Vintage IRYS Ancre 17 Rubis Mechanical Watch

This vintage IRYS 17 Rubis mechanical watch comes with a stunning black dial with glow-in-the-dark hands and hour markers. We have placed it on a brand new NATO strap in tones of black and green, which fits most wrist sizes.

The watch is powered by a 17 Rubis mechanical hand-winding movement, and it's a durable timepiece to have on the wrist. It was designed to be a divers watch, but we don't recommend testing its water-resistance, since it's a vintage watch. 

With a classic, elegant design, and an impressive movement, this vintage IRYS watch is ready for a second chance.

 This is a vintage watch with a mechanical movement that needs to be hand-wound periodically in order to keep time correctly. It is a watch from the 1970s, so its level of time-keeping accuracy is specific to the period when it was manufactured.  

About mechanical watches

mechanical watch is a watch that uses a clockwork mechanism to measure the passage of time, as opposed to quartz watches which function electronically, with the help of a small battery.

A mechanical watch is driven by a mainspring which must be hand-wound periodically. Its force is transmitted through a series of gears to power balance, a weighted wheel that oscillates back and forth at a constant rate. A device called an escapement releases the watch's wheels to move forward a small amount with each swing of the balance wheel, moving the watch's hands forward at a constant rate.

Mechanical watches are classic vintage pieces, beautiful displays of minimalism and old-school features. Some of the most elegant mechanical watches, for true vintage enthusiasts, are now available in our vintage mechanical watch collection
