Men's Arnex Wristwatch Swiss Made ETA 2451 Restored. Before dominating the global pocket watch market during the three-piece suit era of the 1970's, Arnex wholesaled watch parts and complete watches to the jewelry trade primarily in Manhattan's 47th St & 5th Ave jewelry district. Many quality timepiece manufacturers used Ebache's from ETA SA like the one in this offering.
The one in this watch runs runs in near perfect condition. And while the case shows some wear, it's vintage, looks nice on the wrist and is quite collectible.
We consider this wristwatch a good find. It's a rare, modern wristwatch from the 1970's and has a nice desirable brand. It's also one in which your watchmaker can find parts. Here's some specifications on the movement: ETA 2451 Features: manual wind, sweep second, automatic, 17 jewels frequency = 18000 A/h, power reserve 42h. As watchmakers, we use care in the assembly and restoration of our products.
Much of what you'll see in our listings comes as the result of purchasing components to build watches. We attempt to use everything and pass on what we don't. We look for old stock and let the extras go at reasonable prices. We don't engage in watch repair. We make and assemble watches from parts acquired globally.Hopefully, you recognize us as watchmakers not repairers. We also hope you find something of interest that suits you among our sale items. Sam English and Tom Adelstein engage in many aspects of the timekeeping world.
We have much to share as industry insiders. We look forward to your stay!
