Description

This Extremely Rare Marvin Hermetic Triple Register Chronograph c1940s 36m gents watch is one for the serious collectors of fine Swiss vintage watches or those with refined tastes.

From one of my personal favourite Swiss Chrono manufacturers of the 30’s , 40’s & 1950’s    ~   Mighty Marvin!

Note:~   The watch had not been ‘cloth buffed’  before the photo’s were taken and had several hand prints over the case when the pic’s were taken.

In my opinion ,  Marvin ,  and one of their aliases Election , made some of the best chrono’s of the day ….. during the 1930s , 1940s & into the 50s!

The appealing rose gold  ‘piston pusher’s , crown & case front has developed a fantastic patina / hue to the rose gold and add’s considerably to the overall vintage aesthetic.

This watch is genuinely good value when compared to any market ,  beit the international or domestic.
Recently professionally serviced in April 2018 by the previous owner and is is running and functioning beautifully and we are happy to sell this rare vintage Marvin triple register hermetic chronograph with our complimentary warranty.

The thick and solid rose gold filled / stainless steel 36m case is in excellent condition with only minimal and expected usage marks and a testament to the case makers quality.

The original hands have become ‘skeleton hands’  due to the luminescence shrinking and dislodging over the past 70 years ,  adding a fantastic appearance to the dial.

The hands , chrono sweep & register hands are all original ,  as are the pushers & rose gold crown  ……….. making this Extremely Rare Marvin Hermetic Triple Register Chronograph c1940s 36m ,  when all the other aspects are taken into account …… a watch for serious consideration.

Powered by the legendary yet lesser seen Valjoux R72 ,  which is in excellent condition ,  has just been serviced & is running & functioning beautifully  ………..  as you would expect from this watch!

This is a genuine investment grade vintage watch and one that has increased in value at very considerable margins over the past 6 or 8 years!!

This is another watch that the camera {or photographer}  could not capture accurately!
For reasons unknown ,  some watches ‘love the camera’ ,  while others clearly do not …… no matter what we try , with some watches they simply ‘refuse to be photographed’ accurately!
This is certainly one such watch.
We have tried to get around that fact , as best we can ,  by providing around 18 photos of the watch.

With the good news being that it will arrive looking much better than you may expect!
As we often hear back from our customers.
Being sold at a genuinely great price and we encourage comparison!
