T his is very uncommon solid, 18k. ROSE gold, LARGE, 36mm. ESKA chronograph… circa 1950! .The Eska Watch Company was founded 1918 in Grenchen, Switzerland by S. & E. Kocher and was known for their chronograph watches. They also, in 1930, registered and produced fine watches under the the name “ROYCE” into the 1980’s. The Swiss made 17 Jewel, manually wound Eska, Valjoux 22 movement was just cleaned…sparkling…with all functions working perfectly! The solid, 18k. rose gold case is shimmering…no dings…not overpolished…not a light, flimsy case like the Suisse chronographs… more substantial, having pink gold square pushers and signed snap-back…perfect overall! The ORIGINAL two tone dial is stunning….alternating lighter to darker middle area…pink gold hands… red outer seconds register… only the slightest (mild) spotting only visible on a steep angle…not worth mentioning… all around very fine! I would feel safe saying that this is the finest ESKA CHRONOGRAPHE that you will find anywhere in the world! It is large in stature and will attract eyes to your wrist.
