Timex Blue Vintage

Review Timex Blue Dial Vintage


As part of my expanding vintage watch collection, I have added a Timex hand-wound watch watch.  Not sure what year, but it looks like it is from the early to mid 1970’s.  If I ever open up the watch, I will update this review.   It has a very clean look, with a simple case, identical to my Mickey Mouse watch, which is also from the early 70’s.  . The dial is a deep blue with a hint on purple.  There are block Arabic numerals at the hours, with no chapter ring or minute markers.  The dial is simply marked TIMEX, nothing more.  The hands are stark white sticks and are very easy to see against the dial. The case is 34mm diameter without and 36mm diameter with the crown, and wears quite small.  It is chrome plated over base metal.  This watch would be considered a ‘mid-size’ now.   The lugs are 18mm. Movement wise, it is an ordinary 22 movement hand wound only, no date. The watch starts instantly when wound and has good power reserve and accuracy.


The crown is unsigned, which is to be expected.  This watch was probably worn very little, there is no brassing on the chrome plate for the crown, showing it was rarely wound.  The crystal is domed acrylic and was in perfect shape when I purchased the watch, another indicator that the watch was worn little.  Blue_Dial_Back

The case back is a simple, snap on type, stainless steel.  Simply marked TIMEX, CRM PL BASE METAL BEZEL, STAINLESS STEEL BACK.  The watch came on its original, plastic band, very clean.  If this watch was worn more that 50 times before me, I would be shocked.  I put is on a nylon Zulu band, which I think compliments the dial well and makes it wear a little bigger.  The original plastic band was unwearable, at least to me.

I am very happy with this watch, super simple and easy to read.  My only complaints would be no date and no luminous material on the dial.



Case: 34mm, base metal with chrome plating.


Crystal: Acrylic with a light dome.

Movement: Hand winding only, Timex no-jewel pin lever escapement. Caliber 22, 18000 BPH.

Complications: None.

Other: Currently on Zulu nylon band.

Gallery Rado Homage

Gallery Rado Sinatra Homage


I received this watch as a gift from my father in law. It is a Gallery all ceramic watch, which is an homage to a Rado Sinatra watch.  The entire watch is ceramic with a sapphire crystal.  The dial of the watch is a simple black, with gold rectangular hour markers.  The hour and minute hands are gold plated tapered stick design, and the seconds hand is a simple stick as well.  The rectangular case limits the length of the hands.  The case is 32.5 x 31mm.  There is a small date window at 6 o’clock, with a white date wheel.  The crystal is thick, lightly domed sapphire and flows into the integrated bracelet of the watch.  The dial is framed with a black bezel, there is no minute chapter ring.  There is no luminous material.  The dial is simply marked Gallery and Ceramic.  Overall the dial is clean and the time is easy to read in most lighting.

The case is all ceramic, including the case back.  The back in held in place with screws, something which is unique in my collection.  The back is laser marked, Gallery All Ceramic, Sapphire Crystal, 3ATM water resistant, Japan Movt.  This homage to Rado does them proud, since they used similar, scratch proof materials.  Rado has always specialized in scratch proof watches, including using tungsten and all ceramic watches. The Japan movement indicates this watch has a Seiko or Miyota quartz movement, I will take a look when I do the first battery change and update the review then. So far, the accuracy is very good, gains about 10 seconds a month.

The crown is interesting, ceramic hexagonal shape and is easy to use. The date is quick-set when pulled to the first  position.  Unsigned, but I would not even know how you could sign this crown.

The deployant is two button with no safety lock.  It hides very well and is signed with Gallery.  The entire bracelet exterior is ceramic.  The inside has stainless steel links that hold it together.  It was surprisingly easy to re-size and is pretty comfortable.  A point to mention is that is has not shown any desk wear, which is typical of steel and gold watches.

This is an interesting watch.  I only have one other rectangular watch, so it is a good addition to the collection.  The watch has a very good heft and feels well made.  It is an homage to a classic watch, so you can’t go wrong.  It looks like an expensive bracelet when worn and still looks like brand new.

Case: 32.5x31mm,  all ceramic.
Back: ceramic, held by 4 screws
Crystal: Sapphire, domed.
Movement: Japan Made battery quartz, maker unknown.
Complications: Date
Other: All ceramic construction.

