Cyma 1920’s Men’s Watch

Gentlemen’s 1920’s Swiss Cyma windup cushion shape watch.

The gold tone dial is remarkably crisp, in near perfect condition, showing no deterioration whatsoever, with its well defined, very attractive stylized Arabic numerals, full chapter ring and sub second hand. The dial is signed CYMA and SWISS. The blued spade hour and minute hands and modern seconds hand are original. The Swiss made movement is running well and keeping good time. The crystal is original and has light wear. The crown is nicely knurled.   This is in remarkably good condition for a 90 year old watch.

This watch is a perfect example of the stylized models that represent the second generation of the vintage wristwatches, coming after the circular models that popularized the concept of the wrist worn timepiece during World War I.  The case measures 30mm across the case, not including the crown, and 35mm from lug-to-lug.

Cyma, Tavannes, and Tacy were all made by the same fine Swiss watch maker.
