Relide 1965c

DSCN1688 

This watch was made sometime in the mid sixties and until I aquired it, had never been
opened. I doubt if it’s even been worn!

Only the dial is signed but this watch is worthy of a place in my collection by virtue
of the superb compressor case and the toughest of all automatic movements, the
Felsa 4007

An ordinary looking watch but great quality and in pristine condition.

About robswatches

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.
