A larger than average Ancre watch from this period, with a clean gold plated case and blued hands.


This isn’t the easiest to date, as no production records remain and the movement we have not been able to identify – it looks very similar to Alpina movements of this period.  So we can only date this watch to circa 1950.


The design is quite attractive, with the two tone dial being contrasted with the heat treated hands that are a lovely shade of blue.  The dial has a small scratch near 11, as well as some age marks, but isn’t in bad overall condition for the age.  The 15 jewel movement is winding, setting and running well and the gold plated case only really shows wear on the lugs – our high resolution enlarged photos show faults at their worst, but the video is probably more representative of what the watch is actually like.  We have fitted a new plexiglass crystal and leather strap, so it is ready to wear.

Please see the HD video below for more detail.


Approximately 35.5 mm wide including the unsigned crown, 9.9 mm thick.  Takes a 19 mm strap.