Bulova Dress

Bulova Dress Watch

Bulova Dial

I have had this piece for quite some time now, but I have not had a chance to actually review it.  It is a Bulova dress watch from 1960.  It has an M0 date code.  The dial is wonderfully simple, silver, with alternating finishing at the cardinal points.  The hour markers are gold plated applied sticks, except for 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock, which are diamond shaped.   There is no luminescent material anywhere.  The dial is only marked Bulova and Swiss.  Clean and simple.  The hands are gold plated lancette, hour and minute only.  I am not sure if this watch ever had a second hand, but it is long gone in the last 53 years.  There is no chapter ring, but the bezel has 60 flutes for the minute markers.  The crystal is domed acrylic and required very little polishing.  The lack of lume is probably a saving grace of this watch, since there was none to degrade, the dial is in amazing condition.  It is hard to believe this watch was made when Eisenhower was president!

Bulova Crown

The case is base metal(?) with a very healthy gold plating.  Being a hand wound watch, it is pretty darn thin.  0.205 inches (5.25mm), without the crystal, 0.355 inches (9mm) thick, with the crystal.  The lugs are 19mm, so pretty easy to find a replacement band.  The crown is unsigned and quite brassed over, really no gold left on there.  To be expected with a hand wound watch half a century old.  The watch is currently on ostrich pattern leather and suits the watch well.

Bulova BackBulova_Movement

The case back is screw down and stainless steel.  Simply marked on the outside with Bulova Swiss.  The movement is a work of art, an 11 AFC, 17 jewels, made in Switzerland.  The plates gleam like they are brand new and the gear train appears to be possibly gold plated, or brass with a hell of a shine.  The balance has micro adjustment screws and shock protected jewels.  It is a shame this watch does not have a seconds hand, it appears to be very accurate, but is hard to tell without the running seconds hand.  There is no markings of the last service date.  The movement is held in place with a metal spacer ring.  This was a very nice quality watch when it was produced.

All in all, a very nice dress watch to wear.  It keeps excellent time, is fairly thin, and easy to read.  It has no complications, but, it is the lack of gimmicks makes this watch a real classic.  Sometimes I wonder about what history this watch has seen.  Is the original owner still alive?  (Probably not.)  Was someone wearing it when man landed on the moon?  Was it worn to their or or a daughter’s wedding?  Who is to know?  I know that I will take care of this little machine until I can pass it down to my own son.

Case: 34mm,  gold plates base or stainless.
Back: Stainless Steel, screw down
Crystal: Acrylic, domed.
Movement: Bulova 11 AFC, 18,000 BPH movement, 17 jewels Swiss Made, shock protected, hand wind.
Complications: None
Other: On Ostrich Pattern leather band,  19 mm lugs.

Pulsar PT3035

Been slacking on the watch reviews, but with my distant birthday, I received two new watches, and I have had one in my watch box that deserves some attention. Interestingly, they are all Seiko movement chronographs, so I get to compare and contrast. This is article two of three.



Above is my first Pulsar watch, the PT 3035.  Pulsar is one of Seiko’s watch brands.  The least expensive Seiko are Lorus, to compete with Timex price points ($20 to $50), next up is Pulsar, which are positioned against Fossil and many many other fashion watches ($40 to $150).  Seiko branded is the next tier up, with a huge price range point from $70 to $7,000, and finally Grand Seiko, which can go toe to toe with the finest Swiss watches, and can go into the hundreds of thousands of dollar price range!  This, however, is a simple Pulsar Chronograph, and for what it is, it is a very impressive watch with a much better bang for the buck than Fossil or similar fashion watches.

The dial is a radial is matte plastic, black with concentric rings. There are three sub-dials: 9 O’clock is the minute accumulator for the chronograph, 6 O’clock the second accumulator, and at 3 O’clock, a 24 hour indicator.  Being only a one second chronograph, the long seconds hand is not a chronograph hand, but the running seconds hand.  The chapter ring is a bright orange,  with markers for every minute.  The hour and minute hands are a unique, cut out design, which was unexpected.  They have a high polish.  The seconds hand is tipped in a matching orange and has a lumed tail. The hour and minute hands also have luminous tips.  The hour markers are bold and have a generous amount of  Lumibrite and last a good amount of time.  Not as good as a diver, but very respectable for the price point.  The bezel is fluted, but sadly, does not rotate.  I think it is the one area they really had to cut corners on.  The date window is at the 4:30 position. Overall, the dial is relatively uncluttered for a chronograph and is well balanced. There is no luminous material.

