$483.00 USD

A Charming Vintage Manual Orfina Dress Watch With a Jewelled Silver Dial, Powered by the ETA 1080, c.1950s. 

The Orfina Watch Company was founded in Grenchen, Switzerland in 1922. From the outset, the company was focused on building durable, practical, and robust watches. To this end, they achieved a great deal of success in producing, aviation, navigational and military wristwatches.

What’s On Offer 

A rather charming 1950s dress watch from Orfina with a beautiful silver dial boasting jewelled hour plots and elegant Dauphine hands. The watch has a distinct vintage look and at just under 30mm is slight in proportions. The case sides and back are crafted from stainless steel with rose gold-topped lugs and bezel which looks rather stunning. Although the dial indicates that this watch is waterproof - we could not guarantee this given the age of the piece. 

It is powered by the ETA calibre 1080 which launched in 1950 and its construction was pioneering for nearly all manual wind movements of that decade. This watch is running well and looks very pretty on the wrist, it would certainly make a beautiful vintage addition to any collection.
