Birks Military Style Vintage 1940's 17j Huguenin Manual Wind Movement Super Clean
325 350 $325.00 - $335.00
Birks was and still is Canada's premier jeweler. Prior to the quartz crisis, Birks produced some fantastic watches such as this military style watch. At this point in time Birks was just developing their own movements, they partnered with Eterna and Huguenin - all these companies are still in business today with 100% continuity; that cannot be said for most companies that started in the 1800's like Birks and Huguenin. The watch features an original silver dial marked "Birks" on the dial, there is some aging on the dial as noted in the pictures. In real life, this age mark is not distracting at all. This watch is all original including the frequently missing dust cover. Very well executed from a design standpoint with features like anti-magnetic, shock protection and a full stainless steel case, this watch is a winner at an affordable price. Serviced and ready to wear or collect.
