【Description】

「エース」は1958年に発売され、当時の国産時計としては最も売れた「デラックス」の廉価モデルという位置付けです。

ムーブメントの一部を簡略化し、生産の合理化を図ることで価格を下げて若い世代向けに販売されました。

紳士用時計のデラックスと比べると派手な文字盤が多く、この時計のようなものは変わり文字盤という名が付いて流通しています。

ダイアルデザインはグレーとシルバーの幾何的なデザイン、針は太めのドーフィンハンドとなっています。

針、ケースともにゴールドカラーで、ダイアルと上手くマッチしているような感じがするのは自分だけでしょうか。

手元で遊びを入れる際にはアリ、という1本です。

【Warranty】

2018年12月にOH済み。6ヶ月保証となります。
OH時にデッドストック品のリューズと時分針に交換済み。

    About Service
    Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

    The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
    Separate the case and movement.
    Disassemble the movement
    Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
    Cleaning by a special machine
    Lubrication and assembly
    6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
    7. Adjustment and running test
    This is the process of the watchmaking process.

    Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

    Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

    We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


    About new finishing (polishing)

    Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

    At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

    Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

    The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

    Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

    The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

    It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

    Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

    We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
