Description

The watch has a high grade hand-winding movement which is working nicely. The movement is signed with the Zenith name and the serial number 2,217,166 dates it back to 1918. The movement is protected by an inner hinged cover.

The watch measures 34mm diameter excluding the fixed wire lugs and the winding crown. The case is silver and there are Continental hallmarks inside both of the case backs. The case is in good condition, just one fairly minor “ding” to the side, not too serious at all.

The watch glass is in lovely condition.

The dial is signed is signed Favre Leuba and Zenith. In 1901, the two families of the founders of Favre Leuba and Zenith were privately quite close and Henry Auguste Favre (Favre Leuba), who already owned a successful branch in Bombay, took over the distribution for George Favre-Jacot (founder of Zenith) in the India/Burma. During the long co-operation between the two companies, which lasted until the 1960s, several watches, especially high-class chronometers, were signed on the dial with both names.

The dial is in very nice condition. Most of the paint infill has fallen out of the hands over the years.

A new leather strap has been fitted.

The watch will be sent in a new presentation box.
