This is a rare find indeed!
Manufactured in France in the early 1950's this is strong running, 17 jewel men's Lathin (KINGSTONE WATCH COMPANY) wristwatch.
The chrome over brass case measures 32.3 mm/ 1.27" in diameter, excluding crown and lugs and surrounds a very clean silver dial complimented by luminous gold hour and minute hands, gold sweep second hand, and beautiful raised gold Art deco numbers and markers.
Please note: My highly magnified photos show some light brassing on the case but, when worn, it is not visible to the naked eye.
The French, 17 jewel, manual wind movement sets and winds effortlessly, is running well and keeping very good time.
It has a screw down back with newly installed "O" ring and is matched with a vintage stainless steel flex bracelet which suits it perfectly.
