For sale is a gorgeous Cooper Submariner style wrist-watch. If you think a watch is just an instrument which tells the time, this auction is not for you! Nobody buys a mechanical watch just because they are concerned with telling time. By owning a timepiece which justifies its stand with it's patents, trademarks and logos in history , shows your stand in your recent time. Automatic watches stand for many things on the top of telling time. The craftsmanship in putting hundreds of tiny parts together in an aesthetical understanding which lasts for decades if not centuries, is a first hand proof of watchmaking. This one is a rare one to surface and apart from everything else, I love the full bezel markers. The case of the watch screams 1970’s. The times when the watchmakers of the Swiss Valleys were being challenged with the emerging Quartz technology. Many mechanical watch manufacturers went bankrupt and vanished , some emerged within others and survived to-day. It was also those days when Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Queen were raising. Star Wars and The Godfather were among the Hollywood revolutions in those days. Many say ‘ those were the days my friend ‘. The size of the case is 40mm. Screw in caseback is unmarked. The dial: is black, new condition The date function is quick –set, meaning you set the time from 20 to 24 o’clock and the date changes. If you want to set the day 3-5-10 days forth you repeat the process forth and back between 20 and 24 o’clock ( I mean 8-12 o’clock ). The movement: Automatic movement (no batteries required) The strap is a 20mm nylon nato in black. The dial and is signed ‘ Cooper ‘. For those who are not familiar with Cooper, its' enterprise has a rich tradition within England’s watch and jewellery sector. The bezel is black. Unidirectional functioning. With this mechanical beauty, water resistance is not guaranteed. The watch works well but COSC or quartz accuracy should not be expected. All custom fees, VAT or related import taxes are at the responsibility of the buyer. Payment via paypal within 3 days, shipping insured and signed for only.
