Master Mariner automatic bumper
This is a solid classic from the late 50s! JLC Master Mariner gold automatic, running smoothly on a 476 bumper movement. This type of movement predates the ubiquitous ones today where the rotor spins 360degrees. In a bumper, a disc is knocked between two springs (that you can see in the last few pics) while you're wearing the watch, giving off a most satisfying (audible) spring-vibration you can feel. It's 35mm across but wears larger due to the magnifying effect of the high dome. The back-case says 10k gold-filled and is on a lightly-used JLC ostrich-leather strap (*note: not aftermarket nor cow!). This elegant timepiece keeps accurate time, and will surely bring a smile to vintage-lovers! If you're looking for your first wallet-friendly JLC or a seasoned collector looking to expand the breadth of your spread, contact me for no-obligations chat and/or viewing. Cheers! ***Am happy to consider trading mine for an Omega Seamaster 300m/600m, or Tudor Day/Date, or lower-end Rolex.
