Gübelin Two Register Chronograph - 1950s

Gübelin Two Register Chronograph - 1950s

The post war era brought a resurgence of refined watchmaking to Europe.  During the war, both the Axis and Allied watch manufactures were producing simple, reliable chronometers to support an array of military needs.  But when the war ended, and these simple military timepieces were no longer in high demand, manufactures on both sides of the Atlantic returned to the craft of designing and producing beautiful timepieces.  

The European luxury retailer E. Gübelin was no exception.  During the post-war years, Gübelin, Switzerland's version of Tiffany, began working with small swiss manufactures to create gorgeous gentleman's pieces replete with form and function.  

This particular timepiece was produced for Gübelin in the mid 50s, and features a manual-wound 14 ligne, Valjoux 22 movement.   With its machined steel 38mm "tub" case design, this exceptional timepiece represents the quintessential union of elegance and wearability.  The gorgeously patinated dial and gold-colored handset offset the steel case perfectly, making this watch ideal for formal and casual wear alike.

While we occasionally find pieces signed by Gübelin, it is a true rarity to find one manufactured for them!


Stainless Steel case is approximately 38mm (excluding crown).

Overall Condition: Steel case is in great condition, over all, with only light marks from wear and age. Original champagne-colored dial is exceptionally clean with a gorgeous, even patina. Original handset is in like-new condition. Chronograph pushers are crisp.

Includes one 20mm handmade genuine ostrich strap.
