The white dialled ones are nice but these three black dialled ones are great! :yes:

Not mine, but owned by Martinus Scriblerus (Dave) --- a well known Electro-Chron expert and collector!

I will be selling one, so i'll take your order now! Paul did a great job with these watches, as you can see from his photos.

I had never seen these until I joined this forum recently . I'm mainly into pretty conventional & understated mechanicals but there is just something about this model electro-chron that really grabs me ! For me the black dial is the one !

Would love to see one in the flesh (metal) & try one on my wrist but living where I do that is pretty unlikely.

I'll be keeping my eye out for a good one ..... until now the top of my wish list was a used MKii quad 10 or a Speedbird 1 or 3 but now the electro-chron also on the list. Problem is I can only afford 1 more watch at the present / near future. Roughly what would a very good electrochron like this cost ?

Also where can I find more deatils ?

Cheers,

Rovert.

Hi , I had a look at the your earlier post.... thanks.

Really like the look of the Black Beauties. (what's the diameter ? looks to be about 36mm )

I see that there is a white face one on the Bay at the moment. Unfortunately pics aren't all that good & I have no idea of the going rate for a good one.

Also had a look at the Electric Watch site. Paul would seem to be the man to send one to for repairs/service etc if I eventually get one.

I would have to look into freight & customs etc from Oz to UK & return.

Also there was a post yesterday showing a nice 60's Avia mechanical. Had a look on the Bay & there is a Avia electric there.

Any comments on these.

White faced ones seem to be going for about £250-£300. I do a fair number of watches for people from Australia. The Avia Electronic on eBay (400323866889) is a Swissonic model containing an ESA 9150 or 9154 balance wheel movement --- if serviced and running, these are very reliable.

Thanks Paul for the info. (I found your site really interesting & informative for a newbie to electric watches)

I'm looking forward to eventually being able to get onto the forums " for sale/wanted " area. Hopefully I'll get there in the next few months.

This forum is certainly broadening my interests in watches !

Cheers,

Rovert ( Trev)

Seem's a bit high, but if ya gotta have one (which everybody should!):

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370654082506&ssPageName=ADME:X:EAC:US:1120

White dial, just upgrade when a black comes along!

Edit: Make him a low ball offer... worked for me on a set of 5 with someone else (2 blackies 3 whites, with one being the newer design - see post above).

Martinus, your Electro-Chrons are indeed beautiful. I'd really like to acquire a black-dialed early Electro-Chron, at some point. Can you advise me on the best way to locate one and roughly how much a black Electro-Chron in very good to excellent condition should cost (approximately) in U.S. dollars at present? I don't want to overpay.

Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide, and please feel free to email me at atactical (at) gmail (dot) com, if you'd like.

David
