    Jacques Didisheim established Juvenia in Saint-Imier, Switzerland in 1860, naming the firm after his wife Juvenia Goldschmidt. The luxury Swiss manufacturer is known for its extraordinarily innovative case designs and unusual time indications.

    Juvenia demonstrated great skill and mastery in creating exclusive and complicated wristwatches throughout the 20th century, such as the present split-seconds chronograph. This manually wound 38mm stainless steel chronograph is a rare find and is elegantly complemented by its captivating two-tone dial. The split-seconds chronograph feature is a wonderful example of Juvenia's quality workmanship, allowing the user to keep track of two events simultaneously occurring.

    With its masculine, yet elegant design, the example presented here is a superb and rare wristwatch for the collector looking for an outstanding timepiece from the early 20th century.


A very rare, highly attractive and large stainless steel split-seconds chronograph wristwatch with rose and off-white two-tone dial.
