This sale is for a Catena Gents Swiss Dress Watch .

Swiss made , stunning and elegant dress watch in new old stock condition , Circa 1970s and unworn . These are known as a " Tank " watch by design . The sides of the watch strongly resemble the tracks of a WW1 tank . This design was made famous by Cartier . 

The Catena so strongly resembles the Cartier and i found some information on a forum that when these came out in the 70s a lot were used to make fake Cartier's by redialling them . This then made the Catena rarer than the Cartier .
