FS: 18k rose gold Certina / 1970s HOGA (Lemania 1873 for repairs

Hello CT ,

Looking to sell a couple of vintage watches. Please read carefully:

Vintage 18k solid gold Certina dress watch

- Year : Circa 1960s.
- 34mm18k solid gold case, unpolished and unmolested. The snap off caseback is stamped, bears the reference number "10201" the inner side of the caseback is blank.
- Beautiful two tone dial showing some signs of age with some spots and little patina.
- Original gold dauphine hands. ( with changed seconds hand )
- Unsigned crown operating as it should.
- Aftermarket acrylic crystal in excellent condition
- The movement is the manual wound Certina cal. 324 which runs very well and keeps excellent time despite its unknown service history.
- 18mm strap with gold plated buckle.
- No box nor papers.

HOGA chronograph for repairs ( Lemania 1873 movement )

- Year : Circa 1970s
- Chunky stainless steel case measuring 43 mm in diameter and showing some scratches throughout. Not too terrible for a 70s racing chrono!
- High quality Lemania 1873 mouvement but it's missing some parts.
- The watch winds normally and the balance wheel is in motion. From what i could see, the watch keeps time as it should and the seconds register works flawlessly.
** The problems are as follows:
- The crown doesn't set time and feels loose when pulled out then turned.
- The chrono function does not work at all despite the smooth pushers action ( when pressed they seem to trigger a mechanism either to start or stop the chrono ) maybe it's due to the lack of a small wheel ( see photo below )
- The small axis and hand of the hours register is missing.

My asking price would be 850€ OBRO for both watches including worldwide shipping fees. I can provide references on request. Do not hesitate to shoot me an email for any inquiries.

Warm regards.

Oussama Mastouri.
