Dispatches from Poland

Step into a piece of history with this exceptionally rare Recta military watch, crafted in Switzerland in the 1940s. Distinguished by its steel case with a unique diameter of 35 mm, this timepiece stands out for its rarity and commanding presence.

Featuring an original dial adorned with a beautifully aged patina, it tells a story of its era as much as it does time. The watch operates smoothly, having been meticulously serviced by a master, ensuring it remains in excellent working condition.

This Recta military watch is not just a timekeeping device but a collector's gem, offering a glimpse into the past with the sophistication and durability of Swiss craftsmanship.

The Recta Watch Company was originally founded by Antoine Muller and Alcide Vaucher in Bien, Switzerland in 1897. At that time it was called the Muller & Vaucher Fabrique d'Horlogerie. In 1898 the name Recta was registered and they built their own factory in Bien in 1902.
