Key Features

This vintage 1950’s military-style AVALON wristwatch is the perfect combo – a genuine vintage watch from the 50’s for an affordable price! The watch features a beautiful black dial with red star and lume numerals, even better looking in person than in the photos as it’s difficult to faithfully photograph a black-faced watch. The timepiece is of a relatively small size (32 mm diameter, 16 mm strap), a comfortable size and perfect for daily wear. The old radium lume paint has been replaced with a safe non-radium lume, aged to imitate a vintage appearance, and glows nicely even in half-light. In great rare condition, the original chrome plating is near perfect.

This timepiece has been serviced with full disassembly. There is a 6-month guarantee, subject to the usage and care guidelines. The watch comes with a new, 16 mm genuine leather black snakeskin style strap.
