This stainless steel divers watch from Neuchatel Watch company is in outstanding condition.

HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?

There are no serial number database for Neuchatel Watches, and the name is difficult to research as Neuchatel was the place where watch chronometer trials were held, so most research takes you to those high profile stories. But we know the brand was registered in that town in April 1950, and the movement in this watch was in production in this specification around 1965. That period also fits the styling.

CONDITION

NOS is an overused term when selling watches, and we don’t use it lightly. True, we do not know the history of the watch from day one, but this Neuchatel is in such pristine condition that it is likely to be NOS. The bracelet is not branded, and could be new. It is marked ENGLAND on the bracelet, which does fit the period though (later bracelets might be marked UK or GB, especially after the UK joined the common market). The lume on the dial is almost white, with no fade to cream like tritium often does, so it may not have been exposed to sunlight much at all. The movement is an ETA 2452, and this 21 jewel automatic movement has semi quick set date. The case and bracelet are both stainless steel, which adds quality. The non click bidirectional bezel is quite countersunk into the case, making it difficult to turn on land never mind at the 20 atm depth this was was original rated to. The crown is quite stiff at first to wind the watch, but it does loosen up after a few turns.

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