    Tressa Laser Beam

    Hi all, my first post here. I've just moved into analogue watches from digitals and jump hours and I really like the above watch - has anyone got any advice on it ie is it reliable and how much for a decent one?

    Hello Campbell,

    welcome here!
    A picture would really help to give you an advice. I know that some funky Tressas from the 70s had some good, reliable AS movements in, but I don't know the watch you mentioned.
    IIRC, normal Tressas go for typically 50 - 100 EUR in good condition, spacemans higher.

    Cheers,

    Axel

    Would this do - it's not the actual watch but it's identical.

    Hello Campbell,

    yes that's a AS movement. They are very robust and rliable.
    I would expect a sales price around 50 EUR on German ebay, but I don't know how they sell in the UK (though prices are not really predictable).
    However, it is a very nice watch and I guess I have to keep my eyes open.

    Cheers,

    Axel

    Thanks Axel - I suspect this is the first of many mechanicals from the 60's and 70's............

    I can see this is an old Thread, but does any one know why this model has the name: "Laser Beam?"
    I like the looks of these watches, but when laser beam doesn't make any sense then I would appreciate the dial less. The only explanation I can think of is that it is made in the period where Quartz watches were taking over the market. The two most beautiful things of mechanical watches is that they 'tick' and got a sweeping second. I can imagine "laser beam" is a link to this last characteristic, especially when the second hand is coloured red (what some do have).

    Hope that any one knows the real explanation of the name "Laser beam"...

    Thanks,
    Paul
