Orvin Automatic

 

Orvin is a name that you probably don't know, and for good reason.  This was a trade name that was owned by Sears Roebuck & Co. so that they could import Swiss Watches under a name that was exclusive to them.  The good news for us today is that you can purchase an Orvin with Swiss accuracy and engineering at a price that won't break the bank.  You will have the secure knowledge that it is a timepiece that could cost twice as much with a more well-known name on the dial.  It is essentially a "Jeweler's Contract" watch, and this one is very nice.  Not only is it solid 14K gold but it is a full rotor Automatic that has a winding indicator complication.  As you rotate your wrist during your busy day the Oscillating Weight" rotates and "automatically" winds your mainspring for a very smooth delivery of power in the sweet spot of the mainspring.  The 14K solid gold case measures 35mm in diameter by 42mm lug to lug.  The seventeen jewel movement is in near mint condition and is winding, setting, and keeping time just like it did back in 1960 when it left Switzerland bound for our shores.  This is a fantastic buy for some lucky soul and, with our famous one year warranty for parts and labor, you may buy with confidence!
