HISTORY & NOTES

A Collector's Quality Seeland 'QuadraMatic'. Very probably a prototype sample; case back not numbered as usual and different closure system from later production. Extremely rare.

Examine the photos carefully; they form the majority of this great Swiss 79 year old vintage WW2 era watch's description.

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

NB: I never guarantee watches are waterproof!
