Description
The watch has a Swiss 17 jewel Landeron 248 hand-winding movement which is working nicely. The watch measures 36mm diameter excluding the winding crown and the lugs. The case is chrome plated and it is in beautiful condition, just a little wear to the back. The lens is in lovely condition (quite a lot of reflection showing in the photos). The signed dial is in its original finish with original hands. Two subsidiary dials, one for constant seconds and the other to record up to 30 minutes. This second dial has large markers at three, six and nine minutes. These were aimed at the business man who made international telephone calls which were very expensive at the time. The calls were rounded to chargeable chunks of three minutes and so watchmaking companies came up with this scale to help people control the duration of their conversation. This recording dial re-sets just to the left of zero. The dial is signed Wega, a brand name registered by Wega Watch Sa of Grenchen, Switzerland, in 1950. A later leather strap has been fitted. The watch comes in a new presentation box. All Prices Include UK Postage. Please contact us for international shipping prices (Ddu, details in delivery information section below). 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.
