Now that quartz watches have been around for over 40 years shouldn't they also be classed as vintage?
I just finnished cleaning up this beautiful Certina watch and I love it to bits but I have put it up for sale as I don't see me as a collector, but I 'm having regrets for it's just special.
Sure it has scratches but that is part of it's history so I only clean metal but I do remove scratches from the crystal as you need to be able to use it as a watch.
I'm not telling where I'm selling it as this is not a add for my watches but just a homage to a great watch.
The movement is a 7 jewel ESA 952.111. One interesting thing is that it also has the ETA crest and soon ESA would be gone all together. The first generation of quartz movements almost always had a adjustment screw (the screw at the top in it's own holder) so you could make the watch run faster or slower, this was soon taken away so now only the finest movemnt has this faeture. You see the little arrow pointing at a small hole on the top of the movement? You press down in this hole to release the winding stem with crown.
