Refined Black Starr and Frost Gold Watch, 1970's

About

Lighting and reflection may show uneven gold on the case of this vintage watch. In actualtiy, the case and face are perfectly even and clean. Photography is tricky. Remember when a watch was to be wound by hand or is this concept foreign to you? Winding kind of gives you a daily appreciation of your watch and an intimacy with time. The gold case and a gold face are a refined combination in this Black Starr and Frost timepiece from 1970.
Black Starr and Frost, is a fine silver and gold specialty manufacturer that began business in the 1870's. This watch is a tank style similar to but larger than the beautiful Cartier tank watch. Size and clarity make it easy to read the Roman Numerals. There are no batteries involved. You provide the winding power. The case and face are slim and attached to a new genuine "special" lizard strap. In working order, it is a handsome dress watch to don when you want to transcend time and trend and it is a lighter alternative for the days when you wish a change from today's heavy timepieces. Excellent working condition. Case 1 1/2 inches high by 14/16th of an inch wide
