Helbros "Tonneau"

Surely....... you have heard of Helbros...no?  Helbros was a household name in America until the 1970's! They were a company that started by assembling Swiss movements made by other companies and they competed directly with Hamilton and Bulova for the American watch buyer. Today Helbros is owned by Jules Jurgensen. They provide a very affordable and good value proposition for the entry level buyer. Helbros made some watches themselves but were much more of an assembler/marketer than a manufacturer. This is the reason that you can find movements in their cases that came from Switzerland, Germany, and France. The good news for the buyer today is that all of their movements were solid, well engineered, timepieces that one can buy at a very attractive price point. This particular Helbros is a very attractive seven jewel, yellow gold-filled, tonneau shaped wristwatch with a stainless steel back for wearing longevity.  The case measures 29mm in width, by 35mm lug to lug, by 9mm thick.  We have fitted it with a brown 16mm snake grain band that seems to suit it to a "T".   This is a great "entry watch" into the world of vintage wristwatches for a modest investment.  Our head watch maker has lovingly restored it to the same performance level it had back in 1936.  Our one year warranty will allow you to buy this one with confidence!
