An eye catching gents large Chronometre Swiss wrist watch which is a conversion whereby a 1930s/40s Cronometro Veto pocket watch has been housed in a bespoke case… the evidence suggests that this work was carried out many years ago, to make an unused pocket watch into something that could be worn and enjoyed. The hand-winding movement is working nicely. The brand name Veto was owned by Favre Frères, founded in 1859 in La Neuveville by Louis Constant Favre. Over the years, various members of the Favre family were involved in the business. In 1920 , due to financial difficulties, the company was mothballed. The main brands Gala, Veto and Herlis were taken over by Liengme & Co around 1938. There were close ties between members of the Favre and Liengme families with several of them being married to each other. The watch measures 46.5mm diameter excluding the winding crown and the lugs. The case is chrome with a stainless steel back and is in good condition with just light surface marks. The lens is in good condition. The signed black dial is in lovely condition and has a striking appearance, a real statement piece. The photos are showing some reflection from the background. A later leather strap has been fitted. The watch will be sent 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 minutes over 24 hours (unless otherwise stated), which is considered respectable for a vintage watch.
