【Description】

KIENZLE(キンツレ)は1822年にスイスに近いSchwenningen(シュヴェニンゲン)で創業した、ドイツ最古の時計メーカー。

第2次世界大戦時にはドイツ国防軍への腕時計や懐中時計の供給、戦闘機のMesserschmidt(メッサーシュミット)のコックピット時計を生産していました。

また、置時計や掛け時計も製造しており、日本ではキンツレのヴィンテージはこれらの時計の方が多く見られます。

1960年代にはイギリスの高級車ベントレーやロールス・ロイスのダッシュボードの時計を手掛けていました。高級自動車に採用されるには厳しい基準をクリアした物のみ。

日本ではあまりブランド名が知られていませんが、60年代から70年代にかけてキンツレはドイツを代表する時計ブランドとして注目されていました。

そんな歴史あるドイツのブランド、キンツレの2レジスタークロノグラフです。KIENZLE SPORTとあるようにスポーティなデザイン。回転ベゼルと防水ケース(裏蓋にダイビングしている絵があります)、右側の30分計は5分毎に色分けがされており、ヨットタイマー仕様のクロノグラフと思われます。

オシャレさんの間では人気急上昇な『ヨッティング・クロノグラフ』ヨッティング・クロノグラフとはレガッタタイマーが付いた時計やセーリングウォッチのこと。この時計のデザインは黒文字盤に黒ベゼルと、ブラックがベースカラー。

その中にテレメーターのピンクの数字とヨットタイマーの青とピンクがワンポイントとしてかなりオシャレ。洗練された都会的な雰囲気を感じますね。マリンスポーツの爽やかな感じとミリタリーの男っぽさが絶妙なバランスなこのキンツレ。

ドレスダウンしたスタイルやジーンズ、カーゴパンツにも合うのでスタイルを選びません。ムーブメントは手巻きのバルジュー 7733を搭載しています。

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
