A version of this watch is featured in the book....
Cauny Twin Timer 1968
Created in 1927 and based in La Chaux-De-Fond, Switzerland
The quality of the watches is very good, their logo the "Fleur de Lys" is striking and appears to have been re registered in the early 70's after the late 60's demise this time in Madrid, Spain. Changing the logo again to be more stylish....The brand seems to have developed well in the Iberian Peninsula, Spain, Portugal, Andorra as well as South America. The watches are good quality and very stylish.
This is a very pretty stark watch with a lovely silver finished dial that screams vintage. I don’t think I have ever seen a more simple coloured chronograph ever, usually they need to create different levels so the dial can be read easily. The case is one of those late 60’s angular cushion cases that were fashionable all through the 70’s. The ‘ebauche’ valjoux 7733 movement is nickel plated looks almost new…The case is stainless steel and is of very good quality this one is in immaculate condition..... virtually NOS manual wind with a 45 minute chronograph register and multi coloured tachymetre around the dial edge.
High domed crystal combined with the ageing dial give it a well traveled look with high Solid steel screw back case… the raised Arabic numerals are actually quite shallow and give an almost cartoon like print finish but it works for me with the thick baton hands and big luminous strips. I like this watch a lot….. it comes on a vintaged leather strap that suits the contrast between the almost perfect watch and organic leather.
The watch has been serviced and carries a 3 month mechanical warranty.
Due to their age and the original use of these watches there are minor marks to be found on the cases
which add to their vintage look without detracting from the quality, view the pictures for clarification.
