Caravelle automatic c.1971

0.00

As the ‘70s moved along, the decade ushered in all sorts of styling. While the decade as a whole is probably better known for the big, blocky, “funky chunky” watches, there were still some smooth lines being put out.

We admit, this still brings some of the funk…but we love the off-centered blueberry dial and contrasting pale yellow hands and airplane sweep second hand. It has the color combination your watch box is lacking. It has a case shape you’ve likely never even worn. It has a wonderfully solid automatic movement to last generations. And it’s in such great condition you’ll feel like a brand new watch is on the wrist.

Enjoy the bland, but take a chance to embrace the bold.

[All vintage watches are expected to function as described. However, due to age and generally unknown service history (unless otherwise stated), these watches may not keep time as accurately as new or quartz (battery) watches. This is completely normal and does not indicate that there is a major problem. Like your automobile, all mechanical watches will likely need to be serviced at some point in time. Please keep this in mind, as there is no guarantee regarding when these vintage watches may need standard maintenance. Every watch sold by Buying On Time is done so with the expectation that it is not currently in need of service or repair, unless noted. We guarantee that all watches sold are accurately described and in the stated condition when they leave our hands.]
