A beautiful timepiece from the 1970s, Avia Olympic made in Switzerland. An elegant design with numerals and hands that pop from the characterful patina found on the case. Originally gold plated, the case has a hint of a copper coloured patina, working wonderfully with the brand new military inspired khaki green NATO strap. A characterful piece of mechanical history, designed for function and utility, with a natural patina unique to the age and origins of this beautiful wrist watch.
Old pre-owned watch, with a recently polished case. Please bare in mind as with all vintage items the watch will show signs of age and wear, but we believe this adds to the character and appeal of a piece of mechanical history to enjoy on the daily. Please take time to view the photographs for reference, or contact for further information and close up images.
Keeping good time for its age, within 1 min approx when tested to 24 Hours, requires movement through natural usage on the wrist to ensure consistent time keeping. Not sure of the watch’s last service, as with all vintage timepieces it might need a service to keep running over it’s long life, I cannot guarantee sustained functionality.
Fitted with a brand new aftermarket Nato G10 strap, inspired by the original British Military of Defence issued watch straps. The Nato G10 straps from inception, were designed to be both functional and fail safe. This strap is constructed from a woven nylon, with heat sealed edges and holes, complete with satin finish stainless steel buckle and hardware.
