empressissi™ is pleased to offer this elegant 14K solid yellow gold PAUL BREGUETTE Swiss dress watch for men from the late 40s, with a quality manual wind movement. This watch is ready to wear, gift or add to your collection.
The watch houses an early FHF 86 caliber which was mostly in use by Girard Perregaux with its famous three fingers design, running on 17 jewels with sub seconds. It is cased in a signed original LAPWELL 14K solid gold case in yellow tone and comes with a mint crystal and good semi recessed crown.
The clean silver tone dial was professionally restored in our atelier with the correct print and has embossed gold plated markers and genuine diamonds and an original set of hands.
This PAUL BREGUETTE dress watch measures 25mm side to side (excluding crown) and 34mm from top lug to bottom lug and is relatively modest in size even for a vintage watch.
Attached to this watch is standard length, brand new 18mm wide quality HIRSCH genuine leather band in slim dark brown tone with an anti-allergic yellow tone buckle.
