AROGNO Vintage military WW II watch movement and case last made

AROGNO Vintage military  WW II watch movement and case sold out
This is an NOS watch made by the now out of business Arogno watch company of Switzerland, faithfully re-assembled with new dial and luminescence. The coin bezel case and the 15 jewel hand wound movement are the original pieces. The watch has the sub-seconds with a red hand. The back of the watch is engraved with historical data and dates - email for a photo. This is a classic looking watch and once they are sold there will be no more. This is more a collectible than a beater altho at 278.00 it is hard to find something this nice that is affordable for every day use. The movement being original may be in need of a cleaning for optimal performance I shall only send a watch that runs and keeps reasonable time. This watch was reassembled by O & W as seen in the logo in the eye at 3:00 OWZ - only they can find such special watches to bring to the public so many years after a company has disappeared along with its stock. Smart looking on the wrist. The watch is 37.5 mm in diameter w/o crown and 43 mm lug to lug and 11 mm high with its slightly round crystal of hardened mineral glass. Legible and easy on the eye and yet different than any timepiece anyone around you might be wearing. Water resistant to 3ATM but not a diver just against splashing and rain with a friction crown and a screw down stainless back. This watch is yours for 268.00 plus shipping - please refer to item no. AROG-1946. This watch has the real potential of becoming a collectible over time altho of course there is no guarantee to that effect but the movements and cases are now gone and the look is highly desirable. As always we welcome your comments, impressions and corrections when applicable regarding copy, please feel free to email even if not buying we enjoy hearing from you.
