Points of Mention
This watch is sold as "Watch Only" and therefore comes with no Wyler box or paperwork. The watch comes paired on a well-suited leather strap. The watch is from Circa. 1970’s and is sold in worn, vintage condition, but an overall very fair original condition for its age. The watch comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.
Paul Wyler 1896 formed the Wyler Company. It was known for its durable and shockproof movements and models. Paul Wyler gained seven patents for his innovations. In 1927 he invented the "Incaflex balance spring", which was resistant to impact, and in 1932 he received for this, a patent. In the 1950s they even had an advertisement showing that a drop from a plane wouldn't even stop their watches, that's bold! But their most bold stunt was in 1956 when they threw two watches from the Eiffel Tower!
Here we have a 1970s 18ct Pink Gold Wyler Vetta Incaflex with a striking 33mm 18ct Pink Gold case. The case gently curves over your wrist with a lug to lug length of 39mm and a case thickness of just 8mm. Its “C” shape sides make it sit on your wrist like a cushion. On the right side is a signed crown. A domed crystal sits above a white dial. Slim gilt batons catch the light as you rotate your wrist. At 3 o’clock a framed date window. Thin pencil hands complemented by a tapered second hand complete this stunning sophisticated dress watch. At 12 o’clock an applied “Wyler-Vetta” with “Incaflex” printed underneath. On the reverse, a snap-off case back. Inside a Manually Wound ETA 2408, 18,000 beats per hour. The watch comes fitted on an 18mm leather strap with a "W" signed buckle.
I am delighted to be able to bring this 18ct Pink Gold Wyler to sale as I really do believe people often overlook these brands that are no longer around, but it's hard to understand why when you can get a solid 18ct Pink Gold watch with a reliable ETA inside! Especially with a case and design like this, it looks just as good today as it did on the wrist when it left the factory back in the 70s!
