Mathey-Tissot 3-register “Type XX”
This Mathey-Tissot 3-register “Type XX” come from the original owner. While many of these Type XXs have significant loss of lume in the hands, and also discoloration of the dial lume. Fortunately this example doesn’t exhibit either of those traits, and remains a well-cared-for watch with a clean dial and light wear to the case, but remaining unpolished.
This flyback chronograph features a 30-minute register, though featuring the register design commonly thought of as 15. This rare 3-register “Type XX” comes from Mathey-Tissot, the manufacturer of this same watch under branding of both Breguet (pieces are *far* more common), and also the under the Girard-Perregaux brand.
The watch was last serviced by Grand Central Watch in May 2018.

Heuer 2447D

I purchased this Heuer 2447D in 2017 through a seller in Australia who acquired the watch from the family of the original owner. The watch is in exceptional condition and unpolished. All lume plots full with exception of at 3 o’clock (common), with matching hands. Serviced by Chronodeco in 2017. It’s a beautiful watch and easy to wear.

This piece has the first-execution dial as shown with index marks and non-bevelled (“cropped 50”) metallic starbust dial.

These Carreras generally are found with polished cases, greatly changing their appearance.

IWC Cal 852

I purchased this watch from a dealer in 2018. This watch is an incredibly crisp and original example of the IWC Cal 852 (belonging to the Cal. 85 series developed by Albert Pellaton at IWC). Service history is unknown, but the watch is keeping time and all functions correctly, so I decided against what I believe would be an unneeded service.

I’ve tried to picture the case clearly below so you can see how crisp it is.

Wittnauer 242T

I have owned this exceptional Wittnauer 242T since 2017, purchased from a collector in the midwest. Service history was unknown prior to purchase, so I had it serviced in December 2017.

This watch is unpolished, all original parts, lume plots full and match the hands, all original. Flawless dial. With most 242Ts you will see heavily cracked lume (most common is cracking in the chrono hand lollipop, and then at the edges along with discoloration for the main hands), if original lume at all. As a tool watch, you will also find them heavily polished, with discoloration on the dial/dial plots.

One of the best Wittnauer 242Ts you will find.
