Today's offering showcases this classic and fine Favre-Leuba watch suggestive of the Rolex Prince Brancard, the most iconic Art Deco Rolex and a watch widely celebrated for its luxuriously elegant style.
The nicely proportioned dial is done in a doctor's watch style and its off set minute and hour and large, peripheral seconds dial insures the hour and minute hands never obstruct the view of the seconds.
It is pleasingly full size and slightly larger than a Rolex Prince, measuring 46mm long and the flared case helps the case fill out the wrist even more.
It has been previously beautifully restored and presents very nicely. The dial has had an expert refinishing, and the original unsigned silver (or perhaps silver plated) case is near mint.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a new timing certificate.
