HELIOS-1.jpg (70938 bytes) HELIOS-2.jpg (24291 bytes) HELIOS-3.jpg (34950 bytes)
Helios Watch Co. Chose their name based on the Greek and Roman Sun God [Ancient Greek: Helios, Latinized as Helius].

HELIOS was the personification of the Sun in Greek mythology. Homer often calls him simply Titan or Hyperion, while Hesiod  and the Homeric Hymn separate him as a son of the Titans Hyperion and Theia  or Euryphaessa and brother of the goddesses Selene, the moon, and Eos, the dawn. The names of these three were also the common Greek words for Sun, Moon and dawn. Ovid also calls him Titan.

Helios was imagined as a handsome god crowned with the shining aureole of the Sun, who drove the chariot of the sun across the sky each day to earth-circling Oceanus and through the world-ocean returned to the East at night.

Homer described Helios's chariot as drawn by solar steeds. Later Pindar described it as drawn by "fire-darting steeds". The horses were eventually given fiery names: Pyrois, Aeos, Aethon, and Phlegon.

As time passed, Helios was increasingly identified with the god of light, Apollo. However, in spite of their syncretism, they were also often viewed as two distinct gods (Helios was a Titan, whereas Apollo was an Olympian). The equivalent of Helios in Roman mythology was Sol, specifically Sol Invictus.

Thus the Helios Watch company identifed with the power of the Sun God and the fact time was part and portion of the Myth.

Helios would supply watches both to the Axis Powers and the Allies. British and German watches with WWII Military imprints and stampings can be found for reasonable prices.

This Helios is extra special. From the top-of-the-line Unitas Movement, with 17 jewels, swiss bars, sweep seconds hack, luminous radium dial, clear timing chapter ring and 24hr time, it's greatest feature is the rotating bezel indicator. An inner pointer can be set to minutes or seconds for timing.

THIS IS NOT AS EASY AS IT SOUNDS
IT IS EASIER TO REFINISH THE ENTIRE DIAL

WHILE NOT MANY WATCHES ARE WORTH MORE
WHEN THEY HAVE THEIR ORIGINAL DIALS.

THIS WATCH IS EXTREMELY RARE
YES YOU WILL FIND THEM
BUT VERY FEW IN RELATION TO MOST BRAND MODELS

THE DIAL WAS IN SUPERB CONDITION
AND THUS THE VALUE IS RAISED
ON THIS RARE HELIOS TIME PIECE

VALUE AS TO REFINISHED OR ORIGINAL DIALS REMAINS IN THE RARITY OR HIGH VALUE NAME OF THE WATCH. 90% OF VINTAGE WATCH SELL BETTER AND AT HIGHER PRICES WHEN THEY ARE TOTALLY RESTORED ALONG WITH THE DIAL. ALSO, REMOVING THE RADIUM ON ANY DIAL DOES NOT LOWER THE VALUE

IMG_7615.JPG (32916 bytes)

THE SEATED BEZEL ROTATES

IMG_7621.JPG (28950 bytes)

THE STRAP OS ALSO STUNNING
AND
EXTRA HEAVY DUTY

REMEMBER- DO NOT WEAR WITH WHITE SHIRT THE FIRST WEEK OF SO, WHEN WE RESTORE A STRAP, WE USE  MANY TECHNIQUES, INCLUDING HIGH SPEED BUFFING WITH WAXES AND OILS THAT EMBED INTO THE STRAP. IT TAKES A FEW WEEKS TO PROPERLY "DRY". WHILE WE HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM, AND THE OILS ARE USUALLY COMPLETELY EMBEDDED, WE WOULD RATHER INFORM YOU... SO, WEAR IT WITH NON EXPENSIVE LONG SLEEVE SHIRTS FOR A WEEK OR SO AFTER YOU RECEIVE IT JUST IN CASE... HATE FOR YOU TO CALL ROCK AND SAY "YO, PAY MY DRY CLEANING BILL!"... LOL

IMG_7620.JPG (30288 bytes)

STEEL DEPLOYMENTS ARE A STRAP PROLONGER.

YES, ALLOWS LEATHER STRAPS TO LAST 2 TO 3 TIMES LONGER. PLUS IT IS  A MUST HAVE DUE TO THE FACT IT IS SO EASY TO SET ONCE AND THEN PLACE IT ON AND OFF WITH EASE!

THERE IS A FINE DEEP CIRCULAR NOTCH

TO SEAL THIS THE BEZEL WE USE THE BEST *"INDUSTRIAL

UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE all watches offered by GSW have been SERVICED. Some required REPAIR AND RESTORATION!

RESTORATION is a separate service from SERVICING and may include CRYSTAL, DIAL, HANDS, CASE, LUGS and BAND.
