MARVIN 1940s ART DECO DIAL VINTAGE OVERSIZED STAINLESS STEEL VALJOUX 22 CHRONOMarvin
For auction is an oversized 37mm Marvin vintage chronograph with a true Art Deco design. Many people use the term “Art Deco” to describe anything remotely modernist looking, without understanding the style. This watch is classically Deco, with teardrop lugs and a font on the Arabic numerals that is straight out of the streamline 30’s. Unlike many watches of the era, this one is oversized, wearable and a chronograph. Truly a spectacular watch, this deserves a place in the collection of anyone who appreciates Art Deco design, early large-sized chronographs or great looking watches in general. This wtch is powered by a signed Valjoux 22 and is working great. Believe us, this cool Marvin is a watch that feels great to own and wear. Watches like these are highly prized and rarely change hands. We are ready to pass it onto someone who gets it, like we do
