£69.00Price

A Stunning looking Moeris Gentleman's wristwatch circa 1955 - The watch is very original with some patina to the dial, hence the price - All works as it should. The case is 34mmx41mm. The Moeris Watch Factory was established in 1893 in Saint Imier. The company was a high-volume maker, producing more than 10 million watches by 1957. At that time, the company sold upscale watches with 17 or 25 jewels and Incabloc shock protection. In 1966, Moeris introduced a licensed watch with the likeness of James Bond.

Moeris became part of Rayville by 1974, alongside Blancpain. At this time, the company pivoted to focus on historic replica pocket watches. For the next decade, the Moeris

brand was found on many pocket watches with historic designs. The company listed its address as Villerit, like Rayville, by 1976. In 1978 Moeris closed its doors.

In 1980, ownership of Moeris passed to Tissot. By this point, the company was focused on skellingtonized pocket watches and pendant watches for ladies. Soon, the

company was located at Le Locle with Tissot. It appears to have ceased production after 1985.
