The Pierpont watch company was founded by Swiss watch makers Sauter Feres & Cie early last century. They produced a fine range of watches which today have become collectable. The company did not survive the so-called Quartz Crisis tin the late 1970's to mid 1980's.
This Pierpont reference 11258 is in remarkably good shape for its age and has a beautifully aged dial in original condition. The dial is busy yet balanced. It has triple date complications; a wheel displaying the month in Spanish and a red central hand pointing to the weekdays which are laid out in a circle around the applied Arabic hour indices. It takes five weeks for the day hand to complete the circle!
The days of the months are laid out on a rotating inner bezel outside of the weekdays, which can be set with the 10 o' clock crown.
There is a sub dial at 6 o'clock with a sweeping second hand.
The case is gold plated with minor wear consistent with a watch of this age which has been taken very well care of.
The recently serviced movement is manual. It beats at 18,000 A/h, winds and sets nicely and is keeping time.
The watch comes fitted on a new tan padded genuine calf leather calf with a matching gold coloured buckle.
This watch is old and while it has passed our testing and does keep time and has a good power reserve, it must be taken into account that it is a vintage watch and its accuracy is not to be compared to modern quartz watches.
This watch comes in a practical padded and zipped travel case from our German supplier Beco-Technic. We sell this watch on behalf of a customer and cannot offer a 12 month warranty on this watch but you may return it within 14 days.
