Today's offering features an exceptional White Shadow watch with Microtor movement. Described by a member of the watch media as the greatest technical advancement in self-winding watches in 30 years when it was introduced, the micro-rotor powered movement allowed watchmakers for the first time to fit even thin dress watches with automatic movements. Here are some of this watch's features:
* Universal Geneve Microtor caliber 2-66 micro-rotor powered movement. The automatic winding system is kept powered by the use of a small solid gold rotor inset into the movement. The company was a pioneer of the revolutionary microtor design still in use today by a number of companies. Later Buren, Piaget, and also sought similar patents. Patek Philippe and Chopard have used the technology for their exclusive and very expensive micro-rotor powered models.
* The high-grade movement is protected against shock in two places and beautifully finished. It is of the quality you would find in watches that cost thousands of dollars.
* Elegant vintage dress style design
* Ultra thin automatic design - the complete watch is only approx. 7.5mm thick!
The watch is in gorgeous true expertly restored condition - it presents as a 9.7 out of 10. It is fully UG down to the original hands and crown. The dial is a perfect refinishing. As part of the restoration a Master Watchmaker has just freshly overhauled the Microtor movement.
