This vintage Unitas mens watch with a 17 Jewel Swiss automatic movement, serviced and in working order. The dial is original with the watch and although it does have some small marks, it does have a lovely aged patina.
This is a small mens watch from the 1950's that measures 30mm excluding the crown or 32.5mm including the crown and therefore would suit anyone with a smaller wrist size or as a ladies watch too.
Restored to its original condition with lasting quality, it is sure to be
an eye-catching piece.

As with all vintage watches, there will be signs of genuine wear and use. These
really enhance the beauty of these watches as they are evidence of a history.
Every blemish, every scratch is a nod to its past.
On this watch, we have noticed that the case has some marks and scratches
The crystal (acrylic face) has a couple of very minor blemishes that could not be eliminated. The dial, although in good condition for its age does have obvious signs of age and marks but this adds to its authenticity and appeal.
Note that the photos are photos of this particular watch and form part of the
