  • Catalogue Essay

    This chronograph wristwatch with date and moonphases is distinguished by its near-pristine condition. Incredibly large for the period, it is offered in most probably unpolished condition. Its contrasting satin and polished finishes are remarkable, displaying how the watch left the factory over seventy years ago. All edges are sharp to touch.

    Of particular note is the case number and "Fond Acier Inoxydable" text punched on the outside case back, which is crisp, deep and highly legible.

    The dial is also preserved in excellent condition, considering that it was housed in a case with a non-waterproof snap-on caseback.
