The Vintage Wrist Watch Company
The Vintage Wrist Watch Company is located in PERSHORE, UK
The Recta Watch Company was originally founded by Antoine Muller and Alcide Vaucher in Bienne, Switzerland in 1897. Muller & Vaucher Fabrique d'Horlogerie registered the Recta name in 1898. The watch has a stem-winding movement, signed Recta, which is working nicely. The movement is protected by an inner dust cover which has some surface marking. The watch measures 50mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop. The case is nickel. The front and sides of the cases are in good condition. There is some fairly gentle unevenness to the hinged case back. The inside of this case back has the Recta logo. The watch glass is in lovely condition, as is the lens (there is a faint hairline towards the edge but it is covered by the bezel). Blued steel hands, a subsidiary seconds dial and an outer minute track. The watch comes with a single chain, 25cm long including the T-bar and the clasp. The watch and chain come in a new presentation box. All of our watches are checked over before listing, and are also checked for accuracy which is usually within around +/- two to three minutes over 24 hours (unless otherwise stated), which is considered respectable for a vintage watch.
