I came across this unusual Cyma-Tavannes watch made of solid silver and had to buy it. Now, I am trying to date the watch, but I am finding very little information on the webz about it. I know it pre-dates 1966 since that is when the Cyma-Tavannes Watch partnership was ended. That said, the characteristics of the watch lead me to believe it is much older than the sixties anyway, I am guessing, the forties? Aside from it being quite heavy, (the silver) and rather large for a watch from its era, it has been fitted with a very unusual face protector, or at least that is what I believe it was intended for? It has one last very unique feature to it:sneaky2:, but I will save that for later conversation:confused1:, assuming I get any interest on the subject of the date of manufacture of the watch.:001_tongue: I haven't been on here in a while, but hopefully some of my old friends still frequent the forum and, more important, they are still as smart as they used to be! Thanks!
