Here we have an extremely rare vintage military style wristwatch from the Solvil Paul Ditisheim watch company of Geneva, Switzerland. This high grade, all stainless steel timepiece is in excellent all original condition with very rare black dial and center seconds movement. Ditisheim was probably the leading watchmaker of his time and started this wonderfully creative and stylish company in 1868, closing production in 1945. This would be a very late example, right near the end of the companies life. They produced top notch chronometer grade movements and always had an wonderful sense of style and design in there cases and dials. This is a rare late example in superb condition.
