    Larex Luxury

    And next for your delight is a Larex Luxury 21 jewel hand winding wristwatch featuring a Langendorf 1065 21 jewel movement:

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    A 21 jeweled winder... interesting. This from about 1950 you think?

    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Dr. R gives the 1060 as c. 1955. Presumably this is a variant, so maybe late fifties.

    Having said that, it looks quite different from the 1060.

    This is an interesting movement of a design I've
    never before seen.

    I assume the escape cock is hidden beneath the train bridge and
    and it's unusual that the crown and ratchet wheels are also hidden beneath
    the barrel bridge.

    Most unusual and thanks for posting that.

    the 1060 has shock protection so would have been a later example...
