Vintage Wrist Watch  

 Sears & Roebuck Alarm Watch

 

 

 

In 1886 Richard W. Sears resigned as a Railroad Agent and founded the R.W. Sears Watch Company in Chicago Illinois.

In 1887 Alvah C. Roebuck joins Sears after answering a newspaper ad for a watch repairman.

Sears & Roebuck started their company selling watches, but also began selling diamonds & jewelry. They constantly expanded the merchandise they sold to become a full service Department Store.

 

This particular watch is a "mid-size or 3/4 size" wrist watch. Nearly all Divers Style or Alarm watches are large, bulky or clunky timepieces. This mid-size Diver Style Alarm watch not so bulky and measures only The case measures 32.25mm wide (not counting dual stems or crowns) by 39.60mm lug to lug making this a great watch for either male or female that wants the "sporty" styling without all of the bulk of divers watches or alarm watches. The outer black enameled rotating bezel can be turned either way. 

 

 

All Original Swiss made pin-lever Jeweled Quality Precision Manual-Wind Movement with the upper crown (at the 2:00 position) for winding up and setting the time, and the lower crown (at the 4:00 position) for winding and setting the alarm feature. The time portion and the alarm have separate mainsprings and will work independent of each other.  

MINT condition All Original dial. This easy read dial features flat matte black enameled background with bold white enameled 1-12 Arabic numbers, Sears, Alarm, Swiss, inner minutes track & outer seconds track. The tiny abrasion is NOT on the mint condition dial. It is on the crystal & has been "blow-up" at 1800% for our close up pictures.

This watch comes with a proper period piece padded & stitched calfskin strap.

Running great & keeping time!

Why take a chance buying watches from online auctions, 3rd parties, brokers or "middlemen" not knowing for sure if the watch will be in proper running order when you get it?  Buy direct from a Vintage & Classic timepiece specialist and play it SAFE!
