Features: Stunning original silver sunburst dial with applied markers and "Wyler" logo; original handset with nice yellow Tritium patina; original central sweeping-seconds hand; vertical day-date window at 6 o'clock (two-tone with black date wheel and white day wheel); solid stainless steel case with unique shape; original domed acrylic crystal with Wyler "W" logo etched in the center

Condition: Fantastic original condition overall with only minor honest wear consistent with age and use; razor-sharp solid stainless steel case appears to be unpolished with the original finishing throughout; logo and printing are clearly defined and visible on the caseback; attractive original dial; original handset with all Tritium material in tact and aged to a gorgeous yellow hue; a few very minor superficial scratches on the original domed acrylic crystal

Other: This particular Wyler is a great statement watch with its unique case shape and vertical day-date display at 6 o'clock. We typically see day-date displays positioned horizontally at 3 o'clock, but Wyler clearly went against the grain when they designed this particular model. The sharp stainless steel case paired with the original Wyler linked bracelet makes this piece easy to wear casually with jeans and a t-shirt - Try dressing it up under the cuff of a tweed blazer to stand out from the crowd.
