£595.00GBP

The Pierce Watch Company was founded in Biel by Leon Levy in 1883. The company had gone from strength to strength from its foundation and employed 1500 people by 1910. The Royal Air Force awarded a contract to Pierce to develop and construct of the pilots watch “Flight Calendar”. Pierce were incredibly efficient with their production techniques and unlike watch brands of the period, Pierce developed and manufactured their own watch movements for their timepieces. Whereas many similar sized brands or even bigger companies sourced movements from notable manufactures such as Valjoux, Landeron & Venus to name a few.

What's On Offer
The present triple calendar moon phase watch holds inside, the Pierce 103CLD movement. The chrome topped case wraps really nicely around this highly attractive dial. Moon phase dials are highly sought after and generally command a premium over other similar time only pieces due to the additional complications when manufacturing such a watch but also the additional elegance it brings to the dial and this Pierce certainly fits that category rather well.

The dial is really crisp and one could say it's almost flawless. Very little sign of wear to the dial and it remains highly legible with wonderful flashes of colour with the outer seconds track in a vibrant shade of blue. The dial applications also remain sharp and eye catching which gives this watch further desirability. The case shows more signs of wear than the dial but nothing that indicates a lack of care during previous ownership and the present watch would be a wonderful addition to anyone's collection with plenty of years of life yet to be enjoyed.
