As you may know, last week we were busy at SIHH reporting on all the new releases, but this week we are back with some great vintage pieces for you. The timepieces range from simple two-hand dress watches to classic multi-scale chronographs, with brands like Rolex, Omega, and Jaeger-LeCoultre all represented. Read on to see the full selection.
1940s Eberhard & Co. Chronograph
This Eberhard & Co. chronograph is special not only because it is a tool watch produced in yellow gold, but also because the case was incredibly large for the time, measuring 40mm in diameter. This Pre-Extra Fort chronograph is powered by the caliber 16000 movement and features a hinged caseback. You can read more about this watch here.
1969 Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox ‘Speed Beat’
This Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox “Speed Beat” is just like a standard Memovox alarm watch, but with a higher frequency movement. The Speed Beat is powered by the caliber 916, which beats at 28,000 vph, and this example comes on a steel bracelet too. Read more about this watch here.
1970s Omega Seamaster Soccer Timer Reference 145.019
The Seamaster Soccer Timer reference 145.019 is certainly an unusual watch with its bright and bold color scheme. The unusual configuration of the sub-registers allows for both normal chronograph timing, and measuring a full half of a soccer match, which is a crazy cool function. You can read the full description here.
And There’s More
In addition to the three highlights listed above, we also have a 1950s Piaget reference 904 in white gold, a 1960s Eberhard & Co. Contodat, a 1960s Eterna KonTiki in steel, and a 1971 Rolex Datejust Reference 16000.
