Not seen that much, a collectible watch from the 60's
Swiss made Hand-wind Alarm watch from Favre Leuba
A very well known company, Favre Leuba is the second oldest watch company in the Swiss watch industry. It's known for making some of the world's most unforgetable watches, like the diving watch Deep Blue, Bathycscape, and the Bivouac with an altimeter for moutaineering. Favre Leuba is like Rolex in India. Many fakes and cheap copies were made and sold on eBay. U should be careful when buying Favre Leuba watches on eBay.
The watch for sale here is 100% original bought and sold in the US. No fake copy. No cheap imitation. Made in 1965, it features 34mm stainless steel casing with an alarm mechanical movement. This Seabird model is certainly a rarer model than the more common Sea King and Sea Chief. It also sports a genuine crocodile leather band. Because it's been 50 years, the watch does have some nicks and suffs, especially on the crystal. But overall, it's in exemplary condition. Definitely a collector's watch. A delightful addition for any watch conneisseur out there.
