You won’t believe how old this watch is

Hey everybody 👋

Yesterday I visited a watch fair in Zürich, Switzerland but since I’ve bought my Sinn 103 just a few days ago, I wasn’t really prepared yet to spend money on another watch. But just minutes before going home, I was shown this nice watch and the price was a joke. It fitted me very well size-wise and the salmon colored dial was a charm. What really pushed me over the edge of buying it, was the Landeron 47 movement inside. I’m just a huuuge fan of old mechanical Chronograph movements. So I bought it nonetheless. The watch was produced by Sally Watch Co. and sold under the „Chronographe Suisse“ label. It was made in the mid 1940‘s. My mind is blown. It runs at around +20 seconds per day, which is good enough for an 80y/o watch. It looks super classy and I appreciate the Patek vibes.

Yes, it was public indeed. There’s another one in 13 days in the Volkshaus Zürich.

That watch is classy! Just looking at it makes me want to smoke a cigar and drink absinthe. Great find.

A very attractive piece! I have one almost that old, a 1947 (birth year) Omega.
