This beautiful 8-day dashboard instrument comes with a wooden (oak) holder signed “Gowllands”. It was sold by Alf Lie, Oslo ca 1965 (Heuer-Leonidas merged in 1964). Alf Lie numbered his sold watches, and this one reads on the back plate “ALF 171 – 2085 x”. The number on the instrument is 24427. The pictured catalogue from 1963 assures the prospective buyer that there is no Strontium 90 in the luminous paint (!). Therefore also the T<25mc (micro curie) printed on the dial. T, which stands for Tritium is a less radioactive material used in watches from the late fifties. The signed, 15 jewel movement is is very good condition, and the dial and hands are perfect. The crystal has some scratches, indeed proving that this has been a useful instrument in its time. The backplate is 57,4 x 57,4 mm. The wooden case is a 100,5 x 119,5 x 36,2 mm. We have presently placed it in the care of our watchmaker, so unfortunately it is not ready to be priced or sold yet.
