I've just bought an Airmaster 309 which seems legit and completely as described on ebay! Who dares wins every now and then. 

On topic, it has a ETA 2878 which puts it between 1969 and 1982 by my research as it was discontinued. It also aligns to the model dates that I've found from Titoni too. But there are many advertised with 2836-2 movements, and the red flower on the dial. 

This one doesn't have the red painted flower. So any boffins know about dating in the model run?

Pics later... All in very happy. It wants a clean and a little fettle on the bracelet end links is all

Ahhh! The magical world of eBay Titonis, where fakes and redials are more common than genuine examples! The original Airmasters were first produced in 1969 and after that it's pretty much impossible to date them I'm afraid.

I look forward to the pictures :)

I'll also use this thread as an excuse to post up a few of my favourite Titonis. I think I have around 20-ish at the moment :tongue:

Well here it is. I've done some homework on it and been looking for one for a while. Unmolested and a bit rough around the edges is fine with me. 

My presumption is rthe lacquer has yellowed and aged which I rather like

@Lampoc any thoughts? 

The bracelet isn't original to the watch but other than that it looks fine. Is the chapter ring missing? Hard to see in the pictures.

There doesn't look to be a chapter ring with any markings though there is a clear band of metal visible beneath the crystal. 

I had my suspicion over the bracelet and clasp (though the clasp is signed) however its very comfortable. I may investigate further... Have also thought about a strap...

Yes, the band of metal. For some reason I thought I could see the edges of the dial.

Think its an optical illusion. All in still very happy with it. Perfect size and scratches the itch for the moment :)
