(Galco) and Watex Watch Works. Im not looking to split them up. Movement: AS 1950/1951 17j handwind. Description: I doubt Ive worn this more than two or three times in the years Ive owned it; its condition was just too perfect to risk marring. I hate to get rid of this but if Im afraid to wear it then it needs a new home.The movement runs well with no issues. There are no blemishes that Ive noticed. The dial and hands have a lovely patina, particularly the lume, but theres otherwise little else to suggest its age. NOTE: this watch will come on its original rally-style Tropic strap, not the aftermarket tropic strap or NATO strap shown in most of the pictures. Movement: Standard 96-4 17j handwind.
Case: likely plated brass, but could be stainless. Description: overall condition of this watch is good. The bezel is worn but not beat up. The case and crystal look good, though the crystal could benefit from some Polywatch. The case back notes that it is stainless, which would suggest that the case is plated brass, but theres no hint of pitting or plating loss, so the case may be stainless.The polished 12-6-9 markers and the domed crystal make the dial difficult to photograph, but this is a legible dial with an attractive grey ombré finish. NOTE: the paint on the dial has some chipping around the edges, most noticeable between 5-6 and 8-9. Please see the photographs as they describe the watch better than I can.
These are UNSERVICED, VINTAGE watches. Their service history is unknown.
They run fine but I give no guarantees as to accuracy. The lume has little-to-no glow. Regardless of each watchs stated water resistance, vintage watches should NOT be considered water resistant to any depth.
