ORIGINAL 1970S RETRO WATCH

JUNGHANS MEGAQUARTZ REF 14JL15

A very collectible Junghans from a time when quartz watches had more than a cheap piece of plastic inside them. The model is known as Megaquartz or Astra, this is a new old stock that was not sold in the 1970s, and there may be fine storage marks but nothing of significance. Made in Germany and top quality. Junghans cal 667.20 which was cutting edge, using the latest technology in micro electronics and mechanics and part of the history of quartz watch development. These movements seem to run for ever so long as they have a new battery fitted. It has a rather handsome silver dial with chrome batons and hands. Furnished with date at 3 and capped with mineral glass crystal. The case is all stainless steel and a quite chunky and heavy. Its original strap long since deteriorated so it is fitted on a period style mesh bracelet and adjust up to a large 8" wrist. This watch is in perfect working order and holding time very well. A great addition to any retro collection and a rare find that reflects the technology of its time and tells a little about history.

Watch dimensions
Top case to bottom 41mm, side to side (without crown) 36mm, thickness (crystal to back cover) 11.5mm.

Price 165 + postage
