The Heritage Automatic

From Wyler Vetta -

Sometimes, you just crave a nice, classic watch.  This is the Heritage Automatic from Wyler Vetta.  I have a personal soft-spot for the original Wyler as my grandfather gave me a gold plated pocket watch in the 1970s after a visit to Oberlin from Texas (which is currently with my friendly neighborhood watchmaker who is giving it the first service of it's 40 year life).

Wyler has had a few different iterations since that time, and is now part of the Binda stable.  And I could be wrong, but it does not seem to be widely available beyond the borders of Italy. 

But back to today's topic -

The Heritage Automatic measures 39 mm in diameter and is of stainless steel.  The movement, as with many brands will be either from ETA or Sellita depending on deliveries - 2824/SW200.

Should you find yourself in Milan or Rome, and feel so inclined, here are the pertinents -
