A larger than average ladies or boys Titus Geneve watch with a clear military feel to it.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
We have a copy of an advert from 1950 that features a very similar Titus Geneve watch, albeit with centre seconds. It is likely that this watch was available at a similar time.
This is large for a ladies watch of the period, which is not a bad thing as it makes it easier to read today. The blued hands have possibly been relumed, as there is still a feint glow to them that we would not expect if they were original. The pale gold case plating is a good match the off white dial, and that dial is in pretty good condition for the time period too, although the is a line of patina running from 11 to 8 in some lights. The movement is a manual wind ETA 811, branded Titus Geneve on the barrel, and this is running well. The chances of this surviving as well as it has were helped by the watch being shock and water resistant from new. The leather strap is new.
This watch will be supplied with our branded presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
