I catched this beauty in auction as I liked the patina and the 3, 6, 9, 12 on the dial. This particular model is from the "Chaux de fonds" line, named probably after the swiss city.
It is a Philip Watch, a brand founded in 1858 in Napoli 🇮🇹and made in Switzerland. They still exist (!!!) and produce nice watches for reasonable price.
I also heard that they had to add the "watch" noun in their name to avoid confusion with an other famous brand 😅!
But I have to say that, before this auction, I did not know those watches, besides their respectable 160+ years of existence...
Does anybody else know or own a Philip Watch? A search on watchcrunch does not lead to many results. I would be curious to know... 🙏🏻
