Description

Stunning 37.5 mm PIERCE WW2 Aviators Long Play 60 min Chronograph c1942 ~ Absolute Top Shelf Column Wheel Movement & Top Shelf Watch!! GUARANTEED 100% ORIGINAL ~ DIAL INCLUDED !!

YOU WILL SIMPLY NOT BUY A BETTER LONG PLAY COLUMN WHEEL CHRONOGRAPH IN ORIGINAL CONDITION WITH A BETTER DIAL , FROM THE EARLY 1940s AT THIS PRICE ~ ANYWHERE ~ AT ANYTIME !!

How many Breitling from 1942 have You seen with such a Mint & Handsome Dial as This Pierce!!
How many Breitling from 1942 have You seen with a column wheel movement , Mint handsome dial , 37.5 case & such fine running / operating condition ??
I guess it may be Zero.
Keep an 'open mind' on this watch , doe your research & you will come to the same factual realization that I have ~ that PIERCE were one of the most advanced ,Unique , talented & stand alone , top quality Swiss watch manufacturers that has created Top Quality watches {for their targeted markets} that have Clearly out lasted almost ALL Major brands of their time.
I.E. How many watches by Omega Breitling Rolex etc etc ~ that have so many , such a high % of watches from the early 1940's that have survived the test of time {pun intended} & remain in such Superb cond; such as this & a high % of their other watches have!! Very Very few , is any!

THIS WATCH IS EXCEPTIONAL. THE VALUE IS EXCEPTIONAL WHEN COMPARED TO ALL OTHER 1940's COLUMN WHEEL MOVEMENTS WITH 37.5 MM CASES IN SUCH MINT CONDITION AS THIS STUNNING PIERCE!!
PLEASE COMPARE !!

Probably The Most "lesser known"{& best value] early wristwatch manufactures of Top Quality Chronographs of the 1930's & 40's & a totally Unique watch company as well !!

The dial is not only in exceptional condition ~ it is also Guaranteed to be in 100% Original condition!!!
Hard to believe that a chronograph dial from the early 40's could be in true Mint condition ~ Yet that is Exactly the case with this stunning c1942 WW2 PIERCE CHRONOGRAPH ! {& not the first seen from the maker to be MINT}

Beautiful dial & hands , tachymeter in excellent condition with bright coloured ink.
An aviators dress watch almost!
One of the best case shapes / designs of the 1940's that you will find !!

RARE LONG PLAY 60 MINUTE CHRONOGRAPH , SO DIFFICULT TO FIND , AS SO RARE FROM THIS DATE!!!
THIS IS A SERIOUS QUALITY WATCH , IN EVERY SINGLE ASPECT & OFFERS GENUINELY GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY WHEN COMPARED TO ANY E.Q.U.A.L. WATCH WITH THE SAME FEATURES!!

Manufacturing as a "100% stand alone" watch maker & being one of the very very few {if not only} watch company of their time to make All their own movements , Including column wheel chronographs!!!

At a time when all others including Major named companies were buying in , at best , base movements adapting them {to varying degree's , some not at all} then calling it a Rolex or Breitling etc Cal; **???*% etc >>>>&gt­;>>>>&gt­;>>>>&gt­;>>> Where as the genuinely Mighty Pierce , made ALL of their own movements.

That may be one thing , but their movements were equal & in many cases , better than the what the Major brand names were using in their watches!!
That places PIERCE in a highly exclusive tier of pre-1950's watch makers.

I firmly believe that as this lesser known Swiss watch company becomes more well known , more widely known & more newish collectors start to learn about this important watch manufacturer ~ both demand & of course values will increase in a very significant manner!!

One Major aspect that PIERCE did better than 99% of watch companies in that period , Including Rolex , Omega , Breitling or Anyone else ....... was >>>>&gt­;>>>>&gt­;>>> Their DIALS !!
I have No idea how But watch dials from the 1930's & 1940's on PIERCE watches are usually in amazing condition , hands included!!
I have Never seen any watch company , Major or Minor , making watches in the above 20 year period that made dials that have stood the test of time & use {pardon the pun} than the amazing PIERCE WATCH COMPANY!

This watch is 100% Original , Including the Dial !!! It has Never been re-painted or touched up in anyway shape or form!!
With that fact eing Guaranteed!!
The colours & condition of the dial & hands , sweep hand & even register hands is simply stunning & near unsurpassed!!

Combine that with the beautifully designed / shaped 37.5 mm case >>>>&gt­;>>>>&gt­; and you have one hell of a handsome watch!
Combine those 2 facts with the 100% 'in house' center wheel/column shaft movement & you have a Top Quality watch & with nothing but positives going for it & plenty of them too!!

Recently serviced , running & operating beautifully {no surprises there} ~ this 2 button Pierce Chronograph is one hell f a watch & offers Excellent Value for Money!!
