Leonidas (Heuer) Triple Date Moonphase In Steel SOLD

Stunning all original Leonidas triple date moon-phase calendar with a incredibly sharp original factory printed dial, fancy solid stainless steel case and 4 quick set buttons for easy setting.  One of my personal favorite vintage triple-date-moon models, this watch features a near mint dial with just a light patina around the edge between 9 and 12 o'clock and a beautifully crafted case with fancy horn style lugs.  The bezel and lugs have a nice polished finish with lightly brushed sides and back.   The day and month apertures are in French meaning this was the European sold version, produced in the 1940's a few years before the Leonidas-Heuer partnership officially formed.   A beautiful styled, complicated wristwatch in a sturdy solid stainless steel case, perfect for daily wear.
