What's for sale?
This is the unisex "Pitti" automatic manual watch, designed by Swatch for their 1995 Spring and Summer collection, model number SAM105.
It has a twenty three jewel ETA, manual movement with automatic, self-winding mechanism. The case is an intermediate, 35mm size.
The front and back of the case have an open design which beautifully exposes the movement. The dial has a narrow, gold-coloured band with "Swatch Automatic" in ornate script. Inside that is a narrower, grey band with black Roman numerals. The hands, including the sweep second hand, are also black.
At 12 o'clock, there is a small magnified circle of glass, behind which one of the jewels can be seen.
The strap is decorated with an artistic, script theme and made from a pliable, easy to clean resin.
Automatic watches can wind themselves when you wear them, using your body's movement. Should you wear them enough, you'll probably need to wind them by hand to keep them energized. Automatic watches usually have a clutch to prevent over-winding, so you may feel resistance when winding. If it has wound down completely try, for a dozen winds of the crown. The winder mechanism can also become stiff over time.
