Excellent Avia 17 Jewel Gentleman's Watch 1970's


An excellent condition 1970's Gentlemans watch having a Swiss hand-winding movement which is working well. The watch measures 33mm diameter excluding the winding crown and the lugs and is very slim, at 5mm. The case is polished brass and is in excellent condition, the crystal is new. Fingernails are needed for the unlta minimal crown. The history of the Avia Watch Company goes way back to 1887 when HV Degoumois was established at La Chaux de Fonds. The company then moved to Neuchâtel in 1933 and and the Avia brand was formally registered by Degoumois on the 30th of January 1937 (See Mikrolisk – The horological trade mark index). Avia made good quality mechanical lever movement watches, in a range of cases from solid gold through to gold plated and stainless steel. During their history Degoumois provided watches and movements for a number of other brands including A. Wittnauer & Co., New York, and the Ball Watch Company. This is very much a testament to the quality of the Avia mechanical watches.
