Once in a while we come across a unique, off the beaten path type of vintage watch. This Baume & Mercier hand wound chronograph is the latest find to fall into this category. The first thing you will notice is the copper coloured dial. This colour is quite rare and gives the watch a little punch that makes it stand out on the wrist. Upon closer examination a few other design features begin to become evident. The chronograph hands are distinguished in red. The hour and minute hands are gold toned. The Arabic numbers are silver toned with a subtle drop shadow. This combination of colours and thoughtfulness of design conspire to make this watch irresistible to those who appreciate and admire the beauty of vintage watches. The movement is the rock solid, hand wound Landeron caliber 280. A unique feature of this movement is the method of stopping and resetting the chronograph indicators. As with most chronographs the top pusher starts the chronograph seconds hand. But then to stop the timing you will depress the bottom pusher, where you would normally use the top pusher. A second push of the bottom pusher then resets the chronograph seconds and minutes indicator back to the zero position. This watch was produced circa 1950 and appropriately shows it’s age, which in my opinion, is an important part of the charm when considering a vintage watch. This watch does not come with box or papers.
