Jakob Josef Mauritz Breitschmid was a watchmaker in Lucerne in 1854, as his business bloomed he hired an apprentice named Eduard Jakob Gubelin who eventually married his daughter Bertha and then bought into Breitschmid's business. In an attempt to improve their situation Breitschmid and Gubelin moved their shop to a location were royalty and the upper classes were frequent visitors. The rest, as they say, is history. Today Gubelin is a name that is world famous. We are delighted to be able to offer a rare rectangular E. Gubelin in a stainless steel case with its original finish dial. Purists please take note! Take a look at the "Zoom-In" photos to see how wonderful this dial is. It displays a very interesting minute track with contrasting border and a large seconds bit. The unusual hand shape completes the package. The fifteen jewel movement is in pristine condition and our master watchmakers have it winding, running, and keeping time to an amazing standard that is as good as factory new. The Swiss really knew how to make a fantastic watch and this is the proof of the pudding. The stainless steel case is in very nice condition showing only minor wear for a piece of this vintage. Attached to this cool watch is a very interesting period band that carries the Art Deco theme around the wrist. If you are looking for a rare watch circa 1930 then this may be the one for you! Remember all of our timepieces come with our famous one year warranty for parts and labor so that you may buy with confidence.
