FS: Vintage Carrera, JLC Sector Dial, Rolex Oyster Precision


I hope you are well. I am slimming down my collection. I have 3 watches for sale and am looking for a good home for these. All of these have been purchased from Paul Seregin, a reputed watch dealer and restorer, in San Francisco. Payment through Paypal Business only. I will take care of the fees. CONUS only. Photos on request. I am not active on forums but on Ebay am Chopses and have bought and sold watches there. I am also happy to provide more details about myself, in case buyers have any questions. I am a university professor, living and teaching in the Bay Area and can share my university profile and email address etc. in case any one has questions about my bona fides. I also have been quoted extensively in the media for my research (on the Atlantic Monthly, Al Jazeera, Vice, BBC etc.) Please email me at rchopra73ATgmailDOTcom for any questions.

1. A Heuer Carrera 73653 Chronograph circa 1970. Blue-slate grey dial, with white registers and red hands. 39 mm. A truly gorgeous watch. Offered at $4600 OBRO. I have it on a custom leather aftermarket strap. Bought this about a year ago and have worn it very infrequently. From what I gather, it was lying unused for a long time and Paul Seregin serviced it to get it up to scratch. The watch dial is lovely and it appears unpolished (but given its long history, I don't want to run the risk of misrepresenting anything). There are initials engraved on the case back.

2. JLC Master Control Sector Dial, in truly excellent condition. Reference 1548530. An exquisite retro art deco vintage aesthetic. These were produced in a limited edition only in 2017. The watch I have was purchased in 2018 from Shreve and Co., Post Street, San Francisco. The watch is lightly worn; the original owner hardly wore it. I am the second owner and have also worn in barely half a dozen times. It has a sapphire caseback, and is on an original blue crocodile leather strap. It comes with original papers and the manual. I have a JLC box but it is not the original box. Offered at $4800 OBRO

3. Rolex Oyster Royal Precision. This one is a real gem, and an uncommon watch. The watch dates to 1959. It is 34 mm on original Rolex strap, but wears like a 36mm because of the lugs and shape. It has a beautiful black gilt dial 3-6-9 numerals and gorgeous leaf hands. Offered at $2800 OBRO.

I look forward to hearing from any interested buyers.
