use in her 40+ years service. Beautifully adorned to front and back covers with a very attractive engine turned decoration and highly polished circumference. Both covers are beautifully decorated to the inside with 'fish scale' engine turning - the detail of which is as bright and crisp today as the day it was made. The front cover opens correctly to exactly 90 degrees when the winder is depressed, closing tightly with a very reassuring click and the hinge is true and firm with absolutely no play. The back cover snaps on and off correctly, closing tightly -again with a very reassuring click. Clearly stamped to the inside in bold black script; BASE METAL Swiss Made Watch French Case 4113. MOVEMENT:- The Swiss quartz movement is in superb bright and clean order and has just been checked and as mentioned earlier a new battery has been fitted. Clearly stamped to the top plates; DAYTRONIC SWISS SEVEN 7 JEWELS UNADJUSTED Y2. Stamped to the bottom plate; ETP 9362. Hand set operates smoothly and correctly - the pull up/push down action is very firm and true. Lovely totally un-worn gold plated flat topped 'onion' crown. Good original un-worn gold plated horse shoe shaped bow. APPRAISAL:- A very handsome and highly impressive Gentleman's Vintage Swiss/French timepiece which was much loved and very well cared for - she will make a perfect gift and a heirloom to be enjoyed by your future generations! Ready to wear or display. Will be delivered very securely and safely packed.
