Cortebert was founded in Cortebert, Switzerland in 1790 by Abraham-Louis Juillard although he did not officially register the name until 1855. Cortebert traded very successfully earning a reputation for manufacturing both high quality watches and movements. They also supplied railroad watches, where accuracy and reliability is paramount, for Turkey and Italy. The company ceased trading in the 1970s, as did so many other mechanical watch manufacturers, with the advent of the quartz era. This particular watch has a stem-winding movement, calibre 536, which is working nicely. The movement is protected by an inner hinged cover. The watch measures 50.6mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop. The case is gold plated and was made by the Illinois Watch Case Company. The case is in nice condition with only light surface marking from use. The case back has engine turned detail and a vacant cartouche. The watch has a glass lens which has light surface marking from use although very acceptable. The signed dial has a very faint hairline crack between 2 & 3 o'clock although only visible with a jewellers loupe. The watch has its original blued steel hands. 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 to three minutes over 24 hours (unless otherwise stated), which is considered respectable for a vintage watch.
