Summer is coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean your watch collecting has to. This week we have a variety of watches including a 1950s IWC dress watch, a 1960s Jaeger Diver “20 ATM,” and a Tudor Submariner 79090. Read on to see the complete offering.
1938 Omega ‘Flying Saucer’ Reference CK2013
The “disco volante” or “flying saucer” was a bold design aesthetic in the 1930s. This Omega CK2013 showcases the design very nicely with its 39mm thin round case shape and flattened bezel. This example features a gorgeous silvered dial and is powered by the manual-winding caliber 26.5 SOB T2. Click here for the full listing.
1960s Jaeger Diver ’20 ATM’
While this might seem like a regular old dive watch, it’s not. Unlike Jaeger’s other dive watches, the Polaris and Deep Sea Alarm, this diver is smaller (37mm), simpler, and more rare. Why? Because it was assembled in the Jaeger factory in Levallois-Perret right outside of Paris. Read on for the full listing, or click here for the an in-depth review in the Shop Journal.
1989 Tudor Submariner Reference 79090
Despite being Rolex’s kid brother, Tudor always pulls out all the stops. This Submariner 79090 is no different. With its gorgeous patina and Mercedes-style hands this Tudor Submariner would look great on any wrist, in or out of the water (though we don’t advise swimming with a leather strap, and a vintage watch). Furthermore this watch is powered by the automatic caliber ETA 2824-2, both reliable and cost-efficient. You can read the full listing here.
That’s not all! We have a 1950s IWC in rose gold, a 1970s Universal Genve Unisonic with box, a 1972 Bulova “F” Chronograph, and a 1973 Benrus Type II for the U.S. Military.
