Wittnauer rectangle with formed movement

Wittnauer 5906


All white gold filled Wadsworth case measures 38mm long lug tip to lug tip, by 24mm wide, not including crown. The movement on this is very interesting, a Caliber 9RW-54, 15J signed "A. Wittnauer." It is a formed movement, similar to the Gruen Quadron series. The movement was also used in Longines watches, with the Caliber designation of 9.47 and 9.47N. The entire watch is a dead ringer for a Gruen Quadron, and even has a recessed crown. The dial is an older refinish. Crown appears original. The lug opening is 19.5mm and has a dark tan leather strap. A larger watch for its era, it has a striking look to it on the wrist.
