This is a very interesting and uncommon vintage 1950’s ETNA SWISS MADE vintage watch that displays the date and also; a rotating bezel aligns the day of the week manually with the date! Notice on the rotating bezel the words “MOD DEP” meaning they were applying for a patent for this new function! The 37mm. stainless steel snap back case with sprawling lugs is in fine condition…a hefty sized watch that demands a glance by passers-by when wearing on the wrist! The original eggshell dial with red date register, sub-seconds, luminous, blued steel pencil style hands, reflective Arabic numerals and rotating day of the week bezel is spotless… spectacular original condition! The manual winding SWISS MADE movement was recently cleaned with all functions working properly. These type of complications are the watches that will become the future collectables.
