History & Notes

This is another rare watch with a contemporary military strap, yet again from an old Bordeaux watchmaker's estate, worthy of any collection. Its condition is exceptional.

Examine the photos carefully; they form the majority of this fine vintage Franco/Swiss watch from about 74 years ago. Please note that movement photos were taken BEFORE the watch service.

The HUMA will be very carefully wrapped (see my Feedback and bid with confidence!) and shipped via Colissimo Insured & Signed For.
