This petite, manual wind cocktail watch by Precimax has nice bow lugs and is all solid 18k yellow gold.  Model reference 3804.


From the Edinburgh import hallmark on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being assayed in 1972.


Most gold watches in the UK during this period were made from 9k gold.  The logic is simple – 9k gold uses half the gold of an 18k gold case, so you can sell the watch that looks very similar for less money.  Precimax were clearly aiming fora higher market here.  The bow lugs look great, and the faceted acrylic does add some shimmer to the design too.  The watch is amazingly small – just 16.7mm across, so making a small enough mechanical movement takes skill.   Precimax used a seventeen jewel ETA movement in this watch which is working well.  The leather strap is new, and could be swapped for a different colour if preferred.

This watch will be supplied with our branded presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
