empressissi™ is pleased to offer this uncommon and fine Swiss watch by CERTINA. This brand, in my opinion, made some of the finest Swiss watches, with complicated and well built movements who do not fall below the large competitors such as Longines and Omega. They are very accurate and robust. This watch is fine example in great all original condition, is ready to wear, gift or add to your collection.
The watch houses a strong hi beat 919-1 automatic caliber running on 25 jewels with a quickset date. It is cased in a sturdy elegant gold plated case with stainless steel back, both in mint condition with an original flat acrylic crystal and an original signed crown.
The dial of this watch is an original factory made in gradient design, most elegant and in mint condition with an original set of hands.
This impressive CERTINA watch measures 36mm side to side (excluding crown) and 43mm from top lug to bottom lug.
Attached to this watch is its original, barely used at all original slim genuine leather band with an original signed buckle, all in near mint condition. This watch comes with the original box in excellent condition with just a bit of tear in the crown area but otherwise no damage and would make a great gift!
