Wittnauer Gold Cap Electro-Chron & Orig. Bracelet
This is a great looking Wittnauer Electro-Chron watch, one of the many marketers of the Landeron 4750, the first Swiss Electric movement, introduced in 1961. It is FULLY SERVICED, sets, and runs great, and keeps excellent time, and will come with a brand new battery freshly installed. The watch has a large size case, so goes well with today's fashion of larger watches. It also has a nice battery hatch in the caseback, so the battery can be changed without having to expose the movement to potential dirt and damage. This is an uncommon example with solid gold capped bezel, lugs, and original gold filled "W" marked bracelet.
These were futuristic watches, and the watch companies certainly did their best to capitalize on their uniqueness. This would be a great watch to add to a vintage Electric Watch collection.