The movement is a 1 second, 1 hour step back movement. The upper pusher starts and stops the chronograph, and the lower pusher resets. The hands have to wind all the way back to zero when the chronograph resets, which is a contrast to the fly-back on my Seiko and Omega chronographs.  Not a huge deal, but it does take some time to reset the chronograph.


The case is stainless steel, 44mm in diameter. Brushed on top with a high polish on the sides. The case back is stainless and screw down and marked with the Pulsar, 10ATM water resistance, with the cool two waves design.  I am very impressed with the overall fit and finish at this price, much better than a comparable Fossil.   The crown is pleasantly detailed and styled and easy to use.  The pushers are polished, but do not click when pressed.  They feel like a membrane push-button, which is what they probably are. The lugs are 22mm to make for easy bracelet to strap swaps. The bracelet is heavy and well made.  It is what I like to call pseudo solid link.  It is a folded link, but done in such a way it looks solid, with no exposed folded metal, also similar to Fossil and fashion watches. The end links are hollow.


The deployant clasp is a two push button design without a safety lock. It is marked deeply with Pulsar and has a brushed finish and appears well made.  It has two micro adjustment holes, making sizing acceptable but not that .  It is comfortable to wear and easy to use.

This watch is a great value for the money, I believe it easily tops a Fossil or similar fashion watch in the same price point.  The movement is what sets it apart, since it is a genuine Seiko movement and is sure to last for years. The overall presentation of the watch is excellent, and the unique hands and dial are original and not an homage that I can find.   It is bold and an eye grabber.  Although there are some compromises due to cost savings, it does not feel cheap.  A great watch at a competitive price.

Case: 44mm diameter, stainless steel, 100m water resistance.
Back: Stainless Steel, screw down.
Crystal: Hardlex, flat.
Movement: Battery Operated Quartz, Seiko in-house design. 1 hour, 1 second chronograph.
Complications: Date, 1 second, 1 hour chronograph, 24 hour indicator.
Other: 20mm folded link bracelet, stainless steel.

Waltham Vintage Black Dial

Vintage Waltham Black Dial.


What we have here is a classic, Swiss Made, Waltham watch from the late 50’s or early 60’s.  It features a clean, black dial, a hand-wound movement and classic look you have to pay big money for in a modern equivalent.

The dial is a charcoal black and has held up very well, with no discolorations.  The hour markers are applied rectangles, except for 12, 6, and 9 O’clock, which are a neat, blocky font.  The hour and minute hands are simple sticks, with lume.   The second hand has a red arrow tip, which really stands out against the dial and adds a lot of character to the watch.  An easy to read date window in located at 3:00.  The lume on the hands and dial are pretty much dead, which is to expected to a 50 year old tritium marked watch.  The dial is simply marked Waltham and Incabloc, 17 jewels.  t -Swiss -t, indicating a tritium lume.  The crystal is acrylic and lightly domed.  It was in pretty rough shape when I bought it, but I got most of the worst scratches out.


The case is chrome plated base metal  The case back is stainless, screw down and marked Waltham, Base Metal Bezel, Stainless Steel back.  The crown is signed with a W and is easy to wind and set.  The movement is a 17 jewel Swiss, with incabloc.  The is some brassing on the crown, which is to expected.  The lugs are 17mm, which means you are squeeze in an 18mm leather band.  I have the watch on aged Fossil leather.  The movement keeps good time and seems to have at least 36 hours of reserve.  It tics at 18,000 beats per hour.  The date is semi quick-set, using alternating between 10:00 and midnight.


This is a classic looking watch, but may be a little small for modern tastes, at 34mm. Luckily, with my smaller wrists, it looks fine.  It has held up quite well, and looks good on the wrist.  It is one of the few Swiss made watches in my collection, and I enjoy wearing it in my rotation of watches.  It does get at least  one or two days of wear a month.  I have about four Walthams  in rotation in my collection, and I am happy with every one of them.

Case: 34mm,  chrome plated base metal.
Back: Stainless Steel, screw down
Crystal: Acrylic, domed.
Movement: Waltham 18,000 BPH movement, 7 jewels Swiss Made, hand wind.
Complications: Date.
Other: On Fossil leather band,  17 mm lugs.

