WWII "P" SERIES
MILITARY TRIPLE DIAL

NATO BALLISTIC STRAP
 ****************************************

THIS WITTNAUER HAS THE RARE WITTNAUER 11P WHICH IS THE 15 JEWEL PESEUX 170 CALIBER MADE 1944-1945.

[15J WERE STANDARD FOR MOST WWII MILITRARY WATCHES BRITISH GOV HAD 15J MIN]

Peseuxe quality always tended to higher grade than average. "Peseux" refers to the locale of Peseux within the Boundry district of the Canton of Neuchatel, where small independent ebauche producer Charles Bernese began in 1923. By 1933 Ebauche S.A. took over. ETA. 

FINALY  "Fabrique d'ebauches de Peseux, S.A." produced the calibre 7001 from  1971 until 1985 when the long history of Peseux-produced handwinds came to an end -- the same year that Ebauches SA became the present consolidated ETA SA Fabriques d'Ebauches. Production of the movement was only recently restarted, though now at one of the ETA factories in Grenchen.
