MILOS DOCTOR'S WRIST WATCH
Offered for sale is a neat precision made mechanical 'Doctor's Wrist Watch' by Milos - a brand of the Swiss Savoy Watch Company aimed at markets in Hong Kong and Asia. It is believed that this timepiece was made in 1960 or thereabouts and it features the red sweep seconds hand and accurately graduated chapter as demanded by medical practitioners.
This is a very attractive medium sized watch that is in excellent working order; It winds, sets and runs very smoothly and keeps good time. It is supplied with its original medium grey arm band which appears never to have been worn.
As with most European watches made during the 1960s and earlier, at 32.3 mm overall diameter (excluding the winding crown), this watch appears to be of a modest size especially when compared with the modern oversize fashion watches much favoured in North America. Nevertheless, we believe that it will be a pleasure to wear as an every day watch or a nice addition to any collection of European classics.
Savoy Watch Co., 11.5"', seven jeweled Swiss movement with centre seconds, manual wind.
Stainless steel case, 32.3 mm dia., with screw back, made by Rel-Air Watch Co. of Hong Kong
Silvered face with white graduated chapter, luminous Arabic numerals, luminous hands and red seconds hand, 28 mm acrylic crystal.
Mechanical watches make the ideal gift - classic appearance and no battery to fade or fail. They do, however, require attention from time to time by a competent watchmaker and although usually good timekeepers, a mechanical watch needs to be wound regularly and carefully. Timekeeping is unlikely to match the exact performance of modern quartz movements but, if properly looked after and regularly serviced, a mechanical watch will still be keeping good time long after its modern counterpart has ceased to function.
