Helbros is owned by Jules Jurgensen. They are the value/affordable line similar to the ESQ to Movado relationship except they have had the relationship since 1913. Helbros made some watches themselves but were much more of an assembler/marketer than a manufacturer. Because of contract manufacturing you can find vintage Helbros watches from Germany, Switzerland, and even a few from France. At its height, Helbros was a major US watch company. In 1963, Elgin National Watch Co announced the acquisition of the Helbros Watch Co and has operated it as a division of Elgin.
I am a watch collector as well as a buyer and seller of new, pre-owned, antique, and vintage watches
I only sell genuine, authentic, watches in "Good" to "Pristine" condition
Vintage watch outlet is not a marketplace, we own every watch that we sell
It is rare to find one of these 40+ year old watches in this clean condition. Especially this Helbros that looks like a homage to the classic Jaeger LeCoultre Galaxy Mystery Dial Watch. This timepiece has simulated diamond hour markers and floating simulated diamonds for hands. A poor man’s version of the classic that was made with solid gold and real diamonds.
Spectacular Mystery Dial is the highlight of this watch. Two simulated diamonds seem to float creating the Mystery Dial effect. The hour markers are simulated diamonds as well.
This is a collectible Swiss made Helbros and finding it in this condition is very rare. This is one timepiece that will be noticed and admired without doubt. Looks fantastic even today. It will make an admirable addition to any vintage watch collection.

This is a vintage used watch. It has lived a life before you, so you should not expect it to be new and flawless. If you want a flawless new watch, please do not buy this. If you want a piece of history in the form of a nice vintage piece, or possibly a dated inscription on the case back, then this may be right for you. Because most vintage watches being offered are between 30-70 years old, small imperfections, scratches, and wear are to be expected
Buying a pre-owned watch is like buying a pre-owned car....it is all about condition, condition, condition!
Water resistance is not guaranteed on vintage or pre-owned watches unless otherwise stated in the listing
Please note that all pictures are taken on the macro setting. This makes even the slightest imperfections, shadows during photography, and specks of dust appear much more prominent even though they are often not visible without magnification
A careful shopper who takes the time to study the photos, reads the entire description, and asks pertinent questions is our best customer
You will be pleasantly surprised and receive many compliments when wearing your watch. There is nothing that draws attention quite like a stunning watch
Because older vintage wristwatches were made smaller than watches made today, men or women can wear this and would look fabulous on your wrist
