This is a Favre Leuba watch from their golden era in production with the in house , double barrel caliber 251. Acquired from the original owner's family in Switzerland , unlike all Swiss watches this watch never left the city it was manufactuered in (Geneve) It belonged to a Swiss Railroad Operator and is in stunning condition. The case edges are knife sharp , never being polished , the crystal is original , and even the thin line of tritium on the hands have aged without any cracks or pressure. It is extremely hard to find a FL from this period in this condition. One of the nicest and sharpest champagne dials I have ever seen.
