A gold on steel dress watch with a linen dial! This prime example of the Certina New Art line is in a very nice condition, the curved dial with the applied gold markers heightened with onyx inserts stand out nicely to match the gold hands that are filled with black also, except for lume at the tips. The high quality 25-651 automatic movement beats very accurately, although not serviced by us, but non the less guaranteed to keep time within +/- 30 seconds per day for 12 months. The monocoque stainless steel case is fully intact and show next to no wear, with a thick 14 carat gold cover on top. “Monocoque” means that the case does not open from the back, cancelling moisture seeping in due to a problem with the traditional gasket and screw on covers. Omega had the same case solution in their Seamaster DeVille series (introduced ca 1963). The case markings (reference and serial numbers) are 5821 108 and 5237028, which dates this New Art dress watch to ca 1964. The dimensions (mm) are as follows: Diameter: 33, thickness 10,7 and lug tip to lug tip 37,2.
