What I

Am Selling Is A


T Swiss Made T 17 Jewel Watch



This Men’s Waltham 17 Jewel T Swiss Made T mechanical  watch is in good used working condition showing the normal wear of scratches and scuffs associated to having been worn. This watch is vintage showing minor finish loss.  Prior to listing this watch was bench tested and appears to keep good time.


As with all mechanical watches

annual servicing is recommended and minor adjustments may be necessary to maintain accurate time keeping. Due to the age, being mechanical and the rigors of shipping it’s the buyers responsibility to have this service performed to ensure accurate time keeping.


The features of this watch are:


·      Analog readout

·      Polished steel base metal case with a stainless steel back

·      Polished steel hour and minute hands

·      Polished steel hour markers and numbers

·      17 Jewel mechanical Swiss made movement.

·      Water Resistant: Unknown: Please note this watch has not been water tested and should be serviced/tested by a qualified jeweler or watch maker before getting wet.


Please note this watch is not new, it’s used and meets e-Bays specifications for items listed in used condition. The item described and pictured is the item being sold.



Visually the acrylic lens/crystal on this watch is clear and easy to read the dial, please note there are some small scratches associated with general wear and a non leaking inclusion below the 6:00 where it reads T Swiss Made T. An inclusion usually forms inside the lens/crystal after an impact. Not to be mistaken with a crack that is external or a scratch that can be buffed out. The dial is in good condition with polished steel hour markers and numbers. In black lettering below the 12:00 it reads Waltham and below center it reads Incabloc 17 Jewels and below the 6:00 it reads T Swiss made T. The hour and minute hands are polished steel.



The band for this watch is a brown leather band with white stitching that measures approximately 9” from its traditional buckle to tip. The lugs on this watch are standard lugs and will accommodate many different styles of bands.                     


Case/Bezel Dimensions

The approximate case diameter is 34mm (1  5/16”) measured from side to side not including crown or lugs by 10.5mm (7/16”) thick measured from the case back to the top of the lens.
