Farex Stepcase Chrono 1940s

this is an extremely rare and overwhelmingly beautiful Farex Chronograph from the late 1940s.The brand Farex is only known to very few collectors, as it only existed for more or less a decade between 1940s and 50s. It was founded in 1941 by Georges Farine in La Chaux-de-Fonds, as one of the smaller watchbrands of that time, and is mainly known for the oustandingly beautiful gilt dials with copper indicies and hands, coming without any radium lume. Only very few have been produced in stepcases and less than a handful may still exist today.

the valjoux 23 powered chronograph, with 35mm steel compressorcase, convinces with so many original details, like the big oversized crown and pushers, a domed plexi and of course the overwhelmingly gorgeous copper galvanised giltdialand and the  unpolished stepcase. The hole condition of this collectors piece is seriously remarkable as almost mint, if you consider it´s age of almost 80 years. Without any doubt this is one of the most beautiful chronographs in all aspects, we could ever offer for sale on rarebirds. It comes on a period-correct bonklip steelbracelet and a black lizzard-leatherband with steel buckle in addition //  price upon request over this link
