A high quality watch from Favre-Leuba, one of Switzerland’s oldest watch making companies. Manual wind movement in solid gold case.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
We can date this to 1963 from the inscription on the watch back. The hallmarks are Swiss and difficult to make out, but there is a service mark from 1965 which supports the 1963 inscription.
Great. Although petite, the dial is clear and legible and the unusual lug design catches the light and reflects it well. The Favre-Leuba movement is a high quality manual wind version – the company have been making watches since 1737, with many technical firsts in the industry, so they know what they are doing. The sword hands are clean and very legible against the silver dial. The inscription is not the best quality work, but it is the thought that counts and Tony obviously thought a lot of Jose back in 1963 to buy her an expensive watch.
