Vintage automatic

Hello together,

I am considering buying my first VC and was wondering if anybody could shed a little bit of light on the model I am looking at :

Vintage automatic

I would place it somewhere in the 70's, but other than that wild guess I know nothing about it and the seller does not have much info either.

Thanks a lot - from a hopefully future VC owner

Hi Stefan and welcome to THL.

Don't know much about this reference but I can tell, the watch is good, correct and coeval (dial, case, crown and anything else I can see through the pictures available in the site, whose name is reported in the image you've posted).

Can't see the movement but it surely is a 1121 (K1121 perhaps, which means gyromax, that is a plus). Simply the movement is worth that price.

Of course you'll have to check case and movement conditions and consider, if you care, some other issues, like strap and buckle which are not original.

In short, if you like the watch, go for it.

By the way, it's always a good thing when the seller doesn't know what's in his hands cheeky

Thanks Roberto,

It looked pretty decent, and an automatic with date and no second was indeed taking me to the 1121, but since I did not see this particular model in ticktalk's phot galery I found it a good idea to ask here about it - maybe somebody knew something about it - even if at that time I have the impression that the variety of casing and models was very high. I'll try to seal the deal and keep you posted.

That should be your reference.

You're definitely welcome, please, keep us posted.

Dean's photo gallery and website are fantastic resources for vintage VC information, but even his tremendous accumulation of data is not comprehensive enough to cover all of VC.  blush

Nothing from your picture suggests anything unusual to me.  And I agree with both and you Roberto that it looks like a K1121 movement is inside.
