-Description


FAVRE-LEUBA is a watch manufacturer founded in 1737 by Abraham Favre in Le Locle, Switzerland.

It is the second oldest watch brand in existence after Blancpain, with a history of more than 280 years.

In the 1960s, we created the first watch equipped with an altimeter, the Viverg, and the Bassi equipped with a depth gauge.

As a pioneer in the design, manufacture and sale of watches, it is one of the brands that has contributed to the development of the Swiss watch industry.


This watch is a hand-wound dress watch from the 1970s. The design features a slightly curved rectangular case.

The case size is 26.5mm in width and 30.5mm in height. Although it was a men's size at the time, it is a size that can be used by women as well.

The case material is gold-plated (GP) stainless steel. The crown is also decorated with a sapphire cabochon, which clearly indicates the high cost.

The dial is a combination of a champagne gold dial with a hairline finish and printed indexes with Roman numerals.

The needle is the same black leaf hand as the index. The design is very simple with only the brand notation, giving the impression of a stylish watch.

The movement is a hand-wound ETA/Puzo 7001. A machine that appeared in 1972 and was also used in Omega's DeVille and NOMOS in his Tangente.

It is a very reliable machine that is still used today.

As you can see in the photo, it is plated with brass color and is very well made.

Although there is a slight feeling of use, it comes with a genuine leather strap, a genuine GP buckle similar to the case, and a leather strap with stitching for replacement.

Overhauled. 1 year warranty.

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
