It's a happy day, a new watch arrivedUltraslim vintage Helbros

May 04, 2013 03:13PM
Just arrived yesterday afternoon. I've been trying to curb my watch shopping lately but once in a while I put in a low dollar bid on something that catches my eye. To my surprise no one else bid higher for this jewel of a watch, I got this watch with shipping included for way below $20USD. I've always been fascinated with ultraslim design watches as the ingenuity and engineering involved with producing these types of watches is truly impressive. The watch is a Helbros branded watch powered by a Peseux Cal. 330 slim design movement. The watch itself is 7mm thick including crown and 34mm diameter. The movement is 3.1 mm thick which makes it among the thinnest movements around, the Seconds hand was sacrificed in the name of slimness. The watch seems to be working fine and keeping time and the movement looks very clean and healthy, however I did have to replace the crown that came with it for a more appropriately sized crown as the crown that came with it did not fit in the case properly due to size and looked out of proportion to the watch. Sorry I forgot to take movement pictures before closing the case, I'd rather not open the case again as it is very tight and hard to open. Here are some pictures;
