Chronograph made by Axes, with original white dial with age-related patina and a few missing bits (see the photos as we will not accept disputes regarding the dial), outer tachymeter scale in blue and red. Applied, yellow gold plated markers, Axes logo and hands. Plexiglass crystal in very good condition. Crown without logo. 10 micron gold plated case with some plating missing on the lugs (see the photos as we will not accept disputes regarding the gold plating of the watch). Steel, pressure-fit case back with Axes logo. Rare, hand-wound movement, calibre Landeron 149, with Axes brand mark on the bridge. The watch keeps time well and works perfectly, even the chronograph (starts and resets well), but it hasn't been recently serviced. The watch measures 37 mm, excluding crown, lug width 18 mm, non original leather strap with non original, gold plated buckle. Axes chronograph from the late 1950s, in good condition aesthetically and mechanically. All original, very fine and elegant when worn. The photos are an integral part of the description. Sent in a generic watch box. Shipping to Italy and abroad by courier. Shipments from Italy may be severely delayed due to government restrictions on the circulation of goods due to coronavirus.
