Fritz Marti was one of the most important and eclectic inventors in matters of watchmaking. To him we owe the invention of Incabloc, of Incastar and dozens of other patents.





One of these patents is the “Preserval”, a plastic casing made ​​to ensure the impermeability of the movement and the dial of the watch.
This is an excerpt of the Swiss and French patent.





A couple of ads in which Preserval is highlighted.








This rare Marvin from the 30s uses the Preserval








The screw on the left is to adjust the racket without opening the shell.

The Preserval looks like a Swatch Watch with screws instead of glue :think:

Interesting fellow. Like most prolific inventors, only a few of the inventions mold the market. The rest make interesting posts on WUS :-!
