About the Watch
Special in every respect. The hands and the indices are worked in feuille style. The rather unusual shape for the time and the rose gold of the indices harmonize very well with the deep black of the dial and the gold case and hands. The biggest surprise, however, is the movement. The movement comes from the company Peseux S.A. which transformed itself in the early 30's from a parts manufacturer to a movement manufacturer and in the mid 80's would become part of ETA. The special thing about the movement is that the stamping is hardly visible which is rather unusual. In addition, the movement is gold and not silver as it was actually common for this model.All in all, the quality of workmanship is also higher than would have been standard for these movements, which suggests that this movement was hand finished with a lot of effort and then refined with gold. This would also explain the somewhat unclear engravings.

5 Reasons for Vintage
Watches that only a few wearReason Nr. 1
Nowadays, many high-quality watches are mass-produced. Vintage watches were often made in very small series with skilled craftsmanship instead of robots.
Quality that endures generationsReason Nr. 2
In earlier eras, watches were designed to last forever, including the components. There is no such thing as obsolescence. That is what we consider quality at Zurichberg.
Polarizing and characteristic designsReason Nr. 3
Today, only a few watch manufacturers can afford to launch polarising products and therefore produce watches that are aesthetically pleasing to all.
Value for MoneyReason Nr. 4
Vintage watches are overall cheaper than new watches. This is because new watches fulfill the essential financial objectives for the manufacturers, whereas vintage watches are financially "depreciated", so to speak.
Longevity that feels greatReason Nr. 5
We believe that in order to move towards a more sustainable future, it is absolutely necessary and logical to develop a sense for the quality of the past and to reuse products instead of producing new ones.
