The watch appears modern, but the cream colored hour marks are actually luminous paint that has lost its emissivity. This would have taken several decades. Typical of Jean, the styling is miles ahead of it's time. The design's aviation influence is unmistakable. The fabulous dagger shaped hands are the one component that betrays the watch's actual age. Other components of this watch are preserved in near mint condition with minimal wear.
The subtly shaped case measures 35mm X 41 mm including the crown. The lugs are gently eased towards their tips and the bezel has one shallow step. The watch is signed: on the dial, "JEAN PERRET GENEVE SWISS MADE"; the movement, "SWISS 17 JEWEL FHF 73"; and on the back, "25 STAINLESS STEEL BACK WATERPROOF INCABLOC ANTIMAGNETIC ". It bears serial # 209 705 and will fit a wrist of up to 8". The vintage Kreisler band is also quite nice. Please visit my store to view other listings, and take up to 7 days to pay for any item.
