FS: Vintage Watch Lot(3 Watches) $60 Shipped USA Only
Up for sale are 2 Men's vintage watches.
Up first is a 1961 Bulova Sea King in stainless steel. This is a mechanical watch (you have to wind it up). The watch works very well and was bought from my watch maker. He serviced it before it was put up for sale. It keeps great time and at 34mm diameter it looks good on the wrist. Watch has the normal wear and tear that most watches 56 years old would have. It still is in nice condition. The case, case back and crystal have minor wear and tear on them. In short a very good watch.
The second watch is a 1940's Elgin 19 mens watch. The watch has a case that is white gold filled. The watch has a nice raised crystal and runs well. This watch was also bought from my watch maker and has been serviced before it was sold. It keeps great time and looks great. it comes on a nice new dark green strap.

"Swatch" began development in the early 1980s, under the leadership of the then ETA SA's CEO, Ernst Thomke with a small team of watch engineers led by Elmar Mock and Jacques Müller.
Conceived at the beginning as a standard timekeeper in plastic, Franz Sprecher, a marketing consultant hired by Thomke to give the project an outsider's consideration, sought to create a trendy line of watches with a full brand identity and marketing concept.
Swatch was originally intended to re-capture entry level market share lost by Swiss manufacturers during the quartz crisis and the subsequent growth of Japanese companies such as Seiko and Citizen in the 1960s and 1970s, and to re-popularize analog watches at a time when digital watches had achieved wide popularity.
The first collection of twelve Swatch models was introduced on 1 March 1983 in Zürich, Switzerland. Initially the price ranged from CHF 39.90 to CHF 49.90 but was standardized to CHF 50.00 in autumn of the same year. Sales targets were set to one million timepieces for 1983 and 2.5 million the year after. With an aggressive marketing campaign and relatively low price for a Swiss-made watch, it gained instant popularity in its home market.[where?] Compared to conventional watches, a Swatch was 80% cheaper to produce by fully automating assembly and reducing the number of parts from the usual 91 or more to only 51 components.
