Description

Introduced into the market in 1928, the legendary "Prince" has ever since been very popular. The models, always fitted with rectangular cases of different shapes, were advertised as "The Watch for Men of Distinction".

The present example cased in stainless still is in incredibly good condition. The case is extremely nice and crisp with sharp case lines very reminiscent of the Art Deco era. The case back still proudly displays is Coronet, case and reference numbers that are still immaculately present to the case back.
