WNS-6070-4078 - Alpha - 83 TS - Green Dial Ring - Full Front View

Case:  The cushion style case has a brushed and polished steel finish with faceted edges and is in great condition.

It measures 38 mm end to end and 38 mm in width, 40 mm with original crown.  (The steel winding crown is located at the 3 o'clock position and is in excellent shape as well.)

The screw-down back lid is marked Fond Acier Inoxydable, Fab. Suisse, Etanche, Incabloc, Antimagnetic, 17 Rubis, ALPHA with the serial number #935,878. This case lid still has its original protective sticker attached.  

Dial: The dial is absolutely gorgeous, complete with a two-tone black and green “radiating” 60 second outer dial with applied silver hour indicators with luminous mint green markers, a brushed silver steel “sunburst” center dial, silver and luminous fill baton style hour and minute hands, green bordered date window at the 3 position and a “sweeping” silver seconds hand. It is signed ALPHA below the 12 marker with the trademark “a” and also signed with the model number 83 TS Incabloc above the 6 marker. (The incabloc word means this watch features a shockproof balance, a nice feature that withstands jolts and knocks.)  Below the 6 marker the dial is further signed SWISS MADE. The domed crystal is all original and is in excellent and mint condition.

Movement: A clean (brand new conditioned) mechanical wind movement that is a ETA Caliber 2763 with 17 Jewels.  It is signed Alpha Watch Co., SWISS, Seventeen 17 Jewels with an engraved green enamel circle with a cross coming out from the 1 area.  It is stamped ETA 2763 below the balance wheel and further signed ALPHA WATCH CO. on the inside lid.

Strap: A new 19 mm Black Lizard Calf strap with matching chrome steel buckle.

Comments: This vintage mid-60s Charles Eames era watch must be seen to be believed.  It is a Retro Modern Space Age designed watch that is 100% New Old Stock, (meaning that it has been never sold, never worn and is, in effect, in brand new and mint condition.)  This is a high quality, European market ETA Caliber 2763 watch, not sold in North America and Quadruple Signed.  Made in Switzerland by the well respected Alpha Watch Co.
