Manufactured in the late 1930s, this is an unnamed rare "Ermetico" 1st Waterproof Chronograph with a Valjoux 22 movement and a black snail dial. It is equipped with an early type snap-back waterproof case, protruding from the middle case, which is occasionally seen in watches from the same era, such as Longines and Omega. This super rare piece features a step-design 38mm snap-back waterproof case with a substantial feel unique to its era, and a precise and beautiful black gilt snail dial. It is an exceptional piece that embodies the craftsmanship and design preferences of connoisseurs, with the inclusion of the renowned Valjoux Cal.22 movement, a masterpiece adopted by many brands, including Rolex.
