Giving is much more rewarding than receiving in my humble opinion.
I acquired this 1970's Sicura a few years ago as part of a a multi-trade deal. It is not my style and has been sitting dormant for 3 years.
It will be shipped within the USA for free to the first person who donates $40 to the following child whom is in need of a kidney transplant:
Service history is unknown and it has not been timed. Here's a few details:
38+ MM overall
Case - original graining evident, with lots of normal wear for this tool watch for a well worn look, stainless case and caseback
Crown appears original, however seems to be plated from wear
Dial has mellowed to a warm chocolate tone. Dial is pristine, you are seeing plexiglass flaws in daylight, not dial problems.
faceted indexes are sharp
Hands are clean including a nice pop of color from the second hand
Plexi could use a polish or replace.
Bracelet is period correct, however only accommodates up to a 6.5" wrist. I do not have the extra links, sorry.
Mechanical features: winding and automatic features work, however it would benefit from service. No quick date setting, or at least I cannot figure it out. I've attempted numerous variants of quick setting with no luck. Perhaps someone can help?
Anyway, on to the pictures.
Dial is pristine, you are seeing plexiglass flaws in daylight.
Wishing you and your families a safe and happy holiday season.
