Thanks a lot Mahesh!

I appreciate your compliments. The color in the dial, the delicate seconds sub-dial with fine concentric engraving, the heath blued hands, the luminous Arabic numerals with open 9 and 6, the pumpkin colored lume in the hands. All those elements make the s... 

What size is it?

 By: COUNT DE MONET : June 13th, 2018-12:43
Very nice vintage piece!

Thanks Count!

You have an eye for elegant timepieces It is 31mm, same size as the Patek Calatrava Ref. 96. Very enjoyable. A piece from more elegant times, don’t you think? Thanks for your comment. René

Rene, that is beautiful! IS that radium?

My E326 says hello! ...  

Thanks Epilogue!

Yes, it is, or at least I think it is, since it’s circa 1940. Beautiful vintage piece you got yourself! I still can’t find the reference of mine, but caliber is 469/A. Beautiful movement as well Do you know what caliber has yours? And which year is it? Be...  

This is an incredibly charming watch

That center pinion contrasting with the hands, the hands themselves, the dial, wow!

Thanks Stabilizer

Indeed, it is. I think the center pinion was originally blued too, but evolved into a clearer tone of blue, like light purple. In fact, the pictures don’t do half of justice to the charm of the dial. As you move your wrist under different lights, colors c... 

Thanks for looking Aaron

And the best is that there are still some out there, waiting to be found. Cheers. René

Of course you can!

 By: renerod : June 14th, 2018-10:35
After I found mine, another Purist friend searched for one and found his! The top one, I can’t remember the reference but seems to be more desired than mine. With your permission, AlexSunrise. So I encourage you to start the hunt! Best. René ...

Now I see them as elegant watches for gentleman from another era when this was the right size for a dress watch, even for a field watch! Their size and proportions are more fine and elegant and some of us are re-learning and enjoying them with great pleas...
