Fall Watch Exhibition
It’s that time of year again. Midwest Diamond & Watch Co. will be exhibiting special complicated timepieces from Ulysse Nardin, Graham, Grand Seiko and more on October 12th from 10am-8pm and October 13th from 10am-6pm. New pieces including the Moonstruck, Sonata Streamline and the Freak Diavalo from Ulysse Nardin as well as rare limited editions from Grand Seiko and brand new watches from Graham-London.
Each watch purchased during the Watch Exhibition will have an addition 1 year of warranty added to the existing factory warranty. This means many of these fine watches will be covered for a full 4 years.
They not only carry a great selection of fine timepieces but are also authorized dealers for the top 5 manufactures of watch winders. Exquisitely crafted works of art are on hand to store your fine jewelry, wind your watch collections or safely house your favorite watch while traveling.
“As watch geeks ourselves, we wanted to make sure we offered something special for our guests during out favorite event." said Jacob Sobell, Midwest Diamond’s in house certified watchmaker.
This year they are giving away a both a limited production timepiece and a beautiful Orbita watch winder. Entry forms will be available to fill out during the Fall Watch Exhibition.
The watch is the Hamilton Khaki Conservation Chronograph.
Model #: H60416553
Movement: H31 (base 7753)
Designed in collaboration with Harrison Ford, the actor and Vice Chair of Conservation International (CI), the Conservation Auto Chronograph is designed to encourage individuals never to lose sight of the impact of time. A significant portion of the proceeds generated by this watch will contribute to the time-critical work of CI, an organization that empowers societies to responsibly and sustainably care for nature, our global biodiversity, for the well-being of humanity. The watch contains a new movement, the H31, which has an above average power reserve of 60 hours. It also affords impressive operational stability, assuring long-term accuracy. A vintage beige dial, an intricately grooved case and a stitched brown leather strap add nostalgic touches to underline the theme of preservation and longevity. On the back of the case is the charity’s logo, endorsed by the signature of Harrison Ford.
The watch winder is the Orbita Prive single watch winder in a beautiful Ebony Macassar finish.Ebony Macassar Finish
5 year lithium battery
The elegant, domed case of the Prive Lithium watchwinder demonstrates the superb woodworking skills of the artisans who build each individual case by hand. Necessarily, these winders are produced in limited quantities and are only offered for sale to watch collectors by a select group of high-end ORBITA stocking dealers in the USA and Canada.
Watches are gently wound on this quality watchwinder, with the mainspring tension of the watch held virtually constant, assuring accuracy. There is absolutely no chance of over-winding or stressing the watch’s winding mechanism. The winder is fully programmable, with settings of 650, 900 or 1300 turns per day (TPD), the latter selection perfect for winding many extended power reserve watches with double barrel mainsprings.
The program can also provide clockwise, counterclockwise, or reversing operation. Innovative software design provides automatic TPD adjustment to compensate for any battery voltage “droop” over time.
The Prive watchwinder is supplied with two 3.6 VDC factory-installed lithium batteries which are guaranteed to provide at least five years of service life. The winder also carries an iron-clad, five year product warranty.
The Prive case, made from solid mahogany, is finished in a fine ebony macassar European veneer.
The Prive Lithium watchwinder’s operation is virtually silent and, as double precision ball bearings support the rotating member, there will never be need for lubrication or maintenance.
The case interior is lined in soft black suede and the cover’s gold-plated quadrant hinges facilitate easy watch insertion and removal.
