So I have been on a vintage diver kick- not the high line stuff, but the fun cheap divers from the 60’s. My prerequisites have been a Swiss movement of 15 jewels or more, preferably stainless case or if plated- it must be perfect, near perfect original bezel (a few scuffs or nicks is fine but no faded out wabi-Sabi for me) perfect dial, stunning lume, and it must be “running”. So far I have been lucky and have been able to see past the ugly crystals and blurry photos and pick up some nice gems. I have noticed that many of these watches, despite being branded differently, are from a handful of OEM suppliers as many share the same dial design, case and movement- just a different name on the dial. I have been familiar with the Tradition brand that had been marketed by Sears department stores (I understand it was one of their upper tier watches) and have mostly avoided them simply becuase I didn’t find many of them esthetically pleasing (lots of early 70’s stick hand day/date models). I know their chronographs fetch money as there was some possible Heuer connection (not really sure of the validity of that) but it is known that Sears was contracting these watches to OEM suppliers and it can be anyone’s guess who made them. Yesterday this guy popped up- stainless case, AS movement (not sure which one) and the most unusual dial and hand combo I had seen on a Tradition watch- almost like it’s a wannabe early SM300. The price was high for these watches but not rediculous, so I just said screw it and bought it. The only other example I found like it online was this exact watch from a FS posting from WUS from 2018- it had a little less wear on it then and better pictures. The things that stick out to me, besides the dial design, is the “Switzerland” instead of “Swiss Made” and the “T < 25mc” which I have never seen on anything other than a Rolex. Can anyone shed any light on who may have possibly made this watch by the case or dial design? And does anyone have another one like it- Even from a different brand but with the same case & dial?
