An inexpensive men’s manual wind wristwatch from Monvil, and a welcome addition to any collection.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
The movement in this watch was made circa 1960. This is not ideal dating information and we could be a few years out, so this is a watch to buy because you like it rather than a definite birth year watch.
If you like it, buy it. This is simple advice, and this is a simple watch with some nice details. We don’t know much on Monvil either, so we can’t help there. The movement is a 15 jewel calibre 233-60 from Cupillard, a French Ebauche maker and this is why the watch is not marked Swiss. The case is chromed and in nice but not perfect condition, with a screw on stainless steel case back. The dial is the main attraction, with applied hour markers and hands with lume infill. The centre detail is a faux guilloche pattern is still interesting, even if showing some patina. 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.
