For your consideration is an April 1968 6117-6019 “Chicago” GMT World Time Automatic Wristwatch. A very desirable and early “proof blister back” world time.
History of the Watch
This 6117 is part of my personal collection of watches. I do not know the origin before my ownership.
The watch presents as completely unworn and original unto itself and I would rate the cosmetic condition as a 10/10 — It really is quite beautiful. The case appears as though it has never seen any time on the wrist. It still has remnants of its case back stickers. The hands are in extremely good condition as is the lume, which is a warm tan tone. Watch comes as the head and a tan calf-skin band as shown in the images.
I serviced this watch on 05/28/2021. That process includes a full cleaning and evaluation of all movement components and proper lubrication. Lubricants used were Moebius synthetic varieties appropriate for this watch movement type. The amplitude numbers are 240-260 range and the rate is +/- 2 sec/day. The case back and crown all have new, and factory correct seals.
This watch comes with a 100% money back promise of originality and a 1-year limited warranty on the movement from the time of sale. Shipping through USPS 2-day. Non-domestic buyers please contact me for a shipping quote.
