Wittnauer Mens Alarm Watch Vintage
On the back it says, 10K gold-filled bezel.
The face is what is extraordinary, gold markers for the hours that are ornately decorative, almost Egyptian-looking. The hand that points to the alarm is a squiggly blue line that contrasts nicely with the other two rich yellow-gold hands.
I imagine it was an expensive watch in its day. No band on this one, sorry, but it's a wind-up and it will work when you go out, and people will comment, no question, that it's a beauty.
Swiss made, of course.
