Fluva Swiss Pocket Watch
Fluva Swiss made this manual wind novelty gamblers pocket watch. This wonderful and novel creation was adopted by a few very high-end Swiss brands, such as Longines and Cartier, but also a few smaller, more niche brands. With one side a roulette wheel, the other 8 racing greyhounds, two games can be enjoyed! The inner pocket watch is surrounded by a 'bakelite' plastic frame with inner bezel that is mounted on ball bearings. The center of the watch can be held, and then the outer bezel spun to stop on a random number or dog. Bets can be placed before the spin! Inside sits a wonderful, all original, Arabic numeral watch dial, with subsidiary seconds at the 6 o'clock position. There is a crown at 3 which winds and sets the time, and so it can be carried as a pocket watch as well! Please note, the rear of the piece has a personalisation engraved into the back. A great conversation piece, Swiss-made, circa 1950's.
