After a 2nd World War, countries emerged shattered and wished to enjoy peace and recover. The watches of that era were elegant, resolutely dedicated to a civilian lifestyle.
To me, this is the archetypal gentleman's wristwatch, with an elegant flair I often long for. This is the perfect companion for a dress jacket, although its looks works as well in a more casual setting. I am impressed how right the designers of that time had gotten it, not much can be improved to the combination of flat bezel, cross-hair dial and applied indexes.- DH
