Vintage Caravelle Day-Date Pilot Watch withMint Dial, Patina, Divers All SS Case
This vintage Caravelle has a pristine matte black “T SWISS T” signed dial that is free of any visible scratches, tool marks, chipping or defects. The original tritium on the dial and hands, which remains fully intact, has aged to a perfectly matching warm and inviting golden buttermilk patina. The seconds hand is unique, tipped with what appears to be an airplane. While the tritium on the dial no longer glows after being exposed to bright light the tritium on the hands emits a quick-burst glow that dissipates quickly. The bezel, which rotates smoothly bidirectionally, is in near mint condition and the inverted triangle has retained its original lume that has gracefully aged to a butterscotch hue. The massive all stainless steel case is in wonderful shape showing very little wear and free of any visibly significant dents or dings. The outside of the case back is stamped CARAVELLE – WATER RESISTANT AUTOMATIC STAINLESS STEEL. While the integrity of the top hat crystal appears intact it is significantly scratched and should be replaced if for no other reason than to bring out the beauty of the dial and patina. The case back shows no signs of ever having been removed and is torqued to tightly for me risk causing damage. And considering that this watch keeps as good of time as any watch I’ve owned with an incredible power reserve, the reward of showing the movement is outweighed by the risk of doing so. The quickset date function works flawlessly by manually rolling over a new date and then moving the hour hand repeatedly between the 20.5 and 24 hour marks until the desired date has been reached. After winding the non-screwdown crown 39 full revolutions the movement had a healthy power reserve of approximately 41 hours. Given that this watch is approximately 45 years old and considering that it has an unknown service history (given that the case back shows no signs of ever having been removed and that it is torqued to what feels like factory specs, it’s probable that the movement has never been serviced), a complete overhaul is suggested. This watch measures approximately 42 mm excluding the crown, approximately 43.5 mm including the crown and approximately 20 mm between the lugs. Case thickness, measured from the bottom of the case back to the top of the bezel, is approximately 9.5 mm. Including the crystal thickness measures approximately 11.5 mm. Although the movement runs strong and keeps near perfect time, given the vintage nature of this watch and that is likely has never been serviced, a complete overhaul is recommended. As such there are no warranties, express or implied, attached with the sale of this watch. Vintage means old and while my personal belief is that old-school means better quality and workmanship, things can and do go wrong from time to time. Any servicing costs going forward are your responsibility.
