Case: Chrome over metal case in excellent condition. Appears to have never been polished. The original lines are crisp and preserved.
Caseback marked Swiss Made, Stainless Steel Back, Waterproof, Antimagnetic, Automatic. Ref. 1850 Serial number: 174410
Day set pusher at 9 O’Clock. Date hand pusher at 4 O’Clock. Month pusher at 2 O’clock. Moon phase pusher at 8 O’Clock.
Dial: Original, factory finished egg shell dial with some patina. Old radium luminous compound at hour markers.
Hand pointer to date chapter at perimeter of dial. Note that the outer date chapter is almost entirely missing now. This could be remedied by restoring/refinishing the dial (or simply having the date chapter reprinted and leaving the rest of the dial intact and original). The original, aged dial is quite attractive though, so I always opt for originality and will leave the refinishing choice up to the buyer. Twin day/month windows, and moonphase window.
Few imperfections for a watch of this age, and unusual art deco type “tear drop” hour marker design. See pictures for details.
Movement: Highly sought after and well regarded Felsa 693 with Bidynator automatic winding rotor. For its day, it is rather unusual to find such a complicated watch available with an automatic movement. The vast majority of the triple date, moon phase complications from this era relied on a mechanical winding movement, which was far simpler to achieve; examples include the Valjoux 89 and 90. All day/date /month/ moon phase complications work properly.
Fully serviced by our master watchmaker.
Dimensions: 40 mm x 32mm without crown and pushers. 16mm lugs.
Condition: Nice patina on a beautiful watch from the 1960s with a highly desirable and complicated Felsa movement. Most vintage triple date moon phase watches cost a fortune. This example sold under the Precimax brand ticks all the boxes and delivers in a much more affordable package.
Band: Pictured on a brown, padded leather strap.
