Wittnauer R2-D2 Model?

New postby 4thdimension » Thu Oct 11, 2012 5:02 am

A friend had this 17jewel automatic Wittnauer at our last Mart. The case was like new, the dial was a bit sunned, the crystal was fine ( :D ) and the move was in good shape. Is this weird enough for anyone's taste here? -Cort

Hmm, I think I meant C3PO...

I celebrate the unusual, and after some years so do some collectors. It's of its time and, sooner or later, watches that represent something of the time when they were made will increase in value.

Any idea how old it is, Cort?

I'd guess ca. 1977 - about when Star Wars came out... That would be a tough crystal to find I think. -Cort

Very nice! This is definitely something I'd buy (at the right price).
