Rare Agassiz worldtime14kt 1940s pocket watch, 45,5mm. on size.
This pocket watch is an attractive example of a world time pocket watch. While Louis Cottier's invention is perhaps most associated with Patek Philippe or Vacheron Constantin watches, he also made movements for brand such as Agassiz. Agassiz fitted Cottier's ingenious "world time" system to both pocket and wristwatches.
This examples is preserved in particularly stunning condition. Cased in 14k yellow gold, the watch has over time developed a light layer of patina, giving it great appeal and charisma. There is furthermore a very strong hallmark under the bow. The dial, having aged with light patina, displays the different time zones legibly, as all printing is intact over the years.

Most impressive is the movement, which, in our opinion untouched in its over 60 year lifespan, further enhanced by the fact that there are no service marks at all to the case back. The movement is also stamped "AXA" for A. Wittnauer & Co., denoting the watch was made for export. This is particularly fitted as the watch is cased in 14k gold.
