was £270 now reduced to £195. Avia 'Electronic' watch circa 1970s. Traditional hairspring balance wheel regulation with an electric motor providing the power rather than a mechanical mainspring. These watches are now known as electric transition watches as they join the boundary between mechanical and quartz technology that we know today. This watch is in fine condition, with a 70s retro case and mint condition two tone silver/bronze dial. The case has been refinished in our workshop to a very high standard. Avia Swissonic eletric movement powers the watch running well with its stepless secondhand. New batteries will be fitted when sold. These are power hungry beasts and battery life is typically 3-4months in constant wear. Also comes with a luxury wooden Avia box.
