About Wittnauer Vintage Ivory Dial Manual Wind Pre-Owned Mens Watch
Founded by Swiss immigrant Albert Wittnauer in New York City, the Wittnauer Watch Co.  became a true watch company in 1880, when the brand was officially introduced. Albert, along with his brother Louis (and later Emile) imported complete watches or just mechanisms from its Geneva, Switzerland factory.

 

By the 20th century they were firmly established as providing watches, chronometers and military timing devices to the military, famed early explorers and the general public, and are on record for producing the first waterproof watch called the “All Proof” in 1918. Long associated with the Longines Watch Co. via a U.S. partnership the firm is now owned by Bulova, its one time competitor.

VINTAGE WATCHES ARE GENERATING MORE INTEREST OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS SINCE COLLECTORS REALIZE AND APPRECIATE THEIR QUALITY. THE GOOD LOOKING VINTAGE ONES ARE BEING SNAPPED UP AND ADDED TO COLLECTIONS AND ARE BEING WORN. THESE VINTAGE WATCHES ARE A BARGAIN WHEN YOU CONSIDER THE COST OF PRODUCING A COMPARABLE WATCH WITH A HIGH GRADE MOVEMENT. THIS IS A VERY NICE EXAMPLE OF A VINTAGE SWISS WATCH WHICH WOULD MAKE AN INTERESTING EXAMPLE FOR ANY COLLECTION OR JUST BE FUN TO WEAR AS YOUR PERSONAL TIMEPIECE.

 

BECAUSE OLDER, VINTAGE, WRISTWATCHES WERE MADE SMALLER THAN WATCHES MADE TODAY, MEN OR WOMEN CAN WEAR THIS AND WOULD LOOK FABULOUS.

 

Vintage watches may gain or lose a small amount of time per day as they do not keep quartz accuracy. Also, because most vintage watches being offered are between 40-70 years old, small imperfections, scratches, and wear are to be expected.

 

A Word About Mechanical Watches: All mechanical watches, whether manual or automatic wind, will need periodic servicing simply due to the friction of its moving parts. I time all watches for at least 48 hours prior to listing and 12 hours prior to shipment. If it doesn't maintain acceptable accuracy, or function properly, I won't ship it and the buyer will receive a refund.

 

Water resistance is not guaranteed on vintage or pre-owned wristwatches. Have seals and gaskets checked by a watchmaker before submerging in water, swimming, or showering

 

IT IS MY HOPE THAT ALL OF MY ITEMS WILL GO TO PEOPLE WHO WILL ENJOY AND APPRECIATE THEM. I WILL GLADLY ACCEPT A RETURN, OR TAKE CARE OF A PROBLEM, IF I MAKE A GROSS ERROR IN THE DESCRIPTION. IF I HAVE MADE NO GROSS ERRORS, THE ITEM IS A FINAL SALE. BUYERS REMORSE IS NOT A VALID REASON FOR A RETURN. THIS IS MERELY DUE TO THE ITEMS BEING ANTIQUES, VINTAGE, OR PRE-OWNED.
