Original SNYPER GENEVE Swiss Made IRONCLAD SPECIAL EDITION watch.
This Snyper Ironclad has a mechanical automatic self-winding CONCEPTO calibre F101 movement based on the classic 7750 chronograph, modified and tuned by the Snyper watchmakers. It’s constructed with 25 jewels, a shock absorber device, and a straight-line lever escapement. It includes a monometallic balance, a self-compensating flat balance spring, and a hacking seconds device for precision time setting.
The stainless steel PVD coated 50 mm case has a matching black/red leather strap with folding clasp marked SNYPER, and a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. There is a solid screw-down case back allowing the view to the fancy decorated movement, and engraved with IRONCLAD | 100M | STAINLESS STEEL | SPECIAL EDITION | SWISS MADE, and the reference number. It has two handle type push buttons, a target marked screw-down crown, down-turned lugs, and angled fixed bezel. The dial is anthracite gray with carbon fiber accents with dark hours markers, a red inner bezel, black hours, minutes and small 12 hours hands, a center sweep red chronograph hand and a small red seconds hand at 9 o’clock position in a small red dial. A date aperture window is between 3 and 4 o’clock and the day aperture is located at 3 o’clock position. It’s water resistant to 100 meters/300 feet, and the 15 mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed.
The watch doesn’t seem worn and the maintenance history is unknown. The watch is working and keeping an accurate time, but as for any vintage or used watch, a basic revision is recommended.
Most of the watches that I am selling are liquidation or collector items, therefor I make no claims and give no warranty regarding continual accuracy of time keeping. Used, antique or vintage watches may need servicing, even if they are in good running condition. Unless otherwise stated they may need to be cleaned, oiled, adjusted and or timed. I cannot guarantee a used watch to be waterproof or water resistant.
