【Description】

リコーという会社が時計を生産していた、ということを知っているのは余程の時計好きしかいないでしょう。コピー機やカメラで有名なあのリコーです。

正確には愛知県にあったタカノというメーカーが始まりで、そのメーカーが災害により経営難に陥り、その経営を引き継いだのがリコーでした。

現在はリコーエレメックスという子会社となりましたが、時計の生産は継続しています。

タカノというからリコーへと名前は変わりましたが、高い技術力とセイコーやシチズンとは異なるデザイン性で熱狂的なファンがいるブランドです。

そんなリコーのダイナミックワイドという時計です。デザイン的にはロレックスのデイデイトに非常に近いデザインですね。

フルーテッドベゼルまで備えており、かなり本気で意識したモデルとなっております。

12時下の曜日表示は日英の2言語併記、その下にはアップライトのWロゴ、プリントのDynamic Wideと続きます。Wは恐らくWideのことだと思われます。

段付きのダイアルはパイ皿のように見えることから、Pie-Pan Dialと呼ばれています。この呼称は主にオメガのコンステレーション12角モデルに用いられます。

このモデルのように角ばっていない丸みのある段差のダイアルがロレックスにも一部存在し、それらもPie-Pan Dialとされています。

シルバーダイアルの中央部分は放射線状のサンバースト仕上げ、外側は円周仕上げと異なる仕上げを施してあり、この辺りにも手間の掛け具合が見られます。

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.
