Bold Belair Octagonal Case Calendar Watch

il_fullxfull.497689289_a0lu[1]Here is a dress watch that has its own spectacular style. It is a Belair men’s watch with an octagonal case, and calendar window. The gold tone case has a matching gold tone mesh band. This circa 1970’s watch is high style, slim, and sophisticated. The kind of watch to wear on your big days and bigger nights, with just the right amount of visual interest.

This gleaming men’s dress watch has an octagonal gold tone case has a bezel with eye and light catching carved designs on the angled quadrants, horizontal bands across the dial, a Roman numeral XII, baton markers at the 6 and 9 position, gold tone hour, minute and sweep second hands, and a date window rests at three o’clock. This superb Belair watch is powered by a quality ETA 555.412 unadjusted 7 jewels Swiss made watch movement; many higher end Swiss watches of the 1980s also used this movement – a quick internet search will give you an indication of the good company this watch is keeping.

Belair has been in the watchmaking business for over 60 years. Made in USA with imported Swiss quartz movements. Belair Watches are marketed to the jewelry trade directly rather than to the consumer, which may be why you are less familiar with the Belair watch name. A visit to their current website will be enjoyable and quite illuminating.
