Wyler Tri Sport 1976-1162D Circa 1970
Introducing the remarkable Wyler 1976-1162D timepiece, now available for sale.
Step into the world of horological excellence with Wyler, a name that resonates deeply among seasoned collectors. Since 1927, the watch company has captured the attention of the industry with groundbreaking innovations. One such innovation is the legendary Incaflex system, which revolutionized shock reduction by incorporating two curved elastic arms, protecting the balance wheel with unparalleled efficiency.
In 1932, Wyler pioneered the implementation of the monocoque case, elevating water resistance to new heights. By minimizing access points to only two, strategically positioned on the top and crown side, they effectively mitigated the risk of water ingress. This practical approach addressed a persistent challenge faced by many watch enthusiasts during the 1930s.
Wyler's marketing prowess is equally legendary, immortalized by a daring stunt. A select few Wyler Vetta watches were hurled from the pinnacle of the Eiffel Tower, defying gravity and emerging unscathed. This audacious spectacle showcased the resilience and precision of Wyler timepieces.
The Wyler Tri Sport Diver, presented here, embodies the essence of innovation. It seamlessly integrates the monocoque case and the Incaflex system within the WH222 caliber (ETA 2354 base). The watch features a mesmerizing matte black dial adorned with distinct raised Arabic numerals at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o'clock. Surrounding the dial is a captivating second time zone chapter ring, commencing at 13, a delightful departure from convention.
Impeccable in every aspect, the watch dial exhibits slight hints of patina, bestowing it with a unique character. Cream-toned patina gracefully envelops the stick hands and the arrow of the seconds hand, exuding timeless charm. Given its nature as a sports watch, subtle hairline scratches grace the watch case, a testament to its adventurous spirit. Minute imperfections manifest as minor dings on the watch lugs, bearing witness to a life well lived.
Completing the ensemble is a brand new NATO strap, perfectly complementing the watch's aesthetic.
