Movado Monopusher Mappin& Webb signed dial 1940s
Here we have a Movado Monopusher from the 1940s, a wonderful example of an unique and rare timepiece. The very special feature of this WRISTCLASSIC is the big monopusher above the crown. In addition, this beautiful timepiece is signed by Mappin & Webb, a famous jewellery company in the UK, which makes this watch extra-rare and incomparable. This stunning WRISTCLASSIC comes with a light polished step case in great condition with sharp edges. Dating to the 1940s this classic model measures 33 mm. The dial is allover in clean condition with a great patina with only light signs of use. Worth mentioning is also the eye-catching second hand in a deep red, which correlates perfectly with the monopusher function of measuring the exact time. This WRISTCLASSIC is powered by an impressive movement, running strong and keeping time well. The watch comes with an unworn handcrafted leather strap. This Movado Monopusher is a very rare timepiece and really impossible to find again.
