  • Catalogue Essay

    The present watch is an exceedingly attractive and charming world time wristwatch. While Louis Cottier's invention is perhaps most associated with Patek Philippe or Vacheron Constantin watches, he also made movements for firms such as Tissot.

    This example is preserved in particularly stunning condition. Cased in 14k yellow gold, the watch barely shows any signs of aging, and all enamel on the bezel is intact and crisp. The dial is preserved in excellent condition, and displays the time zones like rays emanating from the center of the watch.


A very rare, most probably unpolished and attractive 14K yellow gold world time wristwatch with bracelet

Circa 1950
36mm Diameter
Case, dial and movement signed
