torvicbestThis Swiss Made mechanical sliver tone watch dates to about 1954. Nearly sixty years old and it winds, sets and runs and keeps time well. Beyond that, it is a feast for the eyes and a treat for your wrist.

This is an unusually strikingly designed “Bull’s Eye Dial” vintage wrist watch, probably inspired by the Jaeger LeCoultre “Memovox”, which it resembles, and which featured the same black and white with gold styling. You could pay thousands for one of those, or go for this handsome Torvic De Luxe Art Deco Two Tone Dial Men’s Swiss Watch with tremendous value.

Features include:
– Textured dial with amazing converging lines (zoom first photo for detail)
– Highly desirable black and white bull’s-eye design
– Gold tone hour markers – combination of numerals and arrowheads
– Gold tone hour minute hands
– Nicely knurled crown
– Stainless steel case
– snap back case

This Swiss Made watch is furnished with a great vintage stainless steel flat link men’s watch band marked MADE IN GERMANY. The band shows some signs of wear but is still good looking and wearable, in good condition over all.

TORVIC WATCH CO. had its USA headquarters at 62 W. 47 Street. New York, NY. The building today houses “The World’s Largest Jewelry Exchange.” Torvic also made a cool watch/lighter combination that can sometimes be found on line. Torvic Watch Company was listed in the Jeweler’s Circular as late as 1970.
