Watch from 1941-43 made by CYMA of Switzerland which in those days was still Tavannes-Cyma. Unlike many of the US issues of its day this watch is rather substantial being 38 mm in diameter w/o the crown. It is either NOS
Never issued or just worn. and this watch is MORE AFFORDABLE than you would think.
This is for the collector or just a great watch to wear. To be sure it is a manual. It is a 15 jewel in house 234 movement of CYMA.

The photo shows a ser no and ord number of one I sold this year but the one you purchase I shall send a photo of for your review but, the identical watch and same condition. This is a looker – people will ask you what watch you are wearing! Keep in mind this is a vintage watch. , it is not bent or damaged. --DIAL all original as are the hands – the luminescent material may have been touched up or redone I do not know
I do not know how this watch was rated for water-resistance – all is a tight fit, crown and screw down back but for sure this not a diver.

It has fixed lugs no spring bars - Comes as shown with a new woven waterproof beige Nato G10 style band with a very nice box but no papers as expected. This overhauled watch is $1350.00 + shipped – when ordering please mention item: CYMA-234. thank you.
