This simply gorgeous vintage pocket watch can also be worn as a medallion. Its unique design is a blend of Victorian, intricate features and floral details. Carefully preserved, fully functional, and so timelessly elegant.
Maty was started in 1951 by the 24 year old Gérard Mantion and his wife Elyane, with the idea of selling watches by mail order from his little workshop on the rue Janney in Besançon. His first catalogue featured just a dozen mens and ladies watches. Gerard Mantion was originally going to call his business Mati, but decided it would have a more American feel to it if it was changed to Maty.
Maty are now based on the Boulevard Kennedy in the Montrapon-Fontaine-Ecu quarter of Besançon, as well as having facilities in Belfort, and overall employ around 800 people. Although Gerard Mantion died in 2004, Maty is still to this day 100% family owned.
Please notice in the photos that two of the blue stones are missing. The watch will be shipped like this, unless we find two suitable stones to replace the original ones. We cannot guarantee that we'll manage to replace them.
