Cauny Prima Swiss 18K Gold Wristwatch Item #2492 Price $650
Here we have a “New Old Stock” late 1950’s - early 1960’s Cauny Prima Swiss wristwatch in SOLID 18K GOLD. Take a look at the photos to see all that great straight graining and nice, sharp edges that look unused. The 18K Gold case looks outstanding!
The solid 18K Gold case features European (male) style lugs. It measures 34.02mm across without the crown, and 40.4mm from lug tip to lug tip. The crown is original and signed “Cauny”. The caseback is also signed “Cauny Prima” with a Fleur-de-lis, “Swiss Made”, with an 18K Gold assay mark. All sharp and original!
The original finish dial features a silver sunburst finish that radiates from the center. It also features original faceted, high polish hands, as well as Arabic hour markers at each quarter hour, with faceted arrow markers in between.
Powering the watch is a Cauny Prima Swiss made movement with 17 jewels and shockproofing.
We just serviced the movement and the watch is running strong, keeping very good time. During service, we also ultrasonically cleaned the gold case, but no polishing.
You may not recognize the name, but the quality is there making this timepiece an outstanding value. It comes ready to wear and enjoy on a new black lizard grain strap.
