A Hidden Treasure: Titoni Airmaster 309

Brand New and never used.....

My wife bought this from an old watch shop few years back. According to her, while shopping for a watch for me, the nice husband, she spotted this shinning timepiece hidden inside the shop owner's safe. This is actually a left over stock from the shop owner's late father. My wife walked away with this watch with a thousand dollar short. 

This is a Titoni Airmaster 309. It is from the 1980's era. Titoni positioned Airmaster series as its classical lines with elegant shape. Its harmonious make-up and outstanding movement make this one of the lead models in the Titoni Collection.
This Titoni Airmaster is measuring 35mm in diameter without its crown. All parts of this watch is made of stainless steel. This watch is with the day and date function at its 3 o'clock position. This watch looks magnificient with flawless silver radiance dial decorated with silver match-stick hour markers with a black center-highlighting. A pair of sword shaped hands with black center insert and a silver coloured sweeping second hand making telling time an easy task.

This watch is fitted with a well constructed stainless steel bracelet. It is relatively comfortable to wear and yet can portray a very gentleman look on its wearer. The clasp is proudly signed with Titoni. As you can see the original price tag is still intact after a good 30 years....

The back case is screw down type and it is stated that this watch is water resistant to 30 meters.

This Titoni Airmaster 309 employed a 25 Jewels automatic ETA 2836-2 movement. It has a frequency of 28,800 bph.
