empressissi™ is pleased to offer this elegant 14K solid yellow gold WITTNAUER dress watch for men from the late40s, with a quality manual wind movement. This watch is ready to wear, gift or add to your collection.

The clean pearl tone dial was professionally restored in our atelier with the correct print and has embossed gold plated markers and original set of hands.
This WITTNAUER dress watch measures 22mm side to side (excluding crown) and 32mm from top lug to bottom lug and is considered relatively modest in size even for a vintage watch.
