The Record Watch Company of Switzerland was not able to sell watches under the same name in North America due to patent restrictions, so sold under several aliases such as Rivera, Banner and Kingston in the first half of the 20th century. This beautiful example of their famous Datofix model has its original dial and looks fantastic on the wrist. The moonphase dial is gorgeous with gold and bright blue enamel. All calender functions on this watch are working perfectly. A truly stunning example of this high quality complicated calendar watch in wonderful overall condition.
Note: Please remember, when setting triple date moonphase watches such as this one, never use the button pushers between 10:00pm to 3:00am as it is possible to damage the inner workings. At that time the components that change the calendar functions are engaged and the pushers will not work properly. If they are pressured, this could damage the parts inside.
