You may remember this watch, I purchased some year or so ago, well it took me a long time to get it restored and services.
A hand made glass crystal had to me made in the shape of a 'radiator' and the Didisheim, or better known as Marvin movement serviced.
The dial albeit a little distressed, is 100% original, with original lume and hands, I decided not to touch that, so here we have a:
1927. Watch in the form of a Chevrolet auto radiator grille.
Movement made by H Didisheim (Marvin), Switzerland, Caliber 2 C2, manual wind, 6 jewels, flat hairspring.
Dial, silvered metallic, marked ‘CHEVROLET’ – original lume and markings.
Case, steel, inscribed on back: –“FOR MAKING QUOTA, 1927, USED CAR CAMPAIGN”PRIOR TO RESTORATION:
RESTORED - WITHOUT TOUCHING DIAL a 1927 pretty rare piece of American history.
