For sale is a very good condition Eska Super Compressor. The Eska is a vintage ‘barn find’ that is being in ‘as is’ condition without any warranty.

Sylvan Kocher & Cie. was a small European brand that popped up after World War 1. The name Eska is the phonetic spelling in French of the letter S and K (es-ka). The Super Compressor has a 36mm stainless steel case with an inner rotating bezel adjusted with the crown at 2 o’clock with the time and date crown at 4 o’clock. Many credit the dual crown case to Eska, and over the years many brands have used similar variations of the design. The gloss black dial has painted hour markers with Arabic numbers at 6, 9 and 12. The dial appears to be all original and there is some light spotting to the left of the date window at 3 o’clock. The hands are luminous but the hour markers are not. The case is mounted on an aftermarket black calf strap with tang buckle. The watch has a spring-loaded case-back that seals tighter as external water pressure increased…hence the name Super Compressor. The case has a number of light scratches, as does the domed acrylic crystal, but from more than a foot away you can barely notice. Nothing out of the ordinary for a cool vintage piece such as this. The watch winds, sets, and runs very smoothly.

Shall deliver for $1,974 or best offer.

All timepieces come with a 7 day ‘no questions asked’ return period- will issue 100% refund as long as the timepiece is returned in the same condition in which it was shipped out.
