This a scarce example of a men’s that dates to approx 1910’s. This beautiful amazing large skeletonized dress a NOBLE DESIGN WATCH is decorated of the HIGH QUALITY ENGRAVING and the PHOENIX with BLACK STONES.

 

This trademark was registered to Graizley & Cie, La Chaux de Fonds. He patented the Hebdomas 8 day watch in January 1889. The tradename is still in use today with both pocket watches and wristwatches available. It was used on 8 day watches with a visible balance wheel. At first these 8 day watches were all made by hand. Hebdomas watches won gold medals in Chacago 1892, Geneva 1896, Paris 1900, Milan 1906 and Brussels 1910. In 1915, the patent and tradename was transferred to Schild & Cie, the new name for the Graizely & Cie company.

 

 

This gorgeous, men’s watch is a very handsome specimen and features a track borders, BLACK STONES for hour markers, and steel Plume-style hands. The dial is decorated of the applied steel PHOENIX and the steel high quality inlay.

 

The dial has an engraved bridge with VISIBLE BALANCE and a REGULATOR with red ruby.

 

 

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. GOLD PLATED – 23K case, new custom made, fantastic, builds of THE WANDOLEC ART STUDIO specially for this excellent HEBDOMAS movement. The lugs are in great condition while the engraved winding crown with RED STONE is in very good shape and operates properly. The case has MINERAL glasses on the front & back side. The case is decorated HIGH QUALITY ENGRAVING with RED STONES. The case is signed HEBDOMAS on the lateral bezel.

 

 

This beautiful wristwatch has the Original 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. The bridges have in addition to extensive skeletonization have been gorgeously engraved as well.

 

The watch is HEBDOMAS and is a genuine Hebdomas type patent 8 day pocket watch, with the same set up as a Hebdomas with a massive 8 day mainspring.

 

On the front side of the movement you can see the HIGHEST QUALITY ENGRAVING and trademark’s stamp of HEBDOMAS.

 

On back side of the movement you can see that the movement is completely covered by its gilt mainspring HIGHEST QUALITY SKELETONIZED cover. There is signed HEBDOMAS – 8 JOURS – ANCRE – QUALITE SUPERIEURE GARANTIE – BRUXELLES 1910. The cover is also decorated with four medals and signed MILAN 1916 – PARIS 1900 – GENEVE 1896 – CHIGAGO 1902.

 

It runs for 8 days but takes 8 times as long as a normal watch to wind up, so there is no saving in labour there.

 

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.

 

 

It comes complete with a new 24mm black alligator style high quality strap genuine leather with matching gold STAINLESS steel buckle for an excellent look.

Diameter (without crown): 49.00 mm

This cleaned, oiled and regulated antique watch winds and sets very smoothly while keeping very good, accurate time.

 

Supplied without box.

 

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.
