Welsbro Military Style Stainless Steel Swiss Watch – 17 Jewels

Vintage Men’s Watch – Welsbro Military Style Stainless Steel Swiss Watch – 17 Jewels – White Dial – Red Sweep Second Hand

The Welsbro //

Welsbro watches are good quality 17 jewel movements that were bought from one of a few Swiss watch movement manufacturers (such as AS or ETA). The cases are also good quality, being either stainless steel, gold plated, or solid gold, usually with a very well-thought-out design offering tremendous style. The company was headed by Samuel Weissman, Sylvia Shapiro and Florence Weissman, doing business as Weissman Watch Co., Welsbro Watch Co. and Weisco Watch Co., 20 W. 47th St. (1943), NYC. We believe Mrs. Weissman did much of the selection of case designs and she had a very good eye for elegant and unusual cases. This makes vintage Welsbro Watches stand out on the wrist.unnamed[2]

This mid century modern vintage men’s watch has a military style that is immediately recognizable and very popular with collectors. The round stainless steel case provides harmony and style to the crisp white dial signed “Welsbro 17 Jewels Antimagnetic”, with Arabic numerals and a red sweep second hand. The lugs are integral with the case, making a sleek appearance. The stainless steel back is attached with four screws and is signed “ID Watch Case Co / Wearever / Stainless Steel Back” The high quality construction provides peace of mind for a life time of wearing and handing on as an heirloom. This handsome watch from the delovelyness collection shows perfectly with any wardrobe choice, from formal to casual.
