Great original 1940's Orfina bumper auto gent's watch early automatic

Check this out! You're looking at an early bumper automatic watch by Orfina! It's 100% original and working great. If you search it on line, you can find pictures from Swiss magazines from 1945-1946 advertising this very model. Let's take a closer look! The chrome plated case is the worst thing about this watch. it shows much wear and pitting, as seen on the photographs. Still, this is isn't overly distracting, expecially since everything else is in such good nick for its age! The face and hands are near perfect. I do personally find the face quite stunning... The crown is also original. It shows slightly less wear than the case and is also 100% functional. The 15 jewel bumper movement is, of course, original to the watch. It runs perfect and the watch keeps pretty good time over a 24 hour period. Obviously, like with all vintage watches, a service is in order if you want it as a daily wearer. The watch measures a comfortable 35mm across excluding crown and lugs. This is a standard size for men's watches of that period. I try to describe my items as accurately as possible. Please don't hesitate to ask any question that you might have and I will respond within 24 hours. If you leave me your email address, I would also be more than happy to provide you with additional photographs!
This is an extremely reluctant sale but I am relocating
