The Watch

Here we have a 35mm 1950s Fleuron 18ct Rose Gold Manual that curves over your wrist towards the attractive Bombe Lugs that sit majestically on the two-piece case, this distinctive case was made by Grimm case makers of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. A lug-to-lug length of 43mm and a case thickness of just 8.5mm ensures a comfortable fit on your wrist, on the right side is a Rose gold crown. The smooth bezel holds a domed acrylic crystal above the stunning textured gold-toned radiating sunburst patterned dial, an outer minute track is precisely executed with printed Arabic numerals, raised Rose gold-toned dagger indexes and 12, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 numerals mark the hours. Elegant Rose gold-toned Dauphine's hands are complemented by a tapered sweeping second hand, at 12 o’clock we have the Fleuron motif and 17 Jewels printed underneath and at 6 o’clock “Incabloc” completes this sophisticated dress watch. On the reverse, an 18ct Rose Gold snap-on case back, inside you find the stamped Swiss Gold Hallmarks with the head of Helvetia for 18ct Gold, a manually wound AS 1187, 17 jewels, beating at a leisurely 18,000 beats per hour. The watch comes paired with an 18mm suede strap.


Personal Note

Some watches I am given the opportunity to buy back, this was one of them and I jumped at the opportunity! This 1950s Fleuron is housed in an 18ct Pink Gold 35mm case and features the most incredible "Bombe Lugs" I have seen. I would not hesitate if you have been after a solid gold vintage watch that doesn't break the bank, the value in the piece is incredible and worth every penny.


The Brand

Fleuron was founded in Beaucourt, France in 1896. Sometime in the mid-20th Century, they moved closer to the heart of the Swiss watch industry, taking advantage of the many manufacturers of cases and movements.
