This is a 1960s Titus wrist watch by Solvil et Titus. Paul Ditisheim, a member of the well known family in the horological world, was a child prodigy who gained his diploma from the Horological School of La Chaux de Fonds when he was just 13 yars old. He then worked at several watch manufacturing companies, including his father’s company, Vulcain, before founding Solvil et Titus in 1887. His work with chronometers was rewarded with awards from both the Kew and Neuchâtel Observatories and in 1912, he won the world's chronometric record of the Royal Kew Observatory. This particular watch has a 17-jewel hand-winding movement which is working well. The watch measures 31mm diameter excluding the winding crown and the lugs… it would suit a man with a slimmer wrist. The case is rose gold plated with a stainless steel screw-on case back. The case is in good condition with just some surface marks to the back but nothing serious at all. The lens is in good order. The signed dial is also in good condition with original hands and a centre seconds hand. A new black leather strap has been fitted. All of our watches are checked over before listing and are also checked for accuracy which is usually within around +/- two minutes over 24 hours (unless otherwise stated), which is considered respectable for a vintage watch. All of our prices include worldwide postage. Credit / debit card purchases can be made over the telephone on 01386 750238 or you can proceed via the red Buy Now button on each listing page.
