Wyler Automatic late 70’s

 

   Wyler is a little known brand but for me it holds a special place in my collection.  My father sold this brand in his small shop during the sixties.

It had a unique shock protection system where the balance wheel spokes where in the shape of a spiral in effect making the whole balance wheel a shock absorber. Wyler called their system incaflex.

This watch from the late 60’s has a stainless steel monocoque case with a gold plated bezel. It uses the very good gold plated ETA 2777 movement. This watch is signed five times including a watermark “w” in the centre of the glass.

A very nice watch.

I’m a horoligical “petrol head”! I love classical mechanical watches, not because they tell me the time, I can get the time from cheap quartz watches, my computer, phone, microwave or just about anywhere. I’m interested in the movements of watches, the aesthetics of case design and their construction, the history and the simple thrill of watching tiny, beautifully finished wheels, pinions and other parts turning and oscillating and marvelling at the craftsmanship that created it.
