These Seikosha Phonotelemeters are in AMAZING condition! The manufacture name is clearly marked on the faces, and were manufactured between 1939 and 1945. “Phonotelemeter” is printed in Latin characters on the porcelain dial (which is normal for this type of watch), and all writing is clearly legible. Some very fine scratches on the rear of the casings due to the age.
The watch represented in the wood box is 100% COMPLETE, however the balance staff needes to be replaced in order for it to function correctly.
The one represented outside of the wood box is also 100% COMPLETE, apart from the crystal, which is currently missing. There is no damage to any of the internal parts, and both the balance staff and main spring are 100% INTACT! It was functioning 100% until 2 weeks, ago, when it stops, and now does not want to run. I suspect it just needs a cleaning, but I will leave that to the winning bidder.
At present, both are not functioning, so I am selling them as-is, for display, for parts, or for repair. Like most Japanese items, these are VERY RARE items, perfect for any collection, or display!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.
Payment should be made within 7 business days at the end of the auction unless buyer contacts me for other arrangements. I accept all forms of payment.
