  • Catalogue Essay

    A remarkable example of watchmaking from the mid-twentieth century, the present watch perfectly exemplifies how outstandingly attractive and appealing vintage timepieces can be acquired even at a relatively affordable price range. This wristwatch ticks many of the boxes which usually make the hearts of watch collectors beat faster: it features an astoundingly well preserved stainless steel case with fancy lugs; an equally impressive three tone dial, also in remarkably honest and well-preserved condition; the triple calendar and chronograph set of complications with double window for day and month at 12 o’ clock, and outer date ring; a generous case diameter. Furthermore, this is one of the extremely scarce examples of wristwatches with case, movement and dial all signed by Gubelin. According to the Archives of Gubelin, the present piece was sold in the late 1940s. This piece will without a doubt be a treasured possession for the most exigent and discerning among the vintage watch collectors.
