This is a rare Swiss Watch made circa 1890-1900 and was made for the South American Market.
These watches were actually made for order by a cigar company in Argentina and were given away with boxes of the Mazolini Particular.
The unusual feature of this watch is the dial: below the 12 position there is an aperture, which reveals the hour. Around this is an arc with numbers from 0 – 60 and a pointer. This pointer indicates the minutes. As the watch ticks the pointer will move along indicating the passing minutes. When the hand reached 60, the hand will fly back to 0 and the HOUR number, will jump to the next hour. To see this watch work, please click on the link below

The watch is working well. It flies back properly when it reaches 59 – please note that when you set the hands, it flies back at the 55 and the hand setting is VERY STIFF
The watch keeps excellent time but HAS not been cleaned or serviced and so is sold “as is” with NO warranty of refunds accepted
