Very Cool Large Vintage 1920's Men's Solid 18k Gold Tanke Aureole Wire Lug Watch:
>>> Please read the complete listing before you make your offer. Thank you. I am always trying to offer the nicest vintage watches here on .Here is a special watch. There are several reasons I think this Aureole gold watch is special. Number one is the size of this Tanke style watch. It measures 25.9 mm wide and is 41.7 mm long. Has 20 mm lug spacing. Very large for the time it was made. Number 2 is the age of this watch. The wire lugs on this watch date it back to the 1910's or early 1920's. Nearly 100 years old!!! The third reason I think this watch is special is the condition and design. It is in super nice and maybe original condition. The case is hinged and is operating smoothly. The case back has a few dipples but this is an 18k gold watch and 18k gold is soft. The fourth reason I bought this watch is it is 0.750 gold or 18k gold in USA terms. The gold color is slightly green. This Aureole branded watch must be a European brand watch as I have only seen this brand a few times in my 30 years of watch collecting. The movement is SIGNED and marked 17 Rugis which is English terms for 17 Jewels. This handsome watch is NOT running but is certainly worth getting fixed as in my opinion it is a near museum quality timepiece. The SIGNED dial is handsome and might even be original. Classic timepiece design. The watch has a 1944 dedication on the back but I am certain this watch is must oldwer than that. I am selling thei Aureolo 17 Rubis 18k Gold watch for repair. I am including a NOS 20 mm open end leather strap for the next owner. Once this watch is running it will be a real winner. I am selling this hard to find Mido Automatic watch as-is and as found and as described. I have no service records for this 100+ year old Aureole Tanke watch. Sold as pictured.Please check my response and offer with confidence. I have many repeat and happy customers. <<<< >>>>
