Just got this in today's mail. It's a 1960s Swiss Favre-Leuba Duomatic cushion case automatic. The case is 36x41mm
excluding the crown, and the power comes from a Favre-Leuba branded AS 1916 automatic with 17 jewels. The dial
was recently refinished, and the lume is outstanding. I added the mesh, which I think was MADE for this cushion case.

As soon as I list that vintage 14K LeCoultre, I'll turn my attention to prepping this one, too. Oh, did I mention I got it at
a ridiculous price? Twisted Evil

Tom, you are going to make someone's day when you put this up for auction,
and they end up winning it. Smile Can't get over the look of the case on this one
with not only the shape of it, but also the dual finishes of it. The pattern of the
brushing, and how it goes outward like that is really something, and the way
the sides have that mirror finish is a neat touch too. What a NICE bracelet
here as well sir. All of it works perfectly together to show off that spectacular
dial !!! Oh, and GREAT movement, as well as case-back also !

It's unbelievable how you find all of these Tom, and then have them fixed, and
flipped like this. Another vintage Favre-Leuba pick-up... 46145 Thanks for giving us a glimpse of this one.
