Stunning, very rare Tavannes wristwatch dating back to the 1940s.
In perfect working order and precise, completely original from the period. Given that this watch is nearly 50 years old, it's almost impossible to find it in this condition.

Case back branded and with reference: 23804 / 8725 / 25.
Cream-coloured dial with signs of wear that add to its charm. Very large seconds sub-dial at 6 o'clock.
Small mark on the plexiglas crystal between 4 and 5 o'clock, which isn't visible to the naked eye.
New generic strap in green fabric with loops in leather, Morellato brand. Measurements: 18 mm at the lugs x 18 cm in length excluding the case and buckle.
Morellato steel buckle.
International shipping with tracking and insurance.

    I do not understand why a neutral feedback from a person who has received the goods immediately and as described, then shipping charges ????
    I paid the written figure, I do not understand why I should pay it less, then before sending I sent it also separate !!!!

  • The watch is in fantastic condition, as shown. The hinges on te box were broken upon arrival, not sure if that happened in transit. But the watch is great. I’d buy from this seller again.
