This classically styled Art Deco timepiece is a fantastic example of the era.  Most likely produced for the French market by the Zodiac Watch Company in the 1930's.  The dial reads Zodiac Incassable which means "unbreakable" in English.  The solid stainless steel case is truly sharp, echoing the form of the most famous Art Deco watch around, the LeCoultre Reverso.  What makes this watch special is the uniquely formed movement to accommodate the recessed crown and its early shock absorbing system on the balance.  Although the dial does have some slight spotting the watch still looks sharp and has that unique vintage feel.  A true classic.
