Solvil et Titus 1972c


Here we have a watch with a fluted bezel, screw down crown and date bubble and it’s not a Rolex! No where near it as far as quality goes, but a good watch nevertheless.

I wasn’t able to date this watch but I estimate that it is from the early 70’s. Comparing it to Rolexs of the period it is one feature ahead of it’s much more famous look alike…it has a crystal glass whereas the Rolex used Perspex.

This watch is all original and is in exceptional condition, it looks like it hasn’t been worn. Well constructed with the legendary ETA 2842 movement clamped to the case and signed five times, this is a strong, good looking, wear anywhere watch.
A great find

About robswatches

I’m a horoligical “petrol head”! I love classical mechanical watches, not because they tell me the time, I can get the time from cheap quartz watches, my computer, phone, microwave or just about anywhere. I’m interested in the movements of watches, the aesthetics of case design and their construction, the history and the simple thrill of watching tiny, beautifully finished wheels, pinions and other parts turning and oscillating and marvelling at the craftsmanship that created it.
