La Phare 1950s Chronograph 18K 750 Rose gold midsize 33mm rare Vintage watch

1. Super rare watch ✅
2. Just Serviced 17 Jewels L248 Landeron Movement ✅
3. Chronograph Complication ✅
4. Watch can be viewed in our Norwich, England shop ✅
5. 18K / 750 Rose Gold ✅

It's Mechanical (Hand-Winding) and working perfectly. It will need a daily hand wind if being used daily.

Please be realistic with condition and do not expect new. Please study the photos but overall good condition for used / vintage dating back to the 1950s.

The chronograph is obviously a useful / essential tool for some. A new good quality black or brown leather strap will be supplied. Please message us your choice shortly after checkout.

The watch is 33mm which is deemed midsize / unisex in the industry and will suit a perhaps a medium to small man's wrist. The watch is modeled on a 17.50cm wrist.

The market for ultra rare vintage watches is strong at the moment. This makes it an solid investment especially as these will only get rarer as the years go by. Perhaps a great watch to pass onto a son / grandson one day.

Some Background on the Le Phare brand

We can't blame you if you've never heard the name 'Le Phare,' but you shouldn't let the brand's relative obscurity concern you. Le Phare was the brand name for the Jean d'Eve manufacturing company which minted in Switzerland in the late 1800s. Jean d'Eve won several awards for watchmaking in the early 1900s and was so successful and reknown that by 1970, it was the second largest Swiss manufacture of chronographs.

Counted among Le Phare's successes was the contracting of Valjoux for its movements - highly precise, robust movements that found their way into various watches of the era, including the Rolex Daytona. The venerable Valjoux 72c (“c” for calendar) movement powers the timekeeping mechanism and complications of this particular piece, and is without a question one of the best manually-wound chronograph calibers ever created. The triple-calendar version of the Valjoux movement displays the day, date and month, in addition to a 12-hour chronograph with central seconds counter. The silky silver-tone dial and gold-tone Arabic hour markers contrast beautifully with the subtle blue accents of the outer calendar ring and blue-tipped date hand.