Watch Review Seiko SSB041

Been slacking on the watch reviews, but with my just passed birthday, I received two new watches, and I have had one in my watch box that deserves some attention. Interestingly, they are all Seiko movement chronographs, so I get to compare and contrast. This is article one of three.


First off is a watch my lovely wife got for me, a brown Seiko chronograph, the SSB041. This is my first Seiko branded, quartz chronograph. I wanted a brown dialed watch, since I didn’t have any in that color, and I wanted a chronograph, with a 1/5 of a second feature, and a tachymeter scale. This watch fits the bill nicely.


The dial is a radial sunburst brown which shifts colors depending on illumination. The outer tachymeter chapter ring is in a matte finishing and compliments the dial. The watch has three sub dials. At the nine o’clock position minutes accumulator for the chronograph function. At the six o’clock position is the running seconds dial, and at the three o’clock position is a 24 hour dial. Each of the sub dials uses a simple, white painted stick hand which contrasts very well against the dial.  The hour and minute hands are dauphin style with a white stripe running down the center.  The 1/5 second chronograph hand is a simple stick with a large tail.  This tail is needed  for the fly-back mechanism.  The hour markers are simple, highly polished sticks.  The date window is at the 4:30 position.  Overall, the dial is relatively uncluttered for a chronograph and is well balanced. There is no luminous material.

The movement is a 1/5 of a second, 1 hour fly-back movement.   The upper pusher starts and stops the chronograph, and the lower pusher resets.  The hands fly back instantly to 0, and do not step back meaning it is done mechanically, not with stepper motors. When activated the chronograph hand advances in very even, 1/5 of a second steps, very closely resembling a mechanical chronograph.

The crystal is flat Hardlex, typical of Seiko and covers the tachymeter scale and is held down with a polished bezel.


The case is stainless steel, 40mm in diameter.  Brush on top with a high polish on the sides.  The case back is stainless and screw down and marked with the usual Seiko, 10ATM water resistance.  The quality is typical Seiko, very very good for the price point.  The crown in unsigned, but large and easy to use.  The pushers are polished and have a solid click when depressed.  The lugs are 20mm to make for easy bracelet to strap swaps.  The bracelet is a obviously inspired by Omega Speedmaster bracelets with a combination of polished and brushed links.  The bracelet tapers to 18mm at the clasp.  The bracelet is folded links, with a brushed finish on the sides.  A solid link bracelet would be nice, but as is typical, would not be found in a watch at this price point.  It does not grab hairs and is good quality with only minor squeaks.  The end links are hollow.


The deployant clasp is a two push button design without a safety lock.  It is marked deeply with Seiko and has a brushed finish.  As you can see in photo above, you can see the alternating polished and brushed finish very reminiscent of Omega bracelets.  It has three micro adjustment holes, making for easy sizing.

Overall, this is a very easy watch to live with, and my first new Quartz watch in a long time.  Honestly, I only trust one brand of quartz watches, and that is Seiko.  The movement is made in Japan and so far is dead on accuracy wise.  The 1/5 of a second tic is a great way to get a mechanical look without the mechanical price.  Startlingly, the Seiko has a cleaner sweep chronograph than my Omega!  (Which tends to have some jitter, typical of 7750 based chronographs.)  The watch is well balanced and not terribly large.  If you have typical or smaller wrists, this watch will wear well.  I am looking forward to years of trouble free accuracy and reliability.  Again, thank you to my wife for another wonderful watch.

Case: 40mm diameter, stainless steel, 100m water resistance.
Back: Stainless Steel, screw down.
Crystal: Hardlex, flat.
Movement: Battery Operated Quartz, 6T62, Seiko in-house design. 1 hour, 1/5 second chronograph.
Complications:  Date, 1/5 second 1 hour chronograph, 24 hour indicator.
Other: 20mm folded link bracelet, stainless steel.

Watch Review, Seiko SARY005

Seiko SARY005, Presage, Silver Dial

For our upcoming 10th wedding anniversary and Christmas 2012, my beautiful wife gave me this Seiko Automatic dress watch, the SARY005 aka SRP119J1.  It is a watch designed for the Japanese domestic market and, to be honest, the photos really don’t do it justice.  First, let’s start with the dial.

