JOVIAL / FORTIS / CAUNY / LePHARE / DAMAS. Blue / grey / green dial versions from my collection. Please apologise some dust and fingerprints on the case.This is the best jump hour calibre from the 1970's in quality execution. A highly reliable Adolf Schild AS2072 self-winding 17 jewels Swiss movement. Also the famous Spaceman, Damas and Lip Baschmakoff featured this high-grade movement. This design was available from a few distinct brands e. Jovial, Jovissa, LePhare and more. It is super cool and iconic for the space era and resembles an alien space device. It looks great on the wrist and has a very comfortable high-grade bracelet. This is the factory fitted original stainless bracelet that greatly compliments the watch.
The bracelet will fit a 20cm wrist and it has adjustments on the clasp for smaller sizes. The watch is in excellent NOS condition with sticker on back. It has never been worn and has the lightest storage wear. Pictures are indicative for reference as storage marks will vary per piece. Massive 42mm wide case without crown, heavy men's size.
Signed on the crystal, crown, caseback and clasp. The automatic AS2072 movement has just been serviced and timed. It works great, keeps very good time, it sets and jumps correctly.This is a very high-grade self-winding watch and was quite expensive in the 1970's. These are genuine vintage NOS watches and feature a proper jump hour mechanism. A tiny jump spring is fitted underneath the digital discs and time-setting is only clockwise.
These are not modern reproductions. Beware of non-jumping modern retro copies. Check my other auctions for vintage watches.
