This vintage Rone is a really beautiful watch that winds, works and keeps good time. The movement is original and incorporates the anti shock incabloc jewels on the balance pivots.
The crystal (acrylic) is original but has been polished with previous scratches removed.
I can't date this watch exactly but looking at the style I would estimate that it would date from the late 50's to early 60's
Anthony here in the workshop has a special hobby of taking vintage watches
apart, cleaning them, re-oiling the parts, replacing any broken parts and
putting a new strap (original strap is included if we still have it).
Restored to its original condition with lasting quality, it is sure to be
an eye-catching piece.

As with all vintage watches, there will be signs of genuine wear and use. These
really enhance the beauty of these watches as they are evidence of a history.
Every blemish, every scratch is a nod to its past.
On this watch, we have noticed that the case has some of its plating worn off
The crystal (acrylic face) has a couple of very minor blemishes that could not be eliminated. The
dial, although in really good condition for its age will have some minor
marks and the hands will likewise have some signs of age.
Note that the photos are photos of this particular watch and form part of the
description of the piece.
