If I need to explain this watch to you then please forgive me for you will never know the sense of relief I had when I finally placed a Grana in a case alongside the rest of my " dozen ",I had dreamt of owning one of course but did I seriously believe I would ? and then in stunning original condition having survived who knows what in the last 70 years as a military timepiece wow!
Ok so after a treating myself to a large glass of Pinot and patting myself on the back I duly noted down in my records the description I now offer to you ,but believe me my words can't express the joy of fulfilling this ambition.
Estimated to be 1 of only 1000 – 1500 made by this manufacturer for delivery to the mod 1944 , this piece carries all the correct markings on dial , movement and case . This piece is stunning and will be the crowning piece in any collection and can if required be accompanied with a complementary bottle of my favourite Pinot Noir.
Stock No. 195