It is an extremely detailed dial, the center is intersecting circles.   Moving outward are concentric circles so fine they looks like the grooves in a compact disk or DVD.   They even produce rainbows when twisted in the light.  Finally, the minute chapter ring is separated by a precision ring and has a brushed finish.  There is a date window at the three O’clock position.

The hour markers are Roman numerals and applied.  They are the most clear cut markers I have seen on any watch, with laser sharp edges.  They have a mirror polish and stand out shockingly well against the dial.  The minute chapter ring uses Arabic numbers every five minutes and they are a subtle blue to match the hands.  Between the number markers are six tic marks between two printed rings.  These match exactly with the 1/6th of the second sweep of the second hand.

The hands are an iridescent blued steel, Seiko dauphine.  Seiko has their own version with the tail squared off.   The minute and seconds hand extend almost to the chapter ring, making it very easy to tell the time and are almost twice the length of the hour hand.  The seconds hand is stick with a very long tail.  The tail ends with a ring which perfectly bisects the transition between the inner and outer part of the dial and add a lot to character of the watch.  There is no luminescent material anywhere on this watch.

Next up we have the case, crystal, and crown.  The crystal is flat sapphire with what appears to be anti-reflective coating.  It is totally invisible at most angles.  It is held in place with a very unique bezel I have never seen before.  It is narrower at the top and flares out to the diameter of the case.  The case is 40mm in diameter, but wears surprisingly small with the very down turned lugs.  The lugs are 20mm and are drilled through, making band replacements much easier.  I like 39 to 40mm watches, just the right size for smaller wrists.  The crown is unsigned, but very easy to wind the watch with.  Oh yes, you can actually hand wind this watch. The case is stainless steel, 10 ATM water resistant.  The bezel and top  of the watch are polished , the sides are brushed from top to bottom.

Continuing to the back and bracelet, the case back is solid stainless steel, screw down, and simply marked SEIKO, Sapphire crystal, Made in Japan with the case number, serial number, and water resistance of 10 Bar.  It would of been nice to have a transparent back, but the simple steel keeps the watch thinner and has a timeless quality to it.  The bracelet is an elegant brushed and polished affair, with a signed two button clasp.   The bracelet also has solid end links, so no squeaks or wobbles there.  It is very flexible and comfortable to wear and is only second to my Omega in quality.

Beating at 21600BPH inside the case is a newer in-house Seiko movement, the 23 jewel 4R35.  This movement is a descendant of the 7S36, but adds the very important hand-winding and hacking functions.   This is an significant upgrade to compete against ETA and Miyota automatics, which can at least hand wind, and usually hack (second hand stop).  The accuracy rating is pretty low, but so far I am running a very consistent +9 seconds a day.  Power reserve is 41+ hours, same as the 7S series, but at least you can hand-wind it and don’t have to use the backwards pressure trick to stop the seconds hand.   I really hope Seiko converts all of their 5’s to this more practical design.

To sum it all up, this is a very elegant, high quality Seiko that moves from being a watch to a ‘timepiece.’  Side by side against my Omega, which costs more than 10 times as much, it looks just as good, or better made.  One thing is certain, it is much easier to read and more manageable on the wrist.  The styling is a pure, modern dress watch with a definite nod towards Cartier styling.  The size is  just right and I love wearing it.

Case: 39.5 mm diameter, 11mm thick, Stainless Steel.  10 Bar water resistance.
Back:  Solid Stainless Steel, screw down.
Crystal: Sapphire, flat, with anti-reflective coating.
Movement: SEIKO 4R35, 23 jewel automatic,  hand winds and hacks.
Complications: Date
Other:  On solid end link stainless bracelet.

Watch Review, Rothco Vietnam Era Homage

Rothco Vietnam Era Hand-wound homage.

For my birthday I received a nice little gift, an homage to US Vietnam era mechanical watch, wrist.  The watch came in this simple tin, complete with military specification numbers.  I am sure it is all for show, since this watch was made in China.

Opening the tin revealed this:


A simple, clean, easy to read watch.  The dial has Arabic 1 through 12 markers in dark green and 13 through 24 in white.  The dial is black.  The hands are simple sticks with lume.  There are also lume pips at every hour mark.  There is no marking on the dial as to brand name, which is a nice touch.  Just Mechanical. 3ATM Water Resistant, and a small Made in China along the bottom of the dial.  There is a small date window at 3 O’clock.  The crystal is acrylic and lightly domed, consistent with a Vietnam era watch.

