Gents 1950s Praesant Chronograph / Wrist Watch
This is a gents 1950s Praesant chronograph. The Praesant brand name was registered in 1950 by Hans Meier of Zürich. The watch has a Landeron 51 movement which is working nicely.
The watch measures 35mm diameter excluding the crown, buttons and lugs. The case is plated – there is a little marking and wear but overall very acceptable for a 1950s piece. The screw-on case back is stainless steel. It states that the watch is waterproof but, as with any vintage watch, it should be kept away from water.
The lens is in good condition.
The signed dial is in good condition. Two subdials, one for constant seconds and the other to register up to 30 minutes. The chrono feature is operated by pressing the top button to start, and the bottom one to stop and re-set. The hand in the register dial jumps to the right sometimes when chrono function is started.
A new leather strap has been fitted.
The watch will be sent in a new presentation box.
