1950’s ARSA TRIPLE CALENDAR MOON PHASE WATCH JUMBO 38mm HORN LUGS CASE WITH BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL DIAL

1950’s ’Arsa’ triple calendar moon-phase watch jumbo 38mm horn-lugs case with beautiful original dial.

This exceptional quality gentlemen’s wrist-watch was manufactured by the well known swiss manufacturer ‘Arsa’. The company of Auguste Reymond S.A. manufactured a range of complicated chronographs and others such as this beautiful moon-phase wrist watch.

A hand winding movement with triple calendar and moon-phase using the Arsa calibre 212 in a 20 micron rolled rose gold case. A huge watch, measuring just under 38mm across the bezel, not including the crown and 49mm tip-to-tip.

The case, with elaborate horned-spider lugs is in excellent condition. there are no scratches or dings and no wear at all to the rolled-gold finish.

The beautiful original two-tone silvered dial with blue calendar ring and applied gold figures is truly stunning, with just a hint of vintage patina. Signed by the retailer ‘Mirza – Antimagnetic’ with ‘Swiss below the six.

The calendar and moon-phase windows complement the dial layout perfectly, not too plain, not too cluttered.

The moon-phase disc inside the subsidiary seconds circle is truly wonderful and still the rich blue and gold colour as it was when first manufactured.

All of the hands, including the red-tipped calendar hand are the originals.

Each calendar function can be adjusted by pressing one of the three pushers set discretely into the sides of the case and it still retains the original winding crown.

The hand-wound movement has 17 jewels and is of very nice quality. Winds and sets correctly and all of the calendar functions click over nicely as they should.

Fitted with a new, quality crocodile-grain leather strap. a very, very good looking triple calendar moon-phase watch from a well respected manufacturer and highly collectable.
