【About This Watch】

Marvin社は1850年スイスのサン・ティミエで創業された懐中時計製造工房から始まります。

面白いのが、20世紀の初め頃にアメリカのお金持ちなコレクターと知り合い、資金提供を受ける代わりに会社の名前をそのコレクターの名前「マーヴィン」にしてしまったことです。

1930年代にはロレックスにムーブメントを提供していたこともあるブランドなんです。

マーヴィンはモーターレースとの関わりが深く、1940年代にはフェラーリやメルセデス、ジャガーなどの錚々たる自動車メーカーのオフィシャルウォッチを作っていました。

高級車のブランドに認められるほど質の高い時計を作っていた、という証拠ですね。

 

イギリス軍にも採用された高精度でタフなValjoux 7733にデイト表示を追加したのがこのValjoux (バルジュー)7734。

外周にはタキメーター、3時位置の30分積算計には5分ごとに色が付いている、ヨッティング(ヨットタイマー)クロノグラフとなってます。

爽やかなネイビーの文字盤に30分積算計のグリーンとオレンジのカラーがアクセントに。

サイズは38mmという現行のクロノグラフよりも小さめですので、大ぶりなのはちょっと。。と思っていた方もバッチリなサイズです。

実際に試しに付けてみたところ、大きすぎず小さすぎず絶妙なサイズ感でした。

 

【Condition】

裏蓋のマークの一部が消えてしまっていますが、ケースはキズやアタリも無く良い状態です。

文字盤は細かく見ると積算計付近に塗装が若干剥げている箇所もありますが、焼けは無くブルーの色味も鮮やかさを保っています。

現在の状態でもかなり良い精度を保っていますが

※こちらの時計はOH後渡しとなります。ご購入のあと、約3〜4週間後のお渡しになります。

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
