Look at this stunning Certina New Art. This handsome dresswatch was made in the era that supersonic planes like the concord were being developed. Therefore, the futuristic plane on the casebook doesn’t come as a surprise. A beautiful testimonial to an era when civil aviation was taking huge leaps forward. The monocoque case has no caseback, the movement is installed through the from and the case is sealed with the crystal. The chances of moisture into the case were smaller since there is no caseback that needs to be sealed. (please note we don’t guarantee water resistance on any vintage watch). This watch can be very well compared with the Omega Seamaster De Ville, both in design and build quality. The movement is the in-house caliber 26-661, a 17 jewel in-house manually wound movement with date. I personally love these vintage Certina movement for their great design and fantastic finishing. These movement can easily be compared to Omega, Zenith and Longines from the same era.
There are many varieties of gold capped watches, but this Certina New Art combines the best of both worlds (stainless steel and gold).The case is made from stainless steel, with a beautiful caseback. The top of the lugs have a thick layer of solid gold, just on the top of the lugs. The bezel is also made from solid gold. Therefore, the watch looks like a solid gold watch when worn, but doesn’t come with the price tag of a solid gold watch.
What makes this watch outstanding is the fantastic condition. The case us just razor sharp, with only very slight signs of use. The original Certina signed crown still feels sharp, probably because it was used very little to wind the watch. The linnen dial is original and in like new condition with no damage of ageing. The hands also show very little signs of ageing. The movement is in crisp and clean condition and has off course been fully overhauled. The watch comes with 12-months warranty.
What we love:
-excellent condition all the way
-beautiful futuristic caseback
-linnen dial in mint condition