The case appears to be painted steel or base metal, with a stainless steel back.   It is a screw back, stainless steel.  Again, simply marked Mechanical Movement, Stainless Steel Back, 3ATM water resistance.  Never seen a watch with no branding whatsoever.    I have not looked at the movement, but my best guess would be a DG2833, which has all the features of this watch, hand-wound only, 21,600 BPH, Chinese made, 17 jewels,  and the font of the date window matches.  A nice featre is that is a hacking movement, so it the movement stops when you pull the crown.  This originated with military watches and is used to co-ordinate time among members of a platoon, etc.  The crown is unsigned and chrome plated.

The watch comes on a comfortable, wide weave nylon band.  The buckle is unsigned and is also chrome plated.  It is double thickness and should last for years.

Overall, this a great watch for the money.  It is easy to read and keeps extremely accurate time, less than +/-5 seconds a day when wound every morning.  Power reserve seems very good as well, I have not had it wind all the way down yet, but I know it is over 38 hours.  The luminous material is nothing to write home about, but the Omega and Seiko watches have spoiled me.  I have always loved the look of the Vietnam era wrist watch, but never wanted to pay the money commanded by the real deal.  This watch is a throwback to when watches were all mechanical and simpler.  No battery to change, no clutter on the dial, and you have to wind it every day.  It has spent a lot of time on my wrist over the past few weeks and it is a good addition to my collection.

Case: 35mm diameter, painted metal, 3ATM water resistance.
Back: Stainless Steel back, screw down.
Crystal: Acrylic, Lightly Domed.
Movement: Hand-Wound, DG2833, 21,600 BPH.
Complications: Date
Other: Luminous hands and markers.

Watch Review: Vintage TIMEX 37319

TIMEX 37316 from 1979


Here is a rare item in my collection, an all Stainless Steel TIMEX automatic, from 1979.  This watch was made just before TIMEX started transitioning all of its watches to quartz in the early 1980’s.  It is a shame, really, TIMEX was very good at making reliable, accurate, and durable pin-lever automatics.  This particular watch is nice step up from a typical TIMEX, since it has an all stainless case, as opposed to plated base metal.

The dial is a pale blue with stick hands.  The second hand is jet black and stands out well against the dial.  The hour markers are applied, mirrored rectangles with a lume pip just inside the bezel.  The hands are also lumed, but, the lume is almost totally dead after 33 years.  The dial design is fairly clean, with just Timex Automatic and Water Resistant on the dial.  The watch also has a large day and date display, making it a very practical daily timepiece.  The crystal appears to be lightly domed acrylic, but it may be glass, since there are no scratches on it.

The case is a modern 40mm diameter with 20mm lugs.  The shape has some 70’s influence, but it is very modern looking for a 33 year old watch.   At the lugs, there is no need for end pieces, it was designed for strait ends or straps.  The sides of the case have a high polish and where the end pieces would be are brushed steel.  The tooling marks are very even and have a higher level of finish.  The crown is unsigned, but easy to use and hand-wind.  The case back is screw down, which is a nice touch.  The movement is probably typical TIMEX pin-lever, but I have not opened up the case to find out.  If it works and keeps good time, I leave well enough alone.

This particular watch is on the original TIMEX stainless steel folded metal bracelet.  It was pretty grimy when I got it, but it cleaned  up beautifully and has minimal band stretch.  I also really like the signed TIMEX clasp.  Speaking of the clasp,  it has eight micro adjustment holes!  This is great because I didn’t need to resize the bracelet by removing any links, just had to move it to the proper sizing hole.  The clasp works well and is very secure feeling, even without a flip safety clasp.

Overall, this is a solid, modern watch that keeps good time and stands out just enough, but doesn’t scream at you.  The watch has held up very well, even though it had signs of being a daily wear watch for a few years.  I don’t wear this one as often as I should, and writing the review has prompted me into getting this dependable timepiece into my normal rotation.


Case: 40mm, stainless steel, 20mm lugs.

Back: Stainless screw down, Marked Water Resistant, Automatic, Stainless Steel.

Crystal: Acrylic? with a light dome.

Movement: Automatic with hand winding, Timex no-jewel pin lever escapement. Caliber 32? 18000 BPH.
