I am happy to offer for sale this beautiful amazing large engraved dress THE NOBLE DESIGN WATCH that dates to ca 1920’s and decorated with the HIGHEST QUALITY ENGRAVING with the GRAPES and WINE’s BARRELS. Indeed, it was made by the Watch Company of venerable watchmaker Auguste Agassiz.

 

It's a shame that so many of the Great watchmakers such as Agassiz, Ed. Koehn, Meylan and Niton are barely spoken of today. Patek is commonly, though arguably, thought of as the world's finest watch, however, there are others equally as fine and perhaps even finer but they sadly are long since lost to history.

 

This gorgeous, men’s watch is a very handsome specimen and features a steel Breguet-style hands and a recessed sub-seconds “sweep” steel hand.

 

It is a registered design model that features a three piece GOLD PLATED 23K CASE that provides with glass cover of back lid. This watch was converted from pocket watch. The case, new custom made, fantastic, build of WANDOLEC ART STUDIO specially for this excellent AGASSIZ movement. The lugs are in great condition while the winding crown is in very good shape and operates properly. The case has MINERAL glasses on the front and back side. The case is decorated HIGH QUALITY FLORAL ENGRAVING.

 

This beautiful wristwatch has the Original magic GOLD-FILLED movement in an excellent status which was very well saved, considering age of this watch and has been in addition updated and engraved by the craftsman. Each part of the mechanism, each millimeter it is decorated by a magnificent magic ornament. Mechanism has been recently serviced to ensure it winds and sets smoothly while keeping great, accurate time.

On the front side of the movement you can see the HIGHEST QUALITY ENGRAVING with the GRAPES and WINE’s BARRELS. Also is signed the movement serial number #8121.

On back side you can see HIGHEST QUALITY ENGRAVING mechanism with BLUE STEEL SCREWS and BI-METALLIC MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUE BREGUET BALANCE SPRING. The movement maker is not marked but I hope another collector can identify the maker within the Agassiz Guild as it is clearly higher grade.

 

Mechanism has been recently serviced to ensure it winds and sets smoothly while keeping great, accurate time.

You can see from any direction the internal mechanics working as the balance wheel spins. They make an elegant statement on the wrist. Watch aficionados and laymen alike when they see a high quality skeletonized watch recognize its beauty.

This is a “NAIL SET” watch so you don’t pull the crown out to set the time. Instead, you press the little button near the crown IN and then move the crown to set the hands, releasing the button once you’re finished. It’s easy, so don’t worry about getting the hang of it!

It is fitted on a new 24mm black alligator style genuine leather strap with gold Stainless steel buckle that has a great vintage look to it.

 

Diameter (with crown):        57.00 mm
Diameter (without crown):   50.00 mm
Watch crystal diameter:      40.00 mm
Thickness:                          15.00 mm

This rare watch winds and set smoothly while keeping very good, accurate time.

Because of the vintage nature of the watch I cannot guarantee its absolute time keeping accuracy even if they are in good running condition and in some rare occasions may require additional adjustment.
