Sharing a vintage Favre-Leuba Daymatic today. I believe it's from the late 50s or early 60s... Date was first included as a window in the dial around this time.. The pioneer was.. Rolex. Up close the dial looks pretty aged but at least it's legible and even across the dial. Case is not overly polished and the edges are still distinct if not sharp. Crown has marking but not FL. And between the lower lugs the number 1944 is engraved. Probably a serial or model number as this watch is not that old I think. The number 1944 is repeated on the case back as well. Perhaps 1944 is the model number and 64003 is the serial number? The case back is nicely done and we can see the hourglass which was later stylized to become the FL trademark. This inside of the case back is only marked with... Vacuum.. An inside is a nicely finished movement.. I think it's a Felsa of some sort. Again we see the hourglass.. Quite a good effort. But what really attracted me to this watch was the band.. It's in really nice condition and fills the lugs nicely without any gap.. Not surprising as its... ...meant for a Favre-Leuba! ..this is a stylized version of the hourglass on the case back. It's manufactured by Aristo..anyone heard of this brand? Hope u enjoyed the pictures! Anilv
