Record Watch Co., Tramelan "Sector Watch"

, Case No. 329, 60 x 71 mm, 100 g, circa 1905

A rare Art Nouveau design watch with retrograde time indicator - with original morocco case


Case: silver, the back side with flower scroll ornaments, case maker's punch mark "Holy Frères". Dial: enamel, retrograde Arabic hours, retrograde red and black Arabic minutes, signed, blued spade hands. Movm.: triangle-shaped movement, frosted, gilt, signed, "Brevet 27961", screw compensation balance.

It is very unusual to find one of these extremely rare "Sector" watches in such an "as good as new" condition. We know of no other example that still has its original box.

This type of watch is based on Swiss patent no. 27.961 which Giovanni Sgherlino of Turin received on April 9, 1903. A group of watchmakers and dealers from Tramelan and Tavannes took an interest in the unusual design and registered the "Record Watch Co. SA." on December 16, 1903; the new company building was in Tramelan.
