Early Wyler Life-Guard c. 1965. Originally marketed as a diver and sports watch with features such as water resistance to 20 Atmospheres, and Wyler's patented shock-resistant Incaflex balance system.

First off, there are two issues with this watch. At some point in its forty-nine year history, the left lower lug was bent inward. How this happened is a mystery to me. It does not however, affect wearability. Also, although the hand winding movement runs, keeps time, and has decent power reserve, there is no stop tension when winding. This could be caused by a slipping mainspring or loose catch on the barrel. Obviously, it would benefit from a service but can be worn as is.

That being said, this is actually a pretty cool vintage watch. The all stainless case measures 35mm excluding the large original signed crown. There are various dings and scratches on the bezel, and some pitting on the case back. The original dial shows patina with some lume loss at the 4 o'clock marker. The original hands are in good condition, and are an interesting contrast to the more formal dial. There are minor scratches on the high dome crystal. Comes on a black one-piece NATO, and in its rare original box. Sold as is.

Price includes CONUS shipping. International at cost. Contact steveDOToliverioATgmailDOTcom or PM if interested. SOLD
