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.
