Description

The watch has a hand-winding movement, a Dugena 715 which is based on an AS 1604, which is working nicely.

The watch measures 35mm diameter excluding the winding crown and the lugs. The case is plated, and has a stainless steel case back which is signed with the Dugena name. The case is in good condition.

Dugena is a very famous German brand but it all began in Switzerland with the Swiss watchmaker association Corporation d’Horologers Suisse. It was founded in 1883 and in 1901 changed its name to Union Horlogere which manufactured and sold watches under the brand name Alpina.

From about 1909, a branch was set up in Glashutte in Germany, called Präsicions-Uhrenfabrik Alpina. During World War II, the company was not allowed to use the Alpina name so they changed to Dugena which stands for Deutche Uhrmacher GE Nossenschaft Alpina.
So basically Dugena watches have Swiss movements which are finished in Germany.

The lens is in good condition. The signed dial is in good original condition with original hands, centre seconds and outer minute markers.

A new leather strap has been fitted.

The watch will be sent in a new presentation box.
