BWC Courage (NOS?)

£500.00

The Watch

BWC is a old watch company founded in 1924 and still makes watches today, BWC stands for Buttes Watch Company as the founder (Arthur Charlet) was born in Buttes, Switzerland. The company is most known for their chronographs from the 70s featuring Lemania and Landeron movements and often bright colours, which was very fitting for the time.

This model, also from the 70s, features a dial that has definitely stood the test of time. A beautiful silver tone with black subdial, dark hands and indices with a white second hand to contrast against the colours perfectly. I truly think this is a timeless design, very similar to the Heuer Carrera but in a lovely 35mm case which wears perfectly on the wrist. 

Points of Mention

This watch is titled (NOS?) as it is as close to New Old Stock you can get, it has been worn but very few times and has very few signs of wear on the polished case. The watch runs well though service history is unknown. I sold this exact watch last year to a collector who has now brought it back to me to sell for him to make room in his collection, he truly enjoyed his time with the watch and kept it in great condition.

Personal Note

I genuinely love the design of this watch and I think it's perfect for the person looking for a nice vintage watch that is in good condition but also could potentially pass as a modern design. If my budget was endless this would be staying with me and coming out on the odd occasion.
