Rules: Postings must be an ad announcing an intent to sell, buy or trade. Full item description and photo(s) must be posted within the message here, not as links to other websites. Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price. Commercial dealers are limited to three unique posts per day. [More...]
For sale: Yema Yachtingraf Croisière in fully original condition with the original bezel and big crown.
The dial is really cool due to the big eye subdial at 3 and the ‘templars’ cross at 6 o’clock, the hands and markers have not been relumed and still glow very faintly when it's dark.
The stainless steel case measures 39mm and appears to be unpolished. Note that the plexi crystal has some crackling due to age but as I value originality I haven’t replaced it. A new replacement crystal will be included though.
The Valjoux 7736 movement keeps excellent time and the chronohands reset nicely to ‘0’, however service history is unknown to me.
A nice vintage style leather Rios strap is included but also included are the following extras:
- Genuine Yema leather strap (not an after-market remake), although the strap is unsigned it is the correct strap from the 1960s.
- Genuine Yema steel bracelet with signed clasp. This bracelet originally came with the Yema Superman diver watches and is also a really nice fit with this Yachtingraf. The bracelet shows marks of use and is full length.
- Correct and original Yema box. The original box in which the Yachtingrafs were delivered is also part of this package.
All in all a really full and pretty rare collector’s set
Price: €4250 Euro ONO
Shipping: The watch will be shipped via DHL Express and cost varies per destination.
Payment: Bank wire is preferred within EU, but PayPal is possible as well (please add 4.5%)
Both the watch and I are located in The Netherlands and I can provide good references on this forum if needed.
