Beguelin & Cie. Beguelin was a large Swiss family associated with watches since 1903. In the 1950's the name DAMAS began to appear as associated Beguelin & Cie.

In 1907's, in Tabriz, Iran, in a watch shop called RezvanFar, It was operated by a man named Samad Rezvan and his brother.  They distributed most of the famous brands with their own name branded on them -like Cuervo Y Sobrinos, the famous Cuban watchmaker, T two brands were DAMAS and VAVZER. Today, it is said, that there are hundreds of vintage watches in the mid-east that have these names on them..

Both Names Are The Name:
SAMAD REZVAN IN REVERSE

SAMAD - DAMAS

STUNNING


NOTE: ANY BLACK "STUFF" YOU SEE IS BUFFING COMPOUND THAT WAS DEPOSITED WHEN  I DECIDED TO GENTLY  POLISH THE CRYSTAL USING A BLACK ROUGE COMPOUND TO GIVE IT THAT HIGH LUSTER LOOK AND DID NOT REALIZE I FORGOT TO WIPE IT DOWN  BEFORE SHOOTING.

CASES CAN TAKE HOURS TO
MAKE THEM LOOK LIKE THEY ARE

IT TAKES A LOT OF BUFFING AT HIGH HEAT TO RESTORE CASES.
DURING THAT PROCESS THE ROUGE IS ACTUALLY BUFFED INTO THE SKIN
ONE HAS TO "FEEL" THE PIECE TO GET IT RIGHT. SO MY HANDS ARE
USED TO CASE TEMPERATURES THAT ARE SO HOT THEY CAN BURN PAPER
AS A RESULT OF THIS FACT, IT TAKES DAYS TO GET THE ROUGE OUT OF
MY HANDS. SO IF YOU SEE PICS OF MY HANDS IN PHOTOS
, KNOW IT IS SEMI-PERMANENT FOR DAYS........
AND THAT IS WHY OUR CASES ARE AWESOME.

DETAIL IS CLEAR AND SHARP
YET THIS CASE IS SO SMOOTH YOU
WILL NOT WANT TO LET IT GO

NOTICE THE SPLIT
IT LOCKS TO MOVEMENT STEM END
ONCE PULLED YOU USE A CRYSTAL PULLER TO REMOVE CRYSTAL;L
