Watch Analog watch Everyday carry Clock Wrist


It uses a "Monnin" type case, identical (proportions) to that of the Jacques Bianchi Army and Dugena Nautica T-200, except that this one is not engraved "patent n ° 503,305 from M.R.P. S.A.":

Case used by many brands and casemakers of the time, whether equipped with a mechanical or quartz movement (Cf. Watchmaking crisis of the time):

With its 100% metal bezel (without insert), it gives it an air of Camy Sevenseas:
