【Description】

この時計はチャンピオンという当時のミドルクラスのラインの中で、アウトドア仕様のスポーツ系ウォッチの一つとして作られました。

アルピニストというモデル、現在はPROSPEXシリーズの一つとして登山家に向けた時計となっています。

アルピニストの系譜は1960年のローレル アルピニストから始まり、この時計が3代目です。

90年代にはデザインこそ少し違うものの機械式として復刻され、今でも一定の人気があります。

防水仕様の裏蓋には山脈の刻印があり、針は夜光塗料が塗られています。

中でも秒針は非常に特徴があり、針の先端に逆三角形の夜光塗料が付いているという何とも説明し難い形状をしてます。

ダイアルデザインは外周がルーレットのポケットのようになったモノクロデザインで、これがかなり格好良いんです。

見た目のインパクトからか、特に海外で人気のあるヴィンテージセイコーの1つとなっています。

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.
