Attractive diver with very good qualities. Chronometer grade automatic movement ETA2784 (same as used in Tudor Sub-mariner). Numbered Monnin 42mm case. From the late seventies.

NOK12500


This watch is in very good condition. It has seen little hard use. it keeps accurate time with its high beat (28800) movement. Case is numbered 348764. The bezel is worth special mention: It is narrower than many, but is special by its use of steel numbers and accents cast in a bakelite (?) resin. The usual "dot" is luminescent and also well protected in the same resin. All luminous material is still chargeable, except the seconds hand which needs a refill. This watch will be checked and cleaned before delivery.

The watch brand "City" history is according to the following source: http://www.equationoftime.com/forums/showthread.php?41846-City-Professional-Diver-Small-Tweaks-to-Make-Perfect-Watch City is/was a Swedish brand that was owned by a company called JP Brandt AB in Stockholm. Brandt was a importer of Swiss watches and City was their low end (not in a bad way though) watch brand and the City models were also branded Facit, Moretime, Nilax and others during the 60's and 70's.
