This ETA powered Titus Standard has an unusual and attractive calendar date position between 4 and 5. Model number 6222.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
Not easily. The ETA movement was around from 1970-75 as far was we can tell, but that is the only clue. We are estimating that this watch was made circa 1972. If you know any other dating evidence then we would love to hear from you.
The first thing to point out with any Titus watch is that the dial is completely original. eBay is full of awful redials that completely ruin a watch, but this one is right and not the garish colours that come from India and not Switzerland. The strap that is fitted is a good quality Condor XL, in new condition. The case plating is heavily worn, especially near the crown and on the lugs. The crystal is new, and the movement winds nicely and keeps good time. Their is a hang tag that accompanies this watch, but we have no way of knowing if this is the right tag for this model.
This watch will be supplied with our Certificate of Authenticity.
