Notes

Beyer, Zurich

Beyer is not just a well-known name, but a whole philosophy rooted in a famous tradition. The firm of Beyer was founded in 1760, and since then it has been passed down through the generations from father to son, each one a fully-trained watchmaker.

The personalised dial, known today as “double signature”, makes this watch extremely rare.
