Acquired this vintage Hy Moser watch at recent NAWCC show in Del Mar.
Looks like about 1920's design; very large for art deco stylings. Dial has a great patina, so looks original. Watch with pin setting (means crown doesnt pull out to set)--runs great...seems to have a rose gold plating over casing, but can only tell from the inside. Bears Hy Moser logo on the inside movement, but very hard to photograph.
Crystal very large and thick--seems original, as it is so thick and angle cut. Bottom of 4th pic shows thickness/cut of crystal.
Any other information about this brand or model? I read that it was a very popular manufacturer before 1900...
