A vintage Gübelin 1950′s watch with a solid and heavy 14k gold screw back three piece case, and an automatic Swiss movement. The movement has twenty-five jewels and is adjusted to two positions. Gübelin is one of the highest quality Swiss watch brands initiated by the watchmaker Eduard Jakob Gübelin. Well known amongst watch collectors and dealers but less so amongst the general public. It is rare to find anyone wearing a vintage Gübelin, not a common watch.
