Beautiful Hebdomas Patent 8 Days Swiss watch with visible breguet spirals, white ceramic dial with Arabic numerals, '8 DAYS' written in red and 'Qualite Superieure Garantie' written in black as a guarantee of a quality above the average of the watches produced at the time. In good condition. Steel case and working movement.
It is difficult to date the object exactly, as these beautiful watches were made between 1920 and 1960. However, I believe with a large degree of certainty that the piece dates back to a period between 1915 and about 1920.
In 1893, the manufacturing company won gold medals in Chicago, Geneva in 1896, Paris in 1900 and Milan in 1906. These accolades are engraved on the back and visible by opening the hinged case that contains the movement.
In 1918, they employed 1,000 people to make 1,000 watches a day.
The dial has a slight crack on the right side.
Case diameter: 47 mm.
