This Watch

Henri Frédéric Sandoz, born in 1851 in Le Locle, Switzerland, was a self-made man who founded Henri Sandoz & Cie. in the 1870s.  In 1890, after producing complicated watches for Cyma, Sandoz formed a partnership with Schwob and established a company at Malleray, near Tavannes.  This new business was known as Tavannes Watch Co., although many watches were still produced under the name of Henri Sandoz & Fils.  The enterprise occupied a 'model factory' and employed over 1,000 staff, producing 2,500 watches per day.  After the death of Sandoz in 1913, the company continued to expand and 25 years later, it was manufacturing over 4,000 products per day.

Extra Points 

This watch has a black dial with a mixture of lumed dot, baton and arrow markers.  It also has lumed hour, minute and centre seconds Mercedes hands.  The colour of the lume gives a nice age to the watch.  A date window sits at 3 o'clock.

What we think

Reminiscent of a Rolex Explorer and submariner combined , but at a fraction of the price, we love the look and feel of this Sandoz.  It is very comfortable to wear and looks great on any strap!
