I finally decided to go on and get parted with this double signature Juvenia + JW Benson chronograph from the 50’s
J.W. Benson Ltd was a highly regarded London watch/clockmakers who traded in England between 1847 and 1973.
Their store was located on famous Old Bond street in London before it was took over by Tiffany & Co.
This 3 registers chronograph is powered by a Venus 172 calibre with column wheel, same mouvement used in the early Breitling for instance.
The watch size is 35mm without the crown.
It has Blued steel Hands and a inside blue tachymeter scale.
Chronograph start and stop properly and is keeping good time.
The watch is signed on the dial, inside the caseback and on the mouvement.
It comes with a non signed, riveted, expandable oyster bracelet, probably not original with the watch. The bracelet has no stretch at all.
No box, no paper but a vintage unsigned warranty booklet is coming with the watch.
The watch is located in France
I am asking 1850 euros (PayPal to a friend) + 35 euros DHL worldwide shipping
