Ancre Chronometre

Description

SOLD

This is a vintage and possibly (unused) new old stock ca. 1930’s Ancre vintage watch. When we examined this watch, we noticed the finish was factory on the 22x38mm. stainless steel case. The dial has barely aged and the movement was shimmering, with no signs of being cleaned in the past. Even the supple band buckle appear 30’s and original! We just had the 15 jewel movement cleaned and is accurate. The blued steel hands look great. Early stainless steel watches are very collectable and uncommon, due to the fact steel was the most difficult metal to work with in the 30’s. We see fewer steel watches from this era compared to all metals. Chrome plated metal was more common. Collectors are beginning to hoard early steel watches and their prices should increase over time.
