Hello,I am selling an old Swiss Wille Frres pocket watch / gusset, based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, in the canton of Neuchtel :Model identical to Lip Stop called "Parking" or "Parkmeter" produced at the same period, but in pocket watch version.
The 60-minute disk at 12:00, which resets via the push button, allowed a mark on the parking time that remained before having to return parts in the parking meter.The name "minStop" was used by several brands of the time, such as Buren or Vulcain, often with a case that was specific to each brand : I found the existence of two other pocket watch models of this type, a Paul Garnier "Minu-Stop" and a no name "minStop" :The hands, including the seconds, are the original ones. We found this same trio on Laurens minStop of the same time :Like the others, it is equipped with the Durowe 471-4 movement :CHARACTERISTICS :- Brand : Wille Frres- Model : minStop- Origin : Switzerland- Years : Late 1960's- Movement : Mechanical, with manual winding- Caliber : Durowe 471-4 (17 jewels, 21,600 A / h, shockproof)- Diameter : 37 mm- Dial : Iridescent gray- Index : Applied- Glass : curved Plexiglas- Bottom : Cliped- Weight : 27 grSTATUS : - The watch, which is entirely original, is in very good condition for a grandma of about fifty years (see photos).- Note a shot / lack of material on the periphery of the case in the extension of the index of 8:00, and a hair or a claw on the center of the dial (under the disc).- No trace of oxidation.WORKING ORDER :- The movement works perfectly: always in the same minute after 24h00 of operation, 40 hours of power reserve and perfect reset.OTHERS :- The watch was sold to me as gold-plated, although I did not see any punch to be able to affirm it.- But the very good state of its finish, without fading, for a watch of fifty years goes in this direction. A simple gold finish would probably not be as well preserved.PICTURES :The plexi:The inside of the bottom and the movement :The shock / lack of material on the periphery :The hair or the claw on the center of the dial :A very rare and very beautiful collector's item!PRICE :
